Dr. Zorn believes that sleep medicine is an active, growing and wonderfully fascinating field.

Dr. Zorn enjoys the one-on-one interaction with his patients.

Dr. Zorn is Board Certified in Sleep Medicine. He is also Board Certified in Pulmonary Medicine and Internal Medicine. His interests in sleep medicine date back to 1975, when he was a Pulmonary Fellow at Yale University. When Dr. Colin Sullivan made the breakthrough discovery of CPAP for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, Dr. Zorn realized an increased need for sleep medicine expertise in the central Iowa area. He founded The Iowa Sleep Disorders Center in West Des Moines. Since then, the center has grown and is a nationally accredited sleep center by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Dr. Zorn received his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin. He subsequently completed his internal medicine residency and fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic. As a Pulmonary Fellow at Yale University Medical School, he received a NIH research fellowship award.

He has been awarded memberships in the Delta Chi Sigma Honorary Science and Mathematics Fraternity, the American College of Chest Physicians, the American College of Physicians, the American Thoracic Society, and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Dr. Zorn has published articles in the journals of Geriatrics, American Review of Respiratory Disease, Thorax, Reticuloendothelial Society, Lung, Clinical Research, and the CRC Handbook Series of Clinical Laboratory Science.

Dr. Zorn enjoys lecturing, both locally and nationally. He has delivered lectures to the Des Moines and West Des Moines School Districts on “late start times for high school students". He is involved in sleep disorder lectures to the Des Moines University medical students. College students at Grinnell College have listened to his lectures on insufficient sleep. Dr. Zorn has presented programs for many civic, business and community groups on a variety of sleep issues, including shift work sleep disorders, sleep disorders in women, pain sensitivity and fragmented sleep, obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia.

Dr. Zorn has been interviewed by Channel 5 TV News regarding verbal fire alarms for sleepy children. The Des Moines Register has interviewed him concerning sleep and daylight saving time.
