Sleep and Pulmonary Diagnostics Center


The physicians and their assistants at Desert Pulmonary & Sleep Consultants, PLC have been leaders in sleep medicine since 1989. Their sleep medicine specialties have been instrumental in the development of the sleep centers at Banner Desert Medical Center, Banner Baywood Medical Center, and Valley Oximetry Sleep Disorders Center in Mesa, Arizona. In November 2006, the practice opened a sleep and pulmonary diagnostic center in south Gilbert. This center provides a comfortable homelike setting for patients who require over night sleep studies and can perform full pulmonary diagnostic studies as well.

                                               EXTENDED SERVICES
May 2016: Chris Consolino joins our other board certified Physician Assistants.  Chris grew up in Denver, Colorado and has lived in Arizona for over 20 years. He worked as an engineer before deciding to pursue a more meaningful and satisfying career as a Physician Assistant (PA). He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Colorado in Boulder and a Master of Computer Science degree from Arizona State University in Tempe. Chris received his Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies from A.T. Still University in Mesa, where he completed intensive training in family medicine, women’s health, internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, general surgery, psychiatry, and cardiology before graduating in 2015. Chris is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the Arizona State Association of Physician Assistants.

July 2014: Kevin Main joins the practice as a board certified Physician Assistant.  Kevin is a former Gilbert resident who has recently returned to the East Valley upon completion of his education at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. He received training in internal medicine as well as completing his Master’s thesis in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).  Kevin will be assisting the physician team in the treatment of pulmonary disease as well as sleep disorders. He serves as a member of the Arizona State Association of Physician Assistants.  Kevin enjoys spending his free time running, hiking and playing tennis.

2012: Desert Pulmonary & Sleep Consultants welcomes Physician Assistant Jamie Black to our practice.  Jamie will be assisting the physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with both pulmonary disease and sleep disorders.


June 2010: The Desert Pulmonary & Sleep Consultants Diagnostic Center has expanded to a six-bed capacity.  We have also increased  our staffing, scheduling and other resources proportionately.  As a result, we are better able to serve and accommodate the physicians and patients who depend on our services.

                                              EXPANDED DIAGNOSTIC TESTING

As of April 2013, Desert Pulmonary & Sleep Consultants is accredited as an Out-of-Center Sleep Testing facility by the AASM.  We can perform studies in our own diagnostic center or remotely, in a patient's home or other facility with the same level of professional accreditation and acumen.

These procedures are known as Home Sleep Apnea Tests (HSAT).  They can detect Obstructive Sleep Apnea in select patients without the necessity or expense of an overnight stay in the Sleep Center.  Ask your sleep specialist if you are a candidate for this procedure.
