DOT physicals can only be performed by nationally certified practitioners. We are one of the only Centers certified by the Department of Transportation in the area.
We offer $85 DOT Physical Examinations to commercial drivers and trucking companies in Cincinnati, Newtown, and Anderson, OH.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires commercial truck drivers to satisfy specific criteria related to their physical health in order to operate large vehicles. Any business that employs drivers for commercial purposes has to ensure their drivers pass a DOT physical. Unless cleared by a DOT examiner, they are not permitted to drive. DOT physicals give managers a peace of mind that the drivers are healthy enough to operate commercial vehicles.
Dr. Nuesse is licensed to carry out DOT physicals and will evaluate your employees based on DOT requirements. The results of the tests, as issued by Dr. Matthew Nuesse, are considered valid by the DOT. For companies that have a large number of workers who have to take a DOT physical, you can arrange to have Dr. Matthew Nuesse come to your business location and perform the tests.
The process itself is quite simple. The exams don't take much time and it only takes around an hour or so for the results to be issued. The truck drivers who clear the tests are then issued a DOT medical card. Upon receiving this card, the drivers are deemed fit to drive large commercial vehicles, provided they have a valid driver's license. We offer walk-in physicals and can also come to your location if necessary.
The employer also has the legal right to ask for further testing. The standard tests that are part of a DOT exam include:
- Blood Pressure
Although drug and alcohol testing are not always part of a DOT physical, the company may wish to test for those, as well.
