Jessica A. Riggs ,

MD, FCCP, ABIM Pulmonary and Internal Medicine
  • Sleep Medicine
  • Women's Sleep Disorders

Jessica A. Riggs, MD., is a Pulmonary, and Critical Care boarded physician, who recently has joined the Virginia Heart Sleep Program after completing an additional fellowship in Sleep Medicine.   She has a special interest in the management of sleep-disordered breathing, conditions of hypersomnolence, and the physiologic changes of sleep in women during pregnancy and with aging.

Most recently, Dr. Riggs spent several months on the front-line fighting COVID-19 in New York City intensive care units, a fight she feels fortunate she could help temper.

Dr. Riggs became interested in Sleep Medicine during her years in the ICU with the understanding that complex medical disorders were so delicately linked to sleep health and hygiene, and the ability to restore sleep health would have major effects on outcomes.  Today, as a Sleep specialist, her goal is to help her patients achieve their greatest physical potential, both day and night.

Dr. Riggs enjoys spending time playing soccer, running, and enjoying outdoor concerts with her family, yellow labrador, and friends.
