About The Snoring Center

Craig Schwimmer, MD, MPH, FACS : Founder & Medical Director

Dallas and Houston, TX


Dr. Schwimmer is a Board Certified Otolaryngologist, more commonly called an Ear, Nose, and Throat or ENT doctor. You may also have heard the term ENT specialist. They specialize in the head, neck, and related areas. ENT services and procedures include snoring treatment, sleep apnea management, tonsillectomies, and treatment of nasal allergies.

Education

Dr. Schwimmer graduated from the Emory University School of Medicine in 1991. He completed his otolaryngology training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, studying under some of the leading clinicians and scientists in the field of snoring and sleep apnea. He has co-authored numerous articles on the subject, including pioneering work on the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea and gastroesophageal reflux. After six years of residency training, he practiced in Baltimore, Maryland, where he was also a member of the teaching faculty at Johns Hopkins University and actively involved in training otolaryngology residents.

Since 2001, he has practiced in Dallas, where he founded The Snoring Center.


Founding of The Snoring Center

We understand that snoring is more than just a nuisance. From lack of sleep, to high blood pressure, and relationship problems, it can have serious physical and psychological effects on the patient and those around them. We can help.

As an ENT doctor, Dr. Craig Schwimmer has taken care of Texans suffering from snoring and sleep apnea for over 20 years. Overwhelmingly, what he saw in his patients was a shared sense of frustration.

  • Frustrated with doctors who didn’t understand that “just snoring” was a real problem in their lives.
  • Tired of sleeping in separate bedrooms or feeling exhausted during the day.
  • Discouraged by the lack of treatment options that were available to them.

Armed with new minimally invasive treatments as well as inspired by the relief he was able to provide patients, Dr. Schwimmer set out to offer ENT services to specifically help those affected by snoring and sleep apnea. He created The Snoring Center.

Dr. Schwimmer based The Snoring Center’s unique approach upon a few simple beliefs:

  • You have the right to understand all your treatment options and choose those that are best for you.
  • Treatment options are only as good as a your willingness to tolerate them.
  • We do what makes the most sense for each individual patient.
  • Invasive surgical treatments do not have a high enough success rate to justify their risk, expense or pain.
  • If you suffer from chronic snoring or sleep apnea—or you share a bedroom with someone who does—we’re here to help. Schedule a free evaluation.

  • After A Week, I Could Already Feel Big Improvements

    “I’ve always had large tonsils, but recently they became a big problem for me. I had Laser Tonsillectomy to reduce the size of my tonsils, and the results are great. The procedure was not a big deal and over before I knew it. I went to a Mexican restaurant directly after my procedure and ate chips and tacos. And, after a week, I could already feel big improvements.”

  • I Was Way Past The Normal Age For A Tonsillectomy, And I Was Skeptical About The Laser Procedure

    “The Snoring Center has improved my quality of life. After numerous episodes of tonsillitis, I was searching for anything to help. I was way past the normal age for a tonsillectomy, and I was skeptical about the Laser Tonsillectomy procedure. However, Dr. Schwimmer and the entire staff at The Snoring Center were very nice and professional and made the entire process fast and relatively pain free. I experienced very little discomfort during the procedure and very minor pain afterwards. Within a few hours, I was eating normal food. The best part is that since the Laser Tonsillectomy procedure I have not had a single episode of tonsillitis or even a sore throat. Thank you Snoring Center!”

  • I Can Breathe Through My Nose For The First Time In 16 Years

    “My nasal allergies are so bad that it is debilitating. I love outdoor activities, but often I can’t partake or I pay the price. I heard about turbinate reduction at The Snoring Center and that it can help with nasal allergy symptoms. For me it has done much more than “help”, I can breathe through my nose for the first time in 16 years. This really is life changing. Thank you!”

  • The Entire Procedure Took Only About 10 Minutes. But, It Changed My Life

    “I have suffered all of my life from nasal allergies. I meet with clients all day and allergy season is awful. It is embarrassing to continually blow my nose and sniffle during meetings. Not to mention the expense of regular doctor’s visits and daily medication. I was happy to have Turbinate Reduction at The Snoring Center. The entire procedure took only about 10 minutes, but it changed my life. Thank you Snoring Center.”

    - Kelly F.

  • It Truly Was A Life-Changing Experience

    “Turbinate Reduction not only helped my allergies but also my sinus headaches. This changed my life from someone who has had allergies since I was five years old to someone who is allergy-free. I would like to thank Dr. Schwimmer for all he has done for me. It truly was a life-changing experience.”
