Don't wait to get the medical attention you need.

No Appointment Needed

For many jobs, getting a Department of Transportation (DOT) physical or even a pre-employment physical is mandatory. At American Family Care clinics, we make it easy and convenient. Employees can simply walk into one of our clinics seven days a week. We’re open early morning and late evening hours.

Certified Medical Examinations for Commercial Drivers 

As mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, our DOT physicals are performed by a Certified Medical Examiner (CME) following a strict process. Anyone who wants to operate an interstate or intrastate commercial motor vehicle must pass a DOT physical. We strongly recommend you bring a list of medications and any relevant cardiac or neurological medical records. This will help our CME take those health conditions into consideration. DOT physicals include: 

  • Checking your blood pressure
  • Examining your ears
  • Performing a vision test
  • Looking at your mouth and throat for breathing or swallowing problems
  • Performing a neurological exam 
  • Checking for spine deformities
  • Listening to your heart and lungs
  • Conducting urinalysis
  • Performing a hernia check
  • Pressing on your abdomen to check for abnormalities

Walk-In Pre-Employment Physicals 

Pre-employment physicals are an important tool for employers and employees alike. These complete physical exams ensure that new employees can tolerate the physical requirements of the job. They also serve to advise employees of possible undiagnosed health issues. Our pre-employment physicals include: 

  • Review of both occupational and medical history
  • Musculoskeletal examination
  • Evaluation of the respiratory system
  • Examination of head, ears, eyes, nose, and throat
  • Hearing and vision testing
  • Blood pressure check

Improving the health and safety of your workforce is at the top of your list. As a full-service occupational health provider, AFC takes the stress out of creating and running your occupational health program. One size does not fit all. You choose what services work best for your company. We don’t require a contract, so you get the flexibility to grow and change as your business does.
