Dr John Swieca has been the medical director of the Melbourne Sleep Disorders Centre since returning from a Sleep Disorders Fellowship at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles in 1994. In his clinical practice, he cares for patients with a range of sleep disorders. Dr Swieca’s clinical interests are broad, although he specialises in the management of complex multi-factorial sleep disorders. He is a principal investigator in a range of clinical research trials. Dr Swieca is open to a range of treatment strategies for sleep apnoea, insomnia, restless legs syndrome, parasomnias and narcolepsy.

Dr Juan Mulder, Sleep Physician


Dr Juan Mulder is a Consultant Respiratory and Sleep Medicine Physician. Juan undertook additional training in Intensive Care, to enable him to manage complex modes of invasive and non-invasive ventilation, as well as treating critically ill patients.

He has a particular interest in sleep disorders, especially complex disorders such as insomnia, parasomnia, narcolepsy, restless legs syndrome and sleep apnoea. He is also a firm believer in a multimodal approach to managing sleep disorders, given their frequently complex nature.

We have established the Geelong Sleep Disorders Centre, to offer the same broad range of sleep disorders care to patients in Geelong and the surrounding region, no matter how straightforward or complex the disorders may be. This may require multidisciplinary care, including collaboration with sleep psychologists, dental sleep medicine practitioners, ENT and bariatric surgeons, other specialist physicians and CPAP therapists. Often a broad approach is required, to give patients every chance to achieve a good night's sleep and improved daytime alertness and energy levels.
