"My SomnoMed appliance is working very well for me. We have adjusted it to the highest setting, and three overnight sleep testing have proven that I am sleeping much better even though I am asleep and not aware that it working very satisfactory. I guess that is the point! I don’t find the appliance uncomfortable to use. Over three years, I tried several CPAP masks and sleeping units and they were not successful for me, (very confining), but the appliance has solved my sleep problems."

"I suffered from sleep apnea for over ten years. I had to retire earlier than I wanted to because I just couldn’t function for the full 8 hours that I needed to. I asked the sleep specialist, are there any other medical interventions out there that weren’t designed around the CPAP strategy? The answer was YES and I was referred to Dr. J.C. Goodwin in Prescott Valley. Dr. Goodwin designed an oral appliance specifically for my problem and it has changed my life. I am now sleeping 6-7 solid hours and I feel like a new person. There aren’t any tubes, or anything else that would interfere with my restless style of sleep. I couldn’t be happier to write up this testimonial for Dr. Goodwin. One last comment, Dr. Goodwin is a Medicare provider which means I paid nothing out of pocket for the appliance."

"I first met Dr. Goodwin about 3 1/2 years ago when he explained the oral appliance to replace CPAP to the group of doctors I worked with. I knew immediately that this was the solution for me since I was waking up daily with my CPAP mask on the floor and more tired than ever. My appointment for the fitting of the appliance was easy and adjusting to wearing it for me was much easier than wearing the CPAP mask. My sleep study with the oral appliance showed a significant reduction in the number of apnea episodes and I have been getting a good night’s sleep ever since. If any problems arise, it is easy to get a follow-up appointment with Dr. Goodwin and he has been able to readjust my appliance for a better fit."

"When diagnosed with sleep apnea, a CPAP machine was prescribed for me. It was cumbersome and I literally hated it. Since being fitted with an oral appliance from Dr. Goodwin, according to my wife, I do not snore and I don’t really know I have it in my mouth.”

"I required the use of a CPAP for two years. My sleep specialist thought I could be a candidate for an oral appliance and stated, ‘I refer my patients ONLY to Dr. Goodwin.’ I have been extremely pleased with Dr. Goodwin’s professionalism, thoroughness and kindness. My sleep apnea has been controlled beautifully now for 1 ½ years"
