The Village Sleep Lab provides state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment of sleep disorders in a caring environment in order to improve the quality of life of the community that we serve.
The center also provides educational opportunities for patients, support groups, physicians, health providers, and the community to increase awareness of sleep disorders and their diagnosis and management.
Goals & Objectives
The Village Sleep Lab strives to provide the highest quality medical care. We have a sleep center that is fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine; we have a medical director who is Board Certified in Sleep Medicine, and we have a technical director and polysomnography technologists who are registered by the American Association of Sleep Technologists.
We believe that health care providers should take the time to listen intently to what patients say about the nature of their problems as well as their expectations for diagnosis and treatment. This process helps to create effective communication and teamwork between patient and provider.
The staff of the Village Sleep Lab actively participates in community activities and provides up-to-date knowledge to the public about sleep disorders and their crucial interaction with cardiac, pulmonary, psychiatric, endocrine, and neurological diseases.

He has served on the local Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society and the American Lung Association.
Dr. Albino states: 'Serving others has always been a privilege that gives me great satisfaction, and sleep medicine is unique as it can make a tremendous impact on patients' lives and that of their bed partners. Medicine is a deep commitment that I live up to every day. In my practice, I continually strive to be up-to-date and to provide the highest quality medical care. My goal - and I ask it of my staff as well - is to always listen to our patients. It is by careful listening that I actually make a diagnosis, and then I treat the patient by keeping their goals in mind. If we skip this all important step of listening, nothing else can make up for it.'
