As of May 12, 2014, CDL or DOT physicals can only be done by providers who have completed training and testing to be a Certified Medical Examiner (CME). Gonstead, Stangl and Arkowski Chiropractic and Massage Therapy clinics have certified providers. New rules are stricter and exams will be more intensive than in the past, so prepare to undress for your exam and for more questioning.
CME’s are responsible for determining medical fitness for duty, not diagnosing and treating medical conditions. National criteria are in place for who can and cannot drive. If you are disqualified at one facility for a CDL physical, you will not be able to go elsewhere and become certified.
Please read the following and print out any applicable forms.
DOT Medical Examination Report - To save time, print and fill out (Page 1 ONLY). Bring it with you to your exam. (Paper forms are available at our office)
DOT Medical Exam SPECIALIST letters/forms - When applicable, these must be filled out PRIOR TO your exam and BROUGHT WITH YOU to your exam or your will NOT be able to be certified on the day of your exam.
