Springville next stop for Sleep Insights

February 26, 2014 Updated Feb 26, 2014 at 10:36 AM EDT

A Rochester sleep medicine practice is continuing its expansion west with a third location in the Western New York region.

Sleep Insights opened its newest site on West Main Street in Springville, offering consultative and sleep therapy services, as well as overnight and home sleep testing.

The new site is the 10th for the company, and joins local sites in Olean and Cheektowaga.

Sleep Insights is made up of two privately-owned companies: Sleep Insights Medical Services PLLC and Sleep Insights Management Services LLC. The medical business was founded in 2005 and is owned by Dr. Kenneth Plotkin, a board-certified sleep specialist and neurologist. The management business was founded in 2006 through a partnership with Jeffrey Dann, a certified public accountant in Buffalo and medical practice executive. Dann now owns the management company and is president and CEO of both companies.

Sleep Insights offers treatment and diagnosis in sleep apnea, insomnia, excessive snoring and other sleep disorders. In addition to its own locations, the company offers home testing for individuals with obstructive sleep apnea.

The other local sites include a facility on West State Street in Olean; and a location inside the Homewood Suites by Hilton at the Airport in Cheektowaga. Sleep Insights also has locations in the Rochester and Geneseo regions.

The Springville site will be managed by Dr. Jacob Dominik, a board-certified sleep specialist and neurologist.

"We recognized there was an unmet need in this geographical area," he said. "Our focus is on helping each patient as soon as we can, the best we can. Sometimes that means expanding to a new location, since we can then minimize patients' drive time and make it easier for them to explore treatment options."
