About 10 years ago, I found myself so exhausted by 2 pm that I had to close my office door and lay down on the floor. I couldn't understand why this was happening to me, and I was very concerned. I went to one doctor and explained my symptoms. She said my problem was nutritional and recommended I see a registered dietician. Before I made that appointment, I mentioned my symptoms to Dr. Mizus. He said I might have sleep apnea, which I never heard of. I was tested and sure enough I did have sleep apnea. After being fitted with a mask, I finally got the deep sleep I had been lacking. I never had to lay down again in the middle of the day. When it comes to diagnosing my health issues, Dr. Mizus has always been remarkable, even over the phone when I've been too sick to get out of bed and come to the office. In addition to being smart, he is also very caring and compassionate. He never criticizes me if I don't loose the weight I should or slack off on my exercise regime. He really is the best physician I've ever known.
