We perform DOT physicals in our office 7 days a week, and we are now offering on-site exams at your location. On-site examinations can significantly decrease the complications in scheduling these physicals at a remote location. If we can do the physicals on your site, we can also save you a significant amount of money.
A DOT physical exam is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner may also issue a medical examiner’s certificate for less than 24 months when it is desirable to monitor a condition, such as high blood pressure and Diabetes.
Please feel free to contact my office. I hope that our facility can help to service your needs for your employee’s DOT physicals. I am sure that we can save you a significant amount of money.
Certifications are provided on same day, and information is entered on the website as well.

How Often is a DOT Physical Required?
CDL drivers are required to take the DOT physical exam every two years. If you have a condition that needs monitoring such as high blood pressure, or any other medical condition that jeopardizes your safety on the road, you may be required to get a physical more often. Upon successful completion of the physical, the physician in charge will give you a certificate that you can show your employer.
