What is a DOT Physical?
The Department of Transportation (DOT) requires health exams for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operators driving vehicles that weigh five tons or more. These physical exams must be carried out by a medical examiner who is certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Dr. Alisha Detorres, Dr. Jessica West and their medical staff at Coastal Health are certified examiners currently offering DOT physicals in Port Angeles, WA. Your exam will include a check of your hearing and vision along with other indicators of your overall wellness, such as your blood pressure and heart health.

What Is Included in a DOT Physical?
Dr. Detorres and Dr. West will conduct a hearing and vision screening, check your blood pressure, pulse, and heart rate, and perform a series of general medical tests, including examinations of your skin, abdomen, lungs, extremities, spine, and neurological response, in different areas of the face and body. She will also conduct a urinalysis to screen for narcotics or any medical conditions that could affect your safety. As required by the DOT, it is important that you notify your physician of any known health conditions prior to your physical. A successful exam offers a certificate for up to two years of commercial motor vehicle operation. If you do not pass your exam, you may still be able to apply for a federal medical exemption.
