Do you require a certified Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exam? If you are paid to drive a vehicle that’s built for more than eight people—or if you own any vehicle that is built to accommodate more than 15 passengers—you need to receive a DOT physical at least once every two years. Thankfully, Affinity Urgent Care in Galveston, Texas, makes it simple to get a DOT physical exam when it works for your busy schedule. Unlike most primary care practices that close at 5 p.m. sharp, our immediate care center is open every day during extended hours, even on the weekends.
What Does a DOT Physical Exam Involve?
DOT exams are meant to help ensure safe roadways for everyone. They’re very similar to a standard annual physical, consisting of:
A review of personal medical history, such as past surgeries, what medications or supplements you’re currently taking, and any concerning symptoms you may be experiencing.
A brief physical exam, which will involve assessing vision, hearing, weight, blood pressure, reflexes, gait, posture, and other key health characteristics.
Urinalysis to check for signs of potential health concerns and whether additional testing is warranted.
Affinity Urgent Care is equipped with a digital X-ray machine, EKG machine, and lab, so our clinicians can efficiently perform many important diagnostic services on-site.

"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."
