Dr. Jeff Clayton drove commercial motor vehicles while he was going through school to become a chiropractor. Once he graduated he wanted to make sure drivers had a place to get their medical exams done without the long waits. Same day appointments are usually available. Dr. Clayton only charges $60 for the DOT physical exams.
What is a DOT Physical like?
You will need to fill out a brief health history form. Then Dr. Jeff Clayton will complete the DOT physical exam by going over your health history and checking the following things: eyes, ears, urinalysis (for protein, blood, and sugar), mouth, throat, heart, lungs, abdomen, vascular system, extremities, spinal conditions and neurological conditions.
What should I bring to the DOT Physical?
The easiest answer would be to bring any medical records for conditions you have. Bring a list of all current medications you are taking. Bring hearing aids and glasses if needed. Bring any waivers/exemptions you have. Be prepared to do a urinalysis (not a drug test).
