I had breathing difficulty and chest pressure for approx the last 2 yrs which I discovered on my own was related to CPAP use. [...] Dr. Modrack agreed it would be ok for me not to use CPAP. He provided some suggestions that could help to alleviate snoring, higher AHI's etc which I did find helpful. I was grateful to finally get some info and felt heard in this visit now 2 yrs later.
