     about the

      physical

Dr. Cathrine Post is an experienced ​chiropractor, but decided to devote ​her practice to offering D.O.T. ​physicals after her C.D.L.-licensed ​husband expressed frustration in ​finding a health practitioner who ​recognizes the unique challenges

of being a commercial driver.


Dr. Post earned her Doctorate of Chiropractic ​degree from Parker College in Dallas  in 2002, ​earned her Bachelor of Arts from Rowan ​University, and is a federally-registered Certified ​Medical Examiner with the United States ​Department of Transportation.

"My business is focused on performing D.O.T. exams in a ​timely, efficient manner that meets all requirements. I ​focus every day on working with drivers to pass their ​physical. Above all else, I treat them with the utmost ​respect and professionalism."

ABOUT THE physical

           home

What should I bring to my physical?

Please bring the following items - and be aware of ​these protocols - for your physical:

  • Driver's license
  • Drink water for the sugar and protein specimen ​test 
  • A current list of all medications
  • Eyeglasses or contacts
  • Hearing aids if needed   
  • CPAP users: Please bring a readout for the last ​30 days
  • A copy of your most recent stress test if you ​have a heart condition.

Is there a chance I might not pass my ​physical? What happens if I don't?

Some drivers are concerned that they will not pass their D.O.T. physical exam ​because they have a condition such as diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, ​or other ailment. The fact is that most health problems will not prevent you from ​passing a D.O.T. physical, as long as you are treating the issue. If you are concerned ​that you may not pass the D.O.T. physical, bring it to Dr. Post's attention. She will do ​everything possible to help, and give you the tools and guidance to address any ​health concerns you may have.  She knows the unique demands placed on truckers ​and the importance of being in compliance with all regulations.

What should I expect at my visit?

   1. Check in - You will complete some brief paperwork. Download and print the ​Medical Examination Report form to get started before your appointment, if ​possible. If not, Dr. Post will have a copy for you.

   2. Examination - Dr. Post will perform an examination, which will include: a ​review of your health history, simple physical exams, which include exams to ​check vision, hearing, blood pressure, weight and urine sample (NOT a drug test).

   3. Dr. Post will complete the rest of the medical form as appropriate so that you ​are in compliance. You will also be provided a copy of the form.

   4. Make payment, unless other arrangements have been made in advance.

Who needs a D.O.T. physical exam?

Federal law requires most C.D.L. drivers to receive regular physicals. Medical ​examiners are trained to understand the requirements for a D.O.T. medical card. ​A D.O.T. medical card is valid for two years, but can be issued only for one year ​for drivers with certain health issues. Those who meet the following criteria are ​required to undergo physicals to obtain their card:

  • Anyone operating a commercial vehicle with a combined gross vehicle ​weight of 10,000 pounds. 
  • Anyone operating a commercial vehicle and receiving compensation for ​transporting 9-15 passengers. 
  • Anyone transporting more than 15 people – regardless of whether they ​receive compensation or not. 
  • Anyone transporting hazardous materials requiring placarding.
