Welcome to

Sleep and
Headache Solutions

At Sleep & Headache Solutions, Dr. Stopper and her team are passionate about our patients and their overall health and well being. We work closely with our patients’ primary care providers to achieve the best possible health outcomes for our mutual patients. We see patients throughout the High Country and surrounding areas (West Jefferson, Jefferson, Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, Wilkesboro, Lenoir, Hickory, and more!).

If you or a loved one snore loudly at night (or have other potential symptoms of sleep apnea), please have a sleep study done to rule out this potentially fatal condition. Please contact us to help guide you.


The road towards successful, lasting solutions for sleep apnea and snoring can have plenty of bumps along the way. Wherever you are in this process, Dr. Stopper and the rest of our team can lend a valuable helping hand. Are you feeling chronically fatigued with no clear reason? Have you been trying to use a CPAP machine without success? Are you unsure what steps to take after receiving the results from a sleep study? Pick the situation that fits best below to learn more.

What Our Patients Say


Because of its bulky size, most patients simply leave their CPAP at home whenever they travel, but this can be a big issue for those with sleep apnea who are constantly on the road. An oral appliance can easily fit into your pocket if needed, making it a seamless addition to anyone’s luggage.
