Sleep Center

I am Dr. Joe Golish, and am a Professor Emeritus at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and Medical Director of the Sleep Resource Foundation. I believe you will remember my work as the founder of the Cleveland Clinic Sleep Section in the Pulmonary Department, where I was the Director for the better part of two decades. I retired more than a year ago and have decided to dedicate a significant portion of the next years to improving sleep health for all Americans.

I have recently begun a private practice with an affiliation with NorthCoast Clinical Trials Sleep Center, which was founded by Dr. Bijan Bastani, a renowned psychiatrist specializing in clinical trials and sleep medicine. We have a full service sleep center run by Ms. Lucy Buzoianu, RPSGT and Geoffrey Sleeper, RRT. We can accommodate all of your sleep diagnostic and therapeutic needs, from initial consultation to diagnosis (both in-lab and Home Sleep Testing) and CPAP and OAT dispensing.

By maintaining a small, individualized center, we can help you with all of your patientís sleep needs without the often cold and impersonal service from the large institutions, while allowing you full control of your patientís medical care.
