Hello, my name is Randy and I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. I have had my Inspire implant since 2017 and love it! I tried CPAP, struggled to keep the mask on for 6 months, and did not meet the insurance company usage requirement. I felt defeated and lost hope until I heard a story about Inspire.
I enjoy cooking and travel, but most of all I have always liked to help others. Whether it be helping them to move or just providing a ride to the doctors, I have always helped friends and family.
Why I chose Inspire to treat my sleep apnea:
I was feeling defeated when my CPAP was taken back, and I desperately wanted to find a treatment that would work better for me. I heard a story about Inspire and spent a great deal of time speaking to Inspire representatives on the phone to get all my questions answered. Also, the Inspire team helped me gain insurance approval. This was the last option for me so I went for it.
In a few short words, I would describe Inspire as:
Inspire gave me my life back. I feel ten years younger. I used to nap after work, fall asleep driving cars, be impatient and frankly cranky all the time. I had not dreamt in years and now I dream and remember them. I have more energy, and my overall health has improved greatly. I am traveling more, with one less piece of luggage.
Why am I a patient ambassador?
I have always loved helping others, and I want to give back and share my great experience. Sleep Apnea is a horrible sleep disorder that many people do not address and I want to help others who are seeking treatment to improve their health.
