Have you been searching in your area for “DOT physicals near me”? If so, then you might be wondering what kinds of healthcare providers can perform a DOT physical. We can help you here at Priority Urgent Care.
Most doctors are able to provide a DOT (Department of Transportation) physical, but the doctor must be familiar with the guidelines of the examination, and the doctor must be FMCSA certified. Not all doctors are FMCSA certified. Some are certified and would be able to provide a DOT physical, but not necessarily as quickly as you might like.
For instance, if the doctor isn’t available for a week or so, you’d have to schedule a visit for then. This isn’t convenient for people who require a DOT physical for work, like with a new job. For these people, it can be much more convenient to have a DOT physical done at an urgent care clinic like Priority Urgent Care.
Some employers might reimburse employees for the cost of a DOT physical, so we recommend you look into this. Some insurance companies might cover the cost of a DOT physical, while others won’t. You can check with your insurance company, or you can simply ask our staff here at Priority Urgent Care! We work with most major insurers, so if we work with yours, we can check to see if they will cover your DOT physical with us. Get in touch with us and we’ll look into it for you.
Some urgent care centers will offer DOT physicals, but not all. Again, the physicians need to have the appropriate certification. With our urgent care center, our physicians have the FMCSA certification, so we can provide DOT physicals.
If you are employed and you need a DOT physical for the job, then your employer will require that you see an FMCSA-certified healthcare provider like us. We will provide you with a physical that meets all of the FMCSA guidelines, as well as any additional guidelines your employer has.
With urgent care, you can actually have a DOT physical done on a walk-in basis. Usually, this means you can be in and out within an hour! Appointments are not necessary, so you won’t have to wait a week or more to see a physician like you would with your primary physician. It’s just so much more convenient to have your DOT physical done at an urgent care center.
Come to Priority Urgent Care if you need a DOT physical. We can look into whether your insurance provider will cover the cost, and we can provide the physical on a walk-in basis. An appointment is not necessary! If you’d prefer, you can contact us to book an appointment, or you can book with us online. We have directions over on our Locations page. We serve patients from Ellington CT, Unionville CT, East Haven CT, Cromwell CT, Oxford, CT and Newington, CT, and BEYOND!
We look forward to seeing you soon here at Priority Urgent Care!
