 Welcome to the Texas State Sleep Center

The Sleep Center at Texas State University is located in the Health Professions Building on the first floor in Room 105.  With a mission to serve educational, research, and diagnostic needs, the Texas State Sleep Center serves community residents in the surrounding San Marcos area, students, staff, administration, and faculty.  The Sleep Center was equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and furnishings through gracious gifts-in-kind from CompuMedics USA, Martech Medical Systems, North Carolina Furniture Direct, The Nautilus Group, Inc., and Phillips/Respironics, Inc.

All sleep studies must be ordered by your primary care physician or a sleep specialist.   The sleep study prescription form can be found above.  Feel free to download the form above (TxSt Sleep Center Prescription Form) and take to your primary physician.   Once your physician faxes the completed request to our office, your insurance will be verified and we will contact you to schedule a sleep study at your convenience.  After the sleep study is performed, the study will be scored and interpreted by a sleep specialist.  The results of your study will be returned to your primary physician and he/she will contact you for further instructions or treatment, as needed.
