What is a DOT Physical?
If you operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV), the federal Department of Transportation requires that you have a qualifying physical exam every 24 months to make sure that you can safely operate a vehicle weighing five tons or more. The physical must be carried out by a medical examiner certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). If you need a DOT physical, Dr. William Goldsmith is a certified medical examiner who offers this crucial service for men and women at Rockwall Rapid Care for $150. If you're close to Rockwall, TX, and need a DOT physical, call us today to schedule an appointment, and please fill out this form prior to arriving at our facility.
What Does a DOT Physical Include?
A DOT physical administered by Dr. Goldsmith at Rockwall Rapid Care starts with an assessment of your medical history and medications. After that, he will conduct a variety of tests, including checking:
- Blood pressure
- Heart health
- Brain health
- Condition of the lungs
- Condition of the spine
In addition to the physical itself, the DOT requires that you inform us of any new diagnoses or health conditions. If you pass the physical, you will receive a certificate that is valid for up to two years. However, if you do not pass, you may still be eligible to apply for a medical exemption.
Rockwall Rapid Care Reviews
Amazing seriously just go here! My normal urgent care (texas med.) Was closed due to short staffing. I had symptoms of a severe kidney infection. Oh the irony because I educated patients in kidney failure for a job. So I looked online and signed in to go to rapid care. Best decision I could have made. 20 min. Later I arrived with my kids in tow. You pull up press a button on the intercom and someone comes out. Just as I was speaking to the tech at the window my 7yo projectile vomited ,(this is my life). She was totally fine apparently just needed to puke. It was everywhere in my car. The tech was amazing. He got me a trash bag gloves cleaner, water, and even a towel for my daughter to put on her booster seat. We joked that maybe she should be seen to. After cleaning up my one child we we're brought in, I gave my sample etc the normal stuff. They treated my kidney infection with meds. And on my way I went. They are awesome go here
As a retired RN and new to Texas i was impressed by the efficiency and cost savings when i found myself needing quick and efficient care on a Saturday afternoon. I recommend giving this hidden gem a try if you’re caught on a weekend and don’t want to spend your day waiting in an overcrowded ER/ urgent care.
Fantastic place. Highly organized with a dedicated, professional, welcoming staff. I’ve never been here before today and this will be my new go-to when I need medical assistance in a hurry.
I took a good fall yesterday & needed to get some X-rays done. After calling Carenow with a 4 hr wait & Medpost no X-rays that day, I stumbled across this place. It had 5 star reviews too. I decided to go & the appt process was super easy, checking in was a breeze, ZERO WAIT TIME (huge perk), the rooms were high tech, clean, and awesome chairs. I was in & out with X-rays done in 30 min!! I am a huge fan now & I will be singing their praises as they are much deserved. Thank you to the staff for your fast & efficient work.
Needed a sports physical at the last minute and they came to the rescue!
