At Emediate Cure we offer physicals for a variety of purposes. For children and teens, sports, camp, and school physicals are often required prior to participation. For adults, a physical may be a normal part of an annual checkup. At other times, a physical can help to determine whether an employment candidate is physically qualified to handle a particular job.
We at Emediate Cure offer the following types of physicals:
A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is a physical exam that is required for people who drive commercial vehicles. The point of a DOT physical is to make sure that people who are driving commercial motor vehicles are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires them for the safety of the public.
During your exam, we will review your medical history with you and ask a few questions about your current state of wellness. If any lab work is needed, we can do most common tests in our in-house laboratory and get results in 15 minutes or less. Remember to bring any forms or paperwork necessary, and we’ll take care of the rest.
