What Medical Screenings are Offered?
We offer a wide range of medical screenings at our Lewisville, TX office for people in all stages of life. With these screenings, we can help you understand your overall health, create treatment plans as necessary, and monitor future progress. Some of the more common screenings we offer include:
- Cholesterol: During this screening, your finger will be poked with a small needle to produce a tiny drop of blood to measure your levels. Your cholesterol should be checked every 4 – 6 years.
- TB (tuberculosis) testing: A tuberculin skin test (TST) is used to determine your diagnosis. During this test, a fluid called tuberculin is carefully injected into the forearm. The patient must return within 2 – 3 days to have a medical professional evaluate their reaction.
- Pulmonary function: During this test, the amount of air that is inhaled and exhaled is measured, as well as how efficiently oxygen is transferred to your blood to help identify lung disease, the cause of irregular breathing, and shortness of breath.
- Pre-employment screenings: Pre-employment screenings make sure a job applicant can safely perform the jobs they apply for and are an important part of workforce safety. There are several types of pre-employment services, and depending on your industry, you may use just one type or all of them.
Depending on the outcome of these screenings, we will schedule follow-up visits to help you monitor any conditions and maintain your overall health.
