A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical examination must be conducted by a licensed "medical examiner" listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry. A DOT physical exam is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner may also issue a medical examiner's certificate for less than 24 months when it is desirable to monitor a condition, such as high blood pressure.
Dr Ferry also is a certified medical examiner for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Please make an appointment. The physical takes about 1 hour. Below are instructions to make this as stress- free as possible.
1. Bring verification of driver's ID and if applicable waivers/exemptions.
2. Bring any medical history records from your physician.
3. Bring list of all medications, over-the-counter, herbal remedies, diet and/or nutritional supplements, with frequency and dosages prescribed. NOTE: Be sure to take meds as prescribed.
4. Refrain from caffeine, sugar, and salty foods or drinks well before exam.
5. Bring records of any further additional test results. i.e. 90 days of sleep apnea (CPAP), pertinent other doctor's records, etc.
6. Being prepared helps to stay calm, cool, and collected.
