In the state of Maryland, the driver of any commercial vehicle is required to obtain a medical examiner’s certificate, commonly known as a DOT card. At Quality First Urgent Care, we know commercial drivers are on tight schedules which is why we have extended hours and accept walk-in patients for a DOT physical at our health care clinic. If it is necessary for you to maintain your DOT card, our health care professionals can provide a DOT physical examination.
According to the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA), DOT physicals will consist of the following requirements:
- Medical history review, including pre-existing conditions
- Vision test
- Hearing test
- Record of blood pressure and pulse
- Findings from medical lab testings
- Standard physical examination
During your physical exam, your healthcare provider will ask about the use of alcohol, drugs, and other dietary supplements in order to provide the highest quality of care.
