Here is what Dr. Medalie’s colleagues are saying about their experience accessing behavioral treatment for insomnia complaints


David Gozal, MD, MBA, PhD (Hon)

The scarcity of behavioral sleep specialists and the exponentially increasing demands for cognitive and behavioral therapy have led to a huge demand that cannot be met along with a surge in digital platforms offering such services. DrLullaby provides an integrated set of digital and telehealth solutions for such sleep issues allowing physicians and healthcare practitioners to focus their efforts and time on all other aspects of sleep medicine. In my experience, the referral process is simple and seamless, and patient satisfaction has been the rule.



Hrayr Attarian, MD

I have been in, exclusively sleep medicine, practice for over 20 years and have learned the immense value of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). Since April of 2020 and with increasing pandemic related stress the referrals for insomnia to my clinic have exponentially increased. My psychologist colleague has been booking several months out. I needed to find an adjunctive treatment option to meet the rising demand for CBT-I. I contacted Dr. Medalie in April of 2021 and she suggested the app Dr Lullaby. Since then I have prescribed Dr Lullaby to a dozen of patients and they all have been very satisfied with it. The referral process is very user friendly as well.

In our practice, I frequently see insomnia as a comorbid condition with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). With these patients, the successful treatment of their OSA and sleep issues cannot be achieved without the insomnia being addressed. DrLullaby offers convenient and cutting edge treatment options whereby, in collaboration with me, together we can give these patients the highest level of care to better ensure successful treatment outcomes and to help our patients be better rested and more healthy. These patients are grateful that their overall quality of life can be improved. The referral process is easy and documentation from their office is very efficiently done. A truly collaborative environment!


Adam Cilfu, MD

As an general internal medicine physician, I see many patients with insomnia. These patients range from healthy, young people whose sleep issues are their significant medical problem to older or chronically ill patients whose sleep disturbances worsen their underlying diseases, complicate disease management, and negatively affect their overall wellness. Many of my patients have had great success using CBT-I. This treatment has been especially beneficial in people who have used sleep promoting medications for years and have been able to come off these medications with therapy.


Babak Mokhlesi, M.D., M.Sc.

Non-pharmacological management of chronic insomnia through cognitive behavioral therapy has empowered many of my patients to take better control of their sleep, without having to rely on hypnotic medications or unproven over- the- counter substances. Moreover, by managing chronic insomnia in patients with sleep apnea, CPAP usage improves. My patients have experienced a measurable improvement in their quality of life by completing cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia.


Kenneth Lee, MD

As a dedicated sleep physician at the University of Chicago, I see a wide variety of sleep disorders from sleep apnea, narcolepsy as well as disrupted sleep and insomnia. Unfortunately, in these challenging times with the day-to-day stress of life, as well as living in times of a global pandemic, the number of people with insomnia has also been on the rise. In addition, there has been a sharp increase in the number of prescriptions for sleeping medications. However, sleeping pills can also cause issues with dependence, and eventual habituation – where the medication simply stops working as well as it had. Luckily, I have access to refer to one of the strongest treatments – cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). I often counsel patients that this can retrain the body and brain how to sleep again without the use of medication, and/or in the setting of weaning off medications that a patient has taken. Also, patients tend to have fairly rapid improvement of their sleep even after a couple weeks; in fact evidence demonstrates that CBT-I is as effective as a sleeping medication early on, and is better than a sleep pill long-term wise. I have had many patients that have been essentially cured of their insomnia and weaned off sleeping pills by engaging in CBT-I; without relapse of symptoms. And since sleep is such an important part of our life and overall mental and physical health, we see improvement of other symptoms, including headaches, high blood pressure, depression and anxiety.


Lisa M Vinci MD MS

I have several patients who I have referred over the years that were able to discontinue sleep medications after completing CBT-I with Dr. Medalie. They all reflected that the program changed their life and allowed them to manage their anxiety and insomnia more effectively.
