What is a DOT Physical?
Driving and operating commercial vehicles requires regular medical examinations to ensure your physical health is in compliance with DOT (Department of Transportation) safety guidelines. At HEALOR Primary Care, our experienced team of doctors is certified by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) to provide DOT physicals for CMV (commercial motor vehicle) drivers. If you're in Las Vegas, NV, and need a DOT physical, call us today to schedule an appointment.
What is included in a DOT physical?
During your DOT physical, one of our qualified physicians will talk to you about your medical history, ask you about any medications you're taking, and do a routine series of tests, including:
- Cardiovascular (heart) health
- Blood pressure
- Heart rate (pulse)
- Abdomen (stomach)
- Lungs and breathing
- Spine health
- Neurological health
You'll be required by the DOT to tell the doctor examining you about any recent diagnoses or any new health conditions. When you've passed your DOT physical exam, you'll receive a certificate that is valid for up to two years. You can apply for a medical exemption if you do not pass, and your doctor can give you more information and guidance about this process.
