What Is a DOT Physical Exam, Exactly?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires DOT examinations for individuals who:
Are paid to operate a vehicle that’s built to carry more than eight people
Drive any vehicle that’s built to carry more than 15 people
Operate a vehicle on an interstate that weighs more than 10,000 pounds
Operate a vehicle carrying a hazardous material that requires a special placard
As is the case with most other physicals, a DOT physical exam begins with a review of the patient’s medical history, followed by an assessment of important health characteristics like:
Gait and posture
A urinalysis is also completed to check urine for abnormal levels of proteins, sugar, and other irregularities that could point to potential medical problems. In the event that a patient’s physical indicates the need for further examination, our physicians may request a completed clearance letter to continue the DOT physical.
Affinity Urgent Care is proud to be a part of Pass My Physical Network (PMP).

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
"Facility was very clean. Very short wait. The doctor and x-ray tech were great!!"
