DOT Physical Exams Available at Our Walk-In Clinics in michigan
Springfield Urgent Care is committed to providing convenient, high-quality health care, including many types of physical exams, to residents of Michigan. Our services include DOT physicals, which are required by the state Department of Transportation for many of its employees and drivers of commercial motor vehicles. Unlike a lot of other urgent care clinics, we offer these physicals on a walk-in basis—no appointment needed—because all of our health care providers are DOT-certified to conduct the required exam. Our clinic is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 7 a.m. until 9 p.m Saturday and Sunday, allowing our patients to receive medical services at hours when many other providers are closed.
What to Expect During Your DOT Physical at Our Urgent Care Clinic
Generally speaking, DOT physicals are conducted to identify any issues that may affect employees’ ability to safely perform their transportation jobs for long hours. The exam will include vision and hearing tests, blood pressure and heart rate checks, and an evaluation of your overall physical health. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, you’ll want to bring them with you for use during the exam.
When you walk in the door at Springfield Urgent Care, you’ll be greeted by a friendly staff member and enjoy a short wait in our reception area, where you can help yourself to free beverages and snacks. Then you’ll meet with a board-certified physician or certified physician’s assistant who will conduct the physical assessment.
We welcome walk-ins for DOT physicals, but you can also take advantage of our convenient online check-in service to reserve your spot in line before you arrive. For more information about our DOT physicals and the other occupational health services we provide, contact Springfield Urgent Care today.
