Hello- Thank you for asking the question here at JustAnswer. I have read what you have written and am happy to respond.

I am sorry to hear about this problem with your son and the fact that he did not have a good result at the Center in Red Bank.

If I were you and or him, I would contact the sleep disorders center at Georgetown University. Make an appt with one of the Doctors and bring the results of the previous study to the appt

that is a good start.

Here is a link to the Georgetown Hospital website:
