Who is Sip2Sleep?

Dr. Ruchir P. Patel is the Founder and Medical Director of The Insomnia and Sleep Institute of Arizona, who has been voted “Top Doc” yearly in the region since 2016—including receiving the most votes in Sleep Medicine from 2019, 2020, and 2022 and has been awarded Castle Connolly Top Doctor in Sleep Medicine nationally every year since 2019. Dr. Ruchir P. Patel established The Insomnia and Sleep Institute to set the standard for sleep medicine, and the clinic is recognized as the Face of Sleep Medicine by Phoenix Magazine.

Today, it is known as the leading comprehensive sleep center in the region and dedicates to improving the intersection of sleep and health. Dr. Ruchir P. Patel was recognized for Physician Excellence by Inspire and the center joined the Inspire Excellence Program in 2021 and then in October 2022 he was elected to be one of four Care Teams of Excellence in the world by Inspire. Inspire, makers of implant devices used to treat obstructive sleep apnea, tracks all implant outcomes and only awards Inspire Excellence membership to sleep specialists who produce the best outcomes for patients, and the Care Team of Excellence Award was delivered to Dr. Patel based upon review of his outcomes with Inspire patients alongside with ENT compared to 800+ centers in the USA.

As the top sleep medicine physician in the Phoenix Valley area, Dr. Ruchir P. Patel is a graduate of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, which he followed with a residency in Internal Medicine at Detroit’s Henry Ford Hospital.

After struggling with his own insomnia for three years, Dr. Ruchir P. Patel pursued formal fellowship training in Sleep Disorder Medicine at Chicago’s Rush University Medical Center. He underwent numerous comprehensive training in 80+ sleep disorders, both in children and adults, during his fellowship training while working with multiple departments and experts including neurologists, pulmonologists, and clinical psychologists. Dr. Ruchir P. Patel was also trained in pediatric sleep medicine by one of the first pediatric sleep physicians, Dr. Stephen Sheldon.

Dr. Ruchir P. Patel is triple board certified in Internal Medicine, Sleep Medicine, and Obesity Medicine and also fellowship trained in transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy at Duke University Medical Center in 2020 and earned International Certification in Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation from Maastrict University in Nederland in 2022.

It was his passion for helping individuals suffering with chronic insomnia to begin the search for treatment options that did not include prescription sleep aids secondary to their negative long-term side effects. He has always practiced with the goal of helping patients wean and discontinue these sleep aids. Yet, after reading a clinical study in 2017 on the effects of montmorency tart cherry juice as a potential natural treatment for insomnia, he began his search to create an all natural sleep aid without melatonin after many of his patients in his own clinic demonstrated positive results using the tart cherry juice to improve their insomnia. It was then the genesis of Sip2Sleep® truly began. Before launching Sip2Sleep® in late 2022, many friends, family, and patients that were given samples to try the product for honest feedback and to Dr. Patel's own surprise but also skepticism, over 80% of individuals reported significant improvements in their sleep with more frequent dream recollection and waking less fatigued. As a result of this high percentage of individuals reporting benefit and his skepticism that the number could be so high he hired People Science to design and undertake a clinical trial to study the effects of Sip2Sleep® in random participants that had moderate to severe chronic insomnia. The results of the study supported the same anecdotal findings he had discovered — greater than 80% of participants in the clinical trial reported improvements in sleep quality, next day alertness, and reduction in next day anxiety when they took Sip2Sleep®. With Sip2Sleep®, Dr. Patel, aims to allow individuals with acute or chronic insomnia have the option to take an all natural sleep aid with only two natural ingredients that are clinically proven to improve quality of sleep, daytime alertness, and mood.
