A medical physical is often a requirement for a variety of jobs. Any doctor can usually conduct the needed medical examination. However, if your job involves obtaining and maintaining a valid Commercial Driver’s License, you need a DOT Physical from a certified physician. At AFC Urgent Care West Chester, our doctors are trained and certified to administer DOT Physicals. While no appointment is ever needed to receive this physical, we do encourage you to call ahead to ensure we have a DOT Physical provider available. DOT Physicals are available at AFC Urgent Care West Chester Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM and on Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
You will receive a thorough medical exam for your CDL medical card. A DOT Physical requires blood work as well as a drug screening to pass. These tests and screenings can be processed onsite in our very own state of the art lab. In most cases, we can get you in and out with your test results and a completed DOT Physical in a single visit. There’s no need to visit another location for sample collection and testing.
Your DOT Physical exam will include:
Current rules from the U.S. Department of Transportation requires that you must pass this examination every two years to maintain a valid Commercial Driver’s license. This time may be shorter if you have a medical condition that requires regular monitoring. Regardless, if this is your first time applying for a CDL or if you are seeking to get it renewed, we can serve you here at AFC Urgent Care West Chester. When you pass your examination, you will leave with a laminated DOT Medical Card and a Medical Examination Report.
