Ryan has spent most of his professional career in healthcare because he loves to be in a role where he can help people live better, healthier, and more fulfilled lives. He started this journey in dentistry and orthodontics with Invisalign, and then made his way into the vascular world with Bard Peripheral Vascular (BD); however, Ryan fully committed to the field of sleep medicine when he learned his father’s detrimental, cardiovascular condition could have been improved with a sleep test. It wasn’t until after his father went through open-heart surgery, a quadruple bypass, multiple angioplasties, and four stent placements that he was prescribed a sleep test. After testing they learned that he had severe apnea and could have led to his father’s cardiovascular issues. Sadly, after years of PAP therapy, Ryan’s father experienced a stroke due to the fact that his sleep testing and therapy started far too late. Great news, his father Eddie, is doing very well today!
