Department of Transportation Medical Requirements

Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, the U.S. Department of Transportation has implemented new rules and regulations that will be enforced. In order to be successful and efficient in your application for a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), there is certain information that we will need prior to your physical exam with a certified examiner.

Dr. Christopher D. Maxwell is our certified commercial motor vehicle examiner. If you have any of the following medical conditions, a form from your specialist or primary care provider must be completed. Please bring this form with you when you have your physical performed.

Cardiovascular Conditions

If you have had a heart attack (MI), stents, primary coronary intervention, such as angioplasty, or angina, you will need a consult from your cardiologist before Dr. Maxwell can perform your physical exam. Please click here for the Cardiology DOT Form. Please ask your cardiologist to complete this form and bring the completed form with you at the time of your visit.

Neurological Conditions

If you have had a stroke, seizure, traumatic brain injury, or TIA, you will need a consult from your neurologist before Dr. Maxwell can perform your physical exam.  Please click here for the Neurology DOT Form.  Please ask your neurologist to complete this form and bring the completed form with you at the time of your visit.

Primary Care Conditions

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, depression, sleep apnea, sleep disorder, or adult ADHD, you will need a consult from your primary care provider or specialist before Dr. Maxwell can perform your physical exam.  Please click here for the Primary Care DOT Form.  Please bring the completed form with you at the time of your visit.

Other Conditions

If you require correction to your vision, whether or not you routinely wear contacts, you must bring a pair of glasses with you to the exam.

If you wear hearing aids, you must bring them and extra batteries with you to the exam.

If you do not have the appropriate paperwork completed at the time of your appointment, we will need to reschedule your physical. You CANNOT receive your physical without the information detailed above per the new regulations from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment time. Payment is expected at time of service.  For your convenience, we accept cash, MasterCard, Visa, and/or personal checks for payment.  If for any reason you are unable to make your appointment, please contact us 24 hours before your appointment to re-schedule.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the billing department at 816-380-3582.
