Three Ways For Drivers To Save On Their Next DOT Physical!

Business Card

1.  First thing first do it right the first time.  What I mean by that is that if you don’t know by now you must have your physical performed by a certified medical examiner.  Your doctor must be certified and listed in the National Registry of Certified Medical examiners or else your medical examiner’s certificate will be invalid and rejected by the DMV.  You will have to go see another doctor who is certified to retake the physical examination and yes, pay another fee.  I have seen many drivers in this predicament since the compliance date for seeing a certified doctor went into effect on May 21, 2014.  Please go to the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiner’s website for an examiner near you.  If he or she is listed on this official website then they are certified to perform DOT physicals.

2.  Google to find the best price.  What’s more important to you? Traveling a little farther and saving money or going to the nearest office.  Drivers are mobile by nature but you decide, and remember DOT physical exam prices are not regulated by the government or any private entity but are set by individual examiners or practices.  Prices can range from around 60 bucks or ? less to well over $100.00 – $150.00.  That’s a huge difference!  We think our current prices are very competitive and affordable at $65.00.  So look around and make sure you are getting what’s most important to you.  Just because someone says they have the lowest prices doesn’t mean it’s so.

3.  Get personalized care.  No one likes to be treated like a number.  Our price includes the entire physical including the required urine dipstick test and vision screen.  Beyond that, if you have medical issues and need to be referred to a specialist for further testing, that is between you and that other specialist or facility.  However, we do not charge you beyond the cost of the DOT physical exam itself or for follow up visits related to the condition at hand as long as you return in at least 45 days.  For example, If we find sugar in your urine dipstick test and you weren’t previously diagnosed or treated for diabetes, you will need to see your doctor to get worked up and treated.  If you come back to see us in 45 days or earlier and the problem is satisfactorily taken care of (new medications, lab work or testing performed etc.) we will update and complete your physical without any additional charges and issue the medical examiner’s certificate.  However, if you return after 45 days then you will need an entire new physical.

4.  OK, I know I said three.  But lastly, refreshments (coffee, tea, bottled water ) are complimentary.  We take that personalized care part pretty seriously.  Hope to see you soon for your next DOT physical!
