Wisconsin Sleep Clinic

If you're having sleep problems, talk to your physician – he or she may refer you for an appointment at the Wisconsin Sleep clinic to talk with a sleep specialist about the amount of sleep you get in a day, your ability to fall asleep or stay asleep and other sleep-related issues.

Based on your consultation, your Wisconsin Sleep physician might recommend some changes to your sleep schedule, medications, or behavioral treatments to help improve your sleep.

The Wisconsin Sleep clinic is run by the University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation, which supports the primary and specialty clinical activities of the faculty physicians of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. The clinic director is Mary Klink, MD.

The Wisconsin Sleep,™ Inc. laboratory includes 16 sleep study rooms. Each has a full-sized bed, flat-screen television, data ports for laptop use and private bathroom. The rooms were designed for your comfort and to promote good sleep.


That patient-friendly environment comes with some of the latest in sleep technology under the supervision of highly trained sleep professionals. Painless and easy, sleep studies at the Wisconsin Sleep laboratory can happen during the day or night, depending on your sleep problems.


The Wisconsin Sleep, Inc. laboratory is an independent diagnostic testing facility operated as a joint venture of the University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation and Meriter.
