Did you know majority of children that are diagnosed with ADHD are misdiagnosed? They actually have a sleep disorder, which results in disruptive and inattentive behaviors. Most childhood sleep apnea is caused by obstructive or narrow airways due to enlarged tonsils, mucus retention cysts and/or sinus polyps. In a few seconds, Dr. Greenberg can assess a child’s airway and sinuses with our easy i-CAT 3D airway scan. Read more about RxSmile’s 3D imaging technology >

Our sweet patient, Luke, had a large sinus polyp that Dr. Greenberg was able to identify during a consultation. He referred him to an ENT for further evaluation and eventual removal of the polyp. Luke’s mom says his breathing has improved tremendously, which in turn has helped his sleep, growth and concentration. We are so happy he feels better and can finally BREATHE!
