Dear Referring Physicians,
I trust this message finds you in good health.
Over the past 13 years, we’ve appreciated the trust you’ve placed in our practice, allowing us to provide comprehensive pulmonary and sleep medicine services for your patients. I’m writing today to share significant updates about our practice’s evolution. Effective February 1st, 2024, Walton Pulmonary Medicine will transform into Holistic Sleep Restoration, exclusively focusing on providing specialized and personalized sleep medicine services.
This strategic transition underscores our commitment to elevating the quality of patient care. At Holistic Sleep Restoration, we’re broadening our scope to include psychotherapy designed for patients contending with chronic insomnia. Our services encompass in-lab and high-quality home sleep studies, advanced diagnostics, and tailored treatments for a wide range of sleep disorders, catering to both pediatric and adult patients. Our mission extends beyond treatment; we aspire to educate and devise personalized treatment plans for each patient, with a core focus on enhancing sleep health.
Were you aware that over 80% of patients with sleep apnea go undiagnosed, leading to an annual economic burden of $411 billion in the US alone? Sleep disorders exacerbate the prevalence of various chronic health conditions, from hypertension and diabetes to heightened risks of coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation, stroke, obesity, and declining mental health. These conditions, in turn, affect workplace productivity and contribute to increased accident rates.
Dr. Michel Jeannot, board-certified in sleep and pulmonary medicine with over 13 years of experience, is dedicated to raising awareness about the critical health impacts of sleep-disordered breathing. Our collaborative aim is to optimize the sleep health of every patient referred to us.

We understand that this change may affect our collaborative efforts and your patient care processes. Rest assured, our team is committed to ensuring a seamless transition while maintaining uninterrupted care for all current patients. We aim to collaborate closely with you to facilitate this transition, ensuring your patients continue receiving the necessary care.
Although this decision has brought inconvenience to both patients and referring providers, we believe that in the long term, it will be beneficial to our patients, especially as we shift to offering virtual consultations only starting February 1st, 2024. Should you have any questions, concerns, or require specific assistance during this transitional phase, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at 336-428-3545 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your unwavering support, understanding, and cooperation as we embark on this new chapter. We greatly value our collaboration and anticipate continuing our dedication to serving our patients together.
