"Dr. Drake/Dr. Yarbrough, I am writing to thank you and your staff for a wonderful experience. I have been using your dental sleep device for over a year now and it has changed my sleep quality immensely. I have obstructive sleep apnea and was prescribed a CPAP machine. I was not very keen on this and was seeking an alternative. I was referred to your office for the dental sleep device. The personal attention I received from you and your staff has been wonderful. From initial consultation to fitting of the device, I was treated very well. Recently, I had an incident where the device was slightly deformed. Dr. Yarbrough refitted it and it works even better than it did before. I appreciate all of your attention and help to improve my sleep. Thank you again for a great experience."
"Hello. I am America Velasquez. I am glad I went to Dental Sleep Solutions of San Antonio. I would snore very loudly, fall asleep while people were talking to me, and get drowsy while driving or sitting down. Since I have gone to Dental Sleep Solutions of San Antonio and started wearing my dental device, I find I have more energy. I'm not tired all the time. I don't even wake up at night anymore. I love that I have more energy, and people say, "You're looking so good" I feel great! I recommend that you go see Dr. Drake and Dr. Yarbrough, as soon as you can. I promise that you'll feel great and have a better outlook on life."
"I am extremely pleased with Dr. Drake and his staff. They are so genuinely nice, friendly and very helpful. I received my sleep apnea oral appliance (Herbst Appliance) one month ago. I am very happy with much improved sleep, more energy and no snoring. Dr. Drake and his staff explained everything and how it was going to work. The minute you walk go into the office, you are greeted with cheerfulness and smiles. Everyone is very knowledgeable and helpful. The most professional and patient friendly office around."
"I, Dee Villarrubia, wish to praise the work of Dr. Richard Drake and Dr. Stephen Yarbrough and Dental Sleep Solutions. Before coming to him, I had sleep apnea so bad that I woke up 27 or more times an hour, just to try and breathe. My oxygen level dipped to 77%. I had no REM sleep nor dreams. I was informed that I could die either from not breathing (27x) an hour or due to a stroke from low oxygen. I now sleep and dream. Friends say, "What did you do, Dee? You look so good, happy, and young!" I tell them I owe this to the team of Drs. Drake and Yarbrough and for fitting me with a TAP 3."
