DOT Physicals Available Daily to Walk-In Patients From Waterford, MI
Commercial vehicle drivers play a critical role in transporting people, equipment, parts, and finished products from one place to another, but they can also pose a risk to others on the roads if they’re not fit to do their jobs. That’s why Michigan and other states require drivers of commercial vehicles to get DOT physicals periodically. During DOT physical exams, qualified medical practitioners conduct certain tests aimed at making sure commercial drivers have the ability to safely perform their transportation jobs for long hours.
However, just because it makes sense to require DOT physicals for these types of drivers doesn’t mean it’s always convenient for them to fulfill the requirement. That’s why Springfield Urgent Care offers DOT physicals to walk-in patients every day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday. We’re open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and our extended hours make it easier for commercial drivers to get their required exams on their own schedules. If you’re in the Waterford area and you need a DOT physical, you can head over to our White Lake urgent care location only a short drive away.
How to Prepare for Your DOT Physical
When you meet with one of the highly qualified medical practitioners at our walk-in clinic for a DOT physical, you’ll receive an overall evaluation of your physical health. This will include vision and hearing tests, so bring your glasses, contact lenses, and hearing aids with you if you wear them. The exam also includes checks of your blood pressure and heart rate.
