Springfield Urgent Care is pleased to provide drivers with convenient opportunities to satisfy this requirement so they don’t lose time on the job. We offer DOT physicals and other occupational health services to walk-in patients from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week at our White Lake urgent care center, only a short drive from Pontiac.

Our wait times are short, and we don’t require appointments. However, you may use our convenient online check-in service to book a time for your visit if you wish.

What’s Involved in a DOT Physical?

This type of exam is performed by a board-certified doctor or a certified medical practitioner who evaluates patients to determine whether there are any issues that might affect their ability to safely perform their transportation jobs for long hours. Generally, a DOT physical includes:

  • Vision and hearing tests
  • Blood pressure and heart rate checks
  • A medical assessment of the patient’s overall health

If you wear glasses, contact lenses, or a hearing aid on the job, you’ll want to bring those with you for your DOT physical.
