Proudly offering Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, and is currently the most common cancer affecting people worldwide.* Luckily, early detection of lung cancer can help treat the disease when it is most curable. That’s where we come in.

Our team at EPPA proudly takes initiative in the early detection of lung cancer with the first free-standing accredited lung cancer screening clinic in the Southwest. With our state-of-the-art equipment and experienced team of radiologists and pulmonary specialists, you can rest assured that your pulmonary health is in the best hands. We accept most insurance providers and are Medicare approved. Contact the Lung Cancer Screening Clinic today for more information.
