Dr. Stasha Gominack

Neurologist

After securing her Bachelor’s degree from a mid-size college in California, Dr. Gominak went to med school at the Baylor College of Medicine. She attained her license as an MD in 1983 before moving on to complete her Neurology residency at a Harvard affiliate, the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. She finished her residency in 1989 before moving into private practice in 1991. From 1991 to 2004, she was a practicing Neurologist in the San Francisco Bay area, specializing in general practice.

It was in 2004 that Dr. Gominak and her husband moved to Tyler, Texas where she opened a practice and began treating sleep disorders related to neurological illnesses. While working in Tyler in 2012, she published a very important medical analysis of the adverse effects on sleep due to a lack of exposure to the sun.

In her next major public article (2016), she wrote about the ongoing epidemic of poor sleep, which she was able to link to an intestinal microbiome. The article went on to describe a process, RightSleep®, which served to help patients normalize the way they sleep.

After spending 25 years as a practitioner dealing with neurological sleep disorders, she retired from her private practice to move into teaching. From 2016 to date, she has been teaching fellow clinicians about ways they can help patients improve their sleep habits and overall well-being. She also devotes some of her time as a private teacher where she coaches clinicians from both the medical field and the field of dentistry.
