Yearly Physical Pulmonary Function Test
Acute Care / Chronic Illness  

Memorial Clinical Associates is a full-service primary care health practice serving the Memorial, Katy and Spring Branch Communities. We offer quality care in a variety of medical fields.

We provide in-depth consultations, evaluations and treatment plans with patients. The following are services we provide for pulmonary health care:




Yearly Physical

A regular physical examination is extremely important. Our philosophy is that this close connection between physician and patient creates a relationship that helps the patient through difficult times. Our clinical staff offers physicals for those individuals who require annual physicals that are required for a job, school or over-seas trave.

It is vital for the physician to do a medical history evaluation so that we can get to know not only the present problem, but also what has occurred before. Past records must be reviewed and detailed questions asked, not only about symptoms but habits.

The actual exam is thorough and done by our experienced physicians so that the proper laboratory or diagnostic imaging examinations are done or ordered. Our physicals involve test of the eyes, ears, nose, throat, heart (EKG), blood and other studies of the body to determine the presence or absence of physical problems. Prior to leaving our clinic the physician will counsel and address specific health issues or questions you may have and discuss the courses of action or changes that might be needed. If the physician is to help a patient the most, an intimate and thorough knowledge of the patient is a must.

If you are a Texan Plus member Yearly Physicals are at NO COST.

Pulmonary Function Test

Our nursing staff, under the direction of our physicians, can provide our patients with a Pulmonary Function Test or PFT. Pulmonary function tests (PFT) measure how efficiently an individual’s lungs perform their essential tasks. At MCA we use several techniques to determine the amount of air the lungs can hold, how well the lungs move air into and out of the body and how effectively the lungs exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide. This allows our physicians to accurately diagnose the nature and severity of problems affecting an individual’s ability to breathe.

The test is performed to diagnose certain types of lung disease (especially asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema), determine the cause for shortness of breath, or to measure whether occupational exposure to contaminants affects lung function. It can also be used after the administration of medications to assess their effect, and to measure progress in disease treatment. The physician may also order additional tests like a chest x-ray or stress test to rule out other conditions.

If you believe that you may have lung disease, problem’s breathing, wheezing, abnormal phlegm production, a heavy cough and chest pain call Memorial Clinical Associates to set up an appointment with our physicians.

Acute Care / Chronic Illness

At Memorial Clinical Associates we treat both acute and chronic illnesses. An acute illness, like appendicitis or pneumonia, may be serious, but can be diagnosed, treated, and resolved in most cases.

A chronic illness is different. Receiving the diagnosis is only the beginning. You may see numerous specialists, who may need to do several tests before deciding on a final diagnosis. At MCA our caring staff is dedicated to consulting with each patient and answering any questions or worries that come up during and after the process. If you suffer or care for someone with a chronic illness, you're not alone. Common chronic illnesses such as arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), Lou Gehrig's Disease, and kidney failure affect nearly every American family. More and more families are coping with the changes and strains that come with long-term illness.

Be your own advocate by learning as much as you can about the condition. The more information you have, the more in control you will feel. Memorial Clinical Associates is a highly respected team of experienced physicians that can be your valuable resource of information and advice.
