Dr. Avi Weisfogel’s Incredible Journey of Fighting Sleep Apnea

During his busy schedule, Dr. Avi Weisfogel noticed that some of his patients were suffering sleep deprivation. The common disease among his patients was sleep apnea. Sleep apnea affects the breathing patterns while asleep; this may result in conditions such as stroke. Motivated by the urgency to halt the problem Dr. Avi downed his tools as a dentist to come up with an explication for the sleeping disorder.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel was born on March 7, 1972. He attended Rutgers University for his degree in Biology and Psychology. He later attended New York College of Dentistry where he earned his DDS. He took a course in dental sleep medicine which has been the source of his epiphany.

The journey had a few hurdles here and there, but the determination to find a solution motivated Dr. Avi even more. Dr. Avi finally came up with a remedy through research and development. However, there was a conundrum, getting a word to his patients. Being a Dentist, you are always guaranteed to have patients lined up for treatment, but with sleep disorder it is different. Being a new niche, acquiring new patients and also getting the right numbers proved to be a problem.

Dr. Avi spent an immense amount of money in research. Marketing the product also requires some financial backing, but with his financial status, he needed more patients and the type who would be willing to invest in their sleeping health. Dr. Avi tried a few strategies with none yielding the desired fruits; marketing was not getting to the target market as expected.

Dr. Avi returned to the drawing board. This time he focused on the areas with people affected by sleep Apnea, identifying the location wasn’t a huge problem since its standard in every 4-10% of the population. Avi was on a mission; he started training others his craft and partnered with medical experts to establish their sleeping clinics in their practices. The strategy produced the results as evident from how common sleeping diagnosis has become familiar.

During his free time, Dr. Avi watches basketball with the New York Knicks being his favorite. Frequently he enjoys a good game of tennis notably Wimbledon and the French Open.
