DOT Drug & Alcohol Collection Site

As part of our dedication to comprehensive patient care, Gill Family Chiropractic offers DOT exams for commercial driver's licenses and physicals for drivers who don't require a CDL but who haul enough weight to require a DOT exam.

A basic DOT exam does not include drug and alcohol testing, but it can be performed at the same time as your regular exam if it's required by your company. Drug and alcohol testing requires a separate test and is not included in the cost of a basic DOT exam.

To make things as convenient for you as possible, our DOT exams are appointment-free, and walk-ins are always welcome. However, you can also schedule an appointment to guarantee availability at a specific time.

Enrollment Assistance for the Random Drug & Alcohol testing program for both owner operations and employers.

DOT Physical Three Step Process

A DOT exam is a simple and hassle-free three-step process that involves taking your medical history, performing the exam, and filling out all the necessary paperwork.

Step One: Medical History

To provide an idea of your general health and family background, you'll be asked to fill out a brief one-page medical history detailing past illnesses, diseases that run in your family, and your overall health.

Step Two: The Exam

Once you've provided your medical history our team will review the information you've provided, go over any medical conditions you may have, and perform a basic urinalysis test.

As part of the exam, we'll also:

  • Measure your height
  • Weigh you
  • Take your blood pressure and pulse
  • Test your range of motion
  • Examine your eyes and ears
  • Check your breathing
  • Other system organ functions

Step Three: Paperwork

The final step in the process is the paperwork. Once your medical history and exam are complete, the office will fill out all the necessary paperwork to process the exam results. When you leave the office you'll get a copy of the exam to take with you. We'll also keep a scanned copy of the exam in your file at the office. After all of the paperwork has been completed, you'll get your DOT medical certificate and a wallet card to keep with you at all times.

Note: If you need a copy of the DOT exam faxed to your company, please have the fax number handy.

  • NO White Coats!

    We understand that lots of people don't like doctors, hospitals, and medical exams and that anticipating your appointment may elevate your blood pressure. But we work with drivers all day, and understand how important it is for you to pass your DOT exam. To help prepare yourself for the appointment, here are things you can do in the days and weeks leading up to your exam:

    • Take your medication every day as prescribed and on schedule.
    • If you forget a dose, take it as soon as possible if that's what your doctor recommends.
    • Tell our team if you've recently missed a dose so that we can recheck your pressure later on or the following day.
    • Reduce your caffeine, nicotine, sugar, and salt consumption.
    • Remember, you won't actually find a single white coat in our clinic!
