We offer Department of Transportation (DOT) Medical Examinations at both our offices. Dr Kanika Govil MD is a Certified Medical Examiner. DOT medical examiners are specially trained to understand the regulations and prevent drivers from being inappropriately disqualified.
What are DOT physicals?
Driving a commercial motor vehicle means long, hard hours on the road. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has updated the Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations to better reflect the physical demands drivers face and to help them be safer on the job. Federal law requires that drivers of commercial motor vehicles (DMVs) receive regular physical examinations, which are defined as the “Department of Transportation Medical Examinations,” also known as DOT physicals. The DOT physicals detect physical, mental, and emotional issues that can affect a driver’s ability to safely drive a commercial vehicle.
The physical exam will include:
Past or recent illnesses and injuries (including head and brain injuries)
High blood pressure
Muscular weakness or disease
Lung, kidney, liver, and nervous system health
Unfortunately, health insurances do not cover the DOT physicals. We charge a $85 fee, to be paid on the day of service. Also, at the time of your appointment please bring the needed form(s), driver’s license, previous certificate (if recent) and payment at time of visit.
