The clinic provides following tests for the lungs:

Simple Spirometry - to detect obstruction or restriction to air flow.

Diffusion Capacity (DLCO) - assesses gas exchange ability of the lungs.

Body Plethysmography, (body box) -  checks the airway resistance and volume of lungs. It also provides earlier recognition of small airway disease, which allows earlier treatment.

Fit Testing - Under 1910.134, fit testing must be performed initially (before the employee is required to wear the respirator in the workplace) and must be repeated at least annually. Fit testing must also be conducted whenever respirator design or facial changes occur that could affect the proper fit of the respirator.

Adult and Pediatric patients are welcome, age 5 – 99 years old.

Our office hours are:  Mon. – Fri.:  8:30 AM to 2:30 PM


Orders (needed for all test) and patient demographics may be faxed to (254)213-4524

Orders may be written by a doctor, physician's assistant or nurse practitioner.
