ROWLETT, Texas –Jan. 14, 2016— Lake Pointe Sleep Center was recently granted reaccreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) for a period of five years beginning Jan. 16, 2016. The accreditation represents sleep centers that provide the highest quality of patient care. The sleep center was also granted accreditation for home sleep apnea testing for five years by the AASM.
