What To Bring to your DOT Physical
If you have information that needs to be reviewed by Dr. Bantock in order to pass your DOT physical exam such as results from your diabetes specialist, cardiologist, primary care physician, eye doctor, sleep doctor, neurologist, and Skilled Performance Examination please bring them with you. Please bring a list of your current medications as well. This will prevent delays in receiving your medical card that day.
Please avoid drinking coffee, smoking, and stressful situations prior to your visit as it may unnecessarily raise your blood pressure and affect the results of your exam.
If everything is clear, you will receive your DOT medical card or certificate at the office. If you have further questions please feel free to contact Dr. Bantock or visit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s website.
