Anchorage, AK (PressExposure) August 21, 2012 -- Primary Care Associates (PCA) is offering comprehensive medical exams to help ensure the well-being of local residents. Through these tests, PCA's professionals, who are known for providing superior Anchorage urgent care, aim to provide their patients with accurate diagnoses, preventive advice, and effective treatment plans for illnesses.
One of the comprehensive exams offered by PCA at their Anchorage walk in clinics is cardiac treadmill testing. This determines whether a person gets sufficient oxygen and blood flow to their heart during rigorous activity or physical exercise. This exam is usually done on patients who complain of chest pains and experience other symptoms of a heart problem. Cardiac treadmill testing is an effective tool for diagnosing heart disease.
PCA also conducts bone density testing at their Anchorage walk in clinics. This exam is performed to determine a patient's bone density and diagnose osteoporosis, a condition characterized by a decrease in bone mass. PCA also performs colposcopy, a procedure performed to examine the cervix and detect cervical cancer. PCA also conducts FAA, hearing, eye, and immigration exams.
