Have Your DOT Physical Conducted by the Occupational Health Experts at NYCDocs

If you work in a position that is regulated by the Department of Transportation, you’ll need to be cleared for work by a medical professional. At NYCDocs, we specialize in occupational healthcare and offer a number of related services, including DOT physicals.

When Can I Come in for My Exam?

NYCDocs is open six days a week, both early in the morning and late at night. As we are a walk-in clinic, we never expect or require appointments or referrals for our services. This means that you can see a doctor for your DOT physical whenever it is most convenient for you, rather than deal with the hassle of rearranging your schedule to squeeze in an appointment.

What Can I Expect During My Dot Physical?

The purpose of a DOT physical is to verify that you are physically and mentally fit to operate a commercial vehicle and perform your job-related duties. At NYCDocs, your exam will be conducted by a board-certified physician. They will ask you questions about your general health and medical history, conduct a thorough physical exam, and run various tests. All of the information they collect will be used to determine whether or not you are capable of performing the duties of your position without compromising the safety of yourself or anyone else.

If your doctor determines you are fit to handle the demands of your Department of Transportation-regulated job, they will certify you, which will allow you to obtain your medical certificate.
