DOT Physicals in Madison, WI

Did You Know?

  • In compliance with the DOT requirements, a DOT physical examination must be administered by a licensed medical examiner.
  • A DOT physical exam can be valid for up to 24 months, which depends on your health. Your particular medical examiner may need to issue a certificate for less than 2 years due to a medical condition such as high blood pressure or diabetes that may require continued screening in a shorter period of time.
  • Once you are found fit to drive a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), your medical examiner will provide a copy of your DOT physical exam results showing you passed the examination as well as a certificate.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR DOT EXAM

A DOT exam is a simple and hassle-free three-step process that involves taking your medical history, performing the exam, and filling out all the necessary paperwork.

STEP ONE: MEDICAL HISTORY

To provide an idea of your general health and family background, you'll be asked to fill out a brief one-page medical history detailing past illnesses, diseases that run in your family, and your overall health.

STEP TWO: THE EXAM

Once you’ve provided your medical history our team will review the information you’ve provided, go over any medical conditions you may have, and perform a basic urinalysis test. As part of the exam, he’ll also:

  • Measure your height
  • Weigh you
  • Take your blood pressure and pulse
  • Test your range of motion
  • Examine your eyes and ears
  • Check your breathing

STEP THREE: PAPERWORK

The final step in the process is the paperwork. Once your medical history and exam are complete, the office will fill out all the necessary paperwork to process the exam results. When you leave the office, you'll get a copy of the exam to take with you when you get your CDL, and a second copy to give to your company. We’ll also keep a scanned copy of the exam in your file at the office. And after all the paperwork has been processed, you'll get your very own DOT medical card to keep with you at all times when you're driving.

Note: If you need a copy of the DOT exam faxed to your company, please have the fax number handy.


PREPARING FOR YOUR PHYSICAL

A DOT physical at DOT Physical Doctors only takes about 30 minutes. We accept cash, all major credit cards, and company checks. To prepare for the exam, compile all your medical records, put together a list of any medical conditions you’ve been diagnosed with, prepare a list of medications and the name of the prescribing doctor, and take note of any medical devices that you require.

On the day of the exam, you'll have to bring all of this with you. Here's a checklist of things you should bring (where applicable):

  • Photo identification
  • Medical records
  • List of medications, including strength and dosage, for both prescription and over-the counter drugs
  • Eye glasses
  • Hearing aids
  • Copy of your most recent stress test (for heart conditions)
  • Copy of your latest sleep test result (for sleep apnea)
  • Contact information, including names, phone numbers, and fax numbers for all your doctors

Right before your exam: Make sure you drink a glass of water and come in with a full bladder, as you will have to provide a urine sample.


Physical Exams by Nationally-Registered Examiners

To comply with the Department of Transportation’s federal regulations, organizations must employ commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers who have passed a physical exam conducted by a qualified examiner.

As of May 21, 2014, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires that all FMCSA physical exams be conducted by a nationally-registered certified medical examiner.

DOT Physical Docs are nationally-registered providers of physicals for CMV drivers. We understand all the current requirements for DOT physicals, and we can ensure that your drivers are qualified physically and mentally to do their jobs.

In order to be listed as a nationally-registered medical examiner (ME) who can legally provide a DOT-compliant physical exam, MEs must pursue the appropriate training and pass a certification test.  Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs), Doctors of Medicine (MDs), and Doctors of Osteopathy (DOs) can all qualify.

When an ME is nationally-registered, it indicates that the physical exams they conduct adhere to and are consistent with the high standards of health and safety set forth by federal agencies.

As part of our comprehensive DOT services, DOT Physical Docs can provide a nationally-registered provider to administer any physical exam your organization needs to remain DOT-compliant.
