AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach DOT Physicals

DOT Physicals

We take care of you because we want to keep you safe. Each time you get on the road, you are responsible for your safety, as well as the safety of all the people who share the road with you. A DOT physical confirms that you are healthy enough to perform your demanding job and keep the roads safe.

Why Choose AFC for Your DOT Physical?

For professional drivers, particularly truck and bus drivers, to obtain or maintain a commercial driving license, they must periodically receive a DOT physical. These exams are required by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to ensure nothing will negatively impact their driving performance.

Every two years, you need to visit a qualified examiner, a doctor, physician’s assistant, or nurse practitioner and complete your DOT physical.

AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach handles countless DOT physicals every year, and we know how to get them done efficiently so you can get the necessary paperwork submitted on time. Best of all, you don’t even need an appointment – just stop right in whenever it’s time for your next exam.

What Do We Look for During Transportation Physicals?

A typical DOT physical begins with a review of your medical history and the medications you take regularly. It will also include:

  • Blood pressure and pulse check
  • Vision test
  • Hearing test
  • Check for spine deformities
  • Examination of mouth and throat for problems breathing or swallowing
  • Examination of coordination and reflexes
  • Listening to your heart and lungs
  • Abdominal check for abnormalities
  • Hernia check
  • Urinalysis for indications of underlying medical conditions

FAQs ABOUT GETTING A DOT PHYSICAL AT AFC

How long will the DOT physical take?

AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach offers some of the lowest wait times around, so you should be in and out in an hour. Wait times are usually less than fifteen minutes, and the exam takes about thirty minutes.

Is a DOT physical uncomfortable?

A DOT physical is non-invasive and poses no serious health or medical risks. The AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach provider may ask questions about your health that make you uncomfortable, and you will undergo a hernia test that requires the doctor to place their hands on your pelvis.

What happens after my DOT physical?

After your exam, the AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach provider will do one of the following:

  • If you pass all parts of the exam, you will get a two-year certificate
  • If it is determined that you need periodic medical monitoring, you will get a certificate that lasts for a shorter period (three, six, twelve months)
  • If you do not pass the exam, you will not receive a certificate

What happens if my physical reveals I have a medical problem?

If your physical shows a medical issue, your AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach provider will complete your paperwork and, if possible, provide treatment on the spot. Otherwise, follow-up care will be recommended with your primary care doctor or specialist.
