More than 1.5 billion people reset their clocks every year, turning clocks backward by an hour in the fall and forward by an hour in the spring. These transitions can disrupt internal biologic rhythms and influence the duration and quality of sleep. But does losing or gaining that one hour have health consequences? A 2008 report in the New England Journal of Medicine by Dr. Janszky and colleagues suggests that it does. The authors showed that there is a significant increase in the daily rate of heart attack in the first few days after we “spring ahead” and get an hour less of sleep, but that in the first few days after we “fall back” and gain an hour of sleep, there are fewer heart attacks.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Gersappe is an excellent physician. He knows his field of expertise and shows genuine concern for my overcoming health problems in his field. He is warm and caring, never rushing me out and listening to my concerns.
Swedish Patient

She's very good and helpful cause one time I almost gave up but she talked me into with the helped of the other nurse so I'm really thankful.
Swedish Patient

Swedish Patient

I am THRILLED to have Dr. Gersappe as my primary care provider.
Swedish Patient

Good experience.
Swedish Patient

Sleep clinic/doctor is essentially unable to help me as my problem is something other than apnea.

Dr. Gersappe is an excellent doctor. He diagnosed a long-standing problem and prescribed effective treatment. He's very personable, easy to talk to, caring, and takes time to answer your questions. I have recommended him to several friends.
