Erlanger ExpressCare proudly offers Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals at its immediate care center in Ooltewah, Tennessee. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to undergo these examinations every two years to ensure that they’re physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy enough to hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL). During a DOT physical, one of our certified medical examiners (CMEs) will speak with you about your medical history, check your vitals, and assess your eyes, ears, mouth, throat, heart, lungs, spine, nervous system, extremities, and general appearance. If you pass the exam, we’ll electronically report your results to the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME) and issue you a copy of your DOT medical card.
