DOT Physicals at Med First Primary & Urgent Care

If you’re a professional truck or bus driver, the Department of Transportation requires you to get a DOT physical exam before you hit the road. At Med First, we specialize in DOT physicals and will help you get on the road, fast!

What’s the Purpose of a DOT Physical?

The DOT physical ensures you’re equipped to handle the physical and mental demands of operating a
commercial vehicle, and it gives you the green light to do so. If any of the following apply to you, you must get a DOT physical and carry a DOT medical certificate with you when operating a commercial vehicle.

You are paid to operate a motor vehicle that holds anywhere between nine to fifteen passengers.


You operate a commercial vehicle for interstate commerce purposes.


You drive a vehicle more than 75 miles from where you report to work.


You transport hazardous materials in certain quantities.


What to Expect During Your DOT Physical

When you visit Med First for a DOT physical, you’ll discuss your medical history in detail with your
healthcare provider. He or she will then complete a thorough physical exam and administer a urine test. If you’ve suffered from any of the following conditions, make sure to let your healthcare
provider know:

Epilepsy or Seizures

Brain injuries or any neurological disorders

Loss of hearing or impaired vision

Digestive problems or kidney disease

Psychiatric disorders

Paralysis or strokes
