DOT Medical Exam and Commercial Motor Vehicle Certification

Dr. Josh Slomkowski is a certified medical examiner through the Department of Transportation. Hometown Spine & Sport is proud to offer this service to drivers who need a CDL certificate. A DOT physical is valid for up to 24 months. The medical examiner may also issue a medical examiner’s certificate for less than 24 months to monitor certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.

If you need a CDL certificate, please give our office a call to schedule an appointment. Once you are scheduled, we ask that you can show up 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to fill out the necessary paperwork prior to your examination.

During the examination, the doctor will ask you various health related questions as well as performing various medical and orthopedic testing that includes a vision acuity test and a urinalysis test. Our office does not perform drug testing. If your employer requires a drug test, you must do so at an outside facility. Otherwise, our office can validate all other necessary measures to obtain a full and complete DOT medical examination.
