Our Medical Exams

  • Truck Driver (D.O.T) A DOT physical exam is the evaluation required in order to operate a commercial vehicle. It is referred to as a “medical fitness for duty” examination, which ensures that each driver is capable and healthy enough to successfully complete the duties associated with commercial driving. The driver must be medically examined and certified in accordance with Section 391.43 of the FMCSRs.

    Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations define Medical Examiner as a person who is licensed, certified and/or registered in accordance with applicable State laws and regulations to perform physical examinations. The term includes but is not limited to doctors of medicine, doctors of osteopathy, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses and doctors of chiropractic.

  • Sports Physical What Is a Sports Physical? In the sports medicine field, the sports physical exam is known as a preparticipation physical examination(PPE). The exam helps determine whether it’s safe for you to participate in a particular sport. Most states actually require that kids and teens have a sports physical before they can start a new sport or begin a new competitive season. But even if a PPE isn’t required, doctors still highly recommend getting one. The two main parts to a sports physical are the medical history and the physical exam.

    Medical History This part of the exam includes questions about: serious illnesses among other family members illnesses that you had when you were younger or may have now, such as asthma, diabetes, or epilepsy previous hospitalizations or surgeries allergies (to insect bites, for example) past injuries (including concussions, sprains, or bone fractures) whether you’ve ever passed out, felt dizzy, had chest pain, or had trouble breathing during exercise any medications that you are on (including over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements, and prescription medications)

    The medical history questions are usually on a form that you can bring home, so ask your parents to help you fill in the answers. If possible, ask both parents about family medical history. Looking at patterns of illness in your family is a very good indicator of any potential conditions you may have. Most sports medicine doctors believe the medical history is the most important part of the sports physical exam, so take time to answer the questions carefully. It’s unlikely that any health conditions you have will prevent you from playing sports completely.

  • Immigration Medicals The medical examination will include a medical history, physical examination, chest X-ray and blood tests for syphilis. The physical examination will include at a minimum: examination of the eyes, ears, nose and throat, extremities, heart, lungs, abdomen, lymph nodes, skin and external genitalia.

    What is the medical examination? A physical examination, medical examination, or clinical examination(more popularly known as a check-up) is the process by which a medical professional investigates the body of a patient for signs of disease. What is included in the cost for Immigration Medical Examination? The cost of the immigration medical exam includes the test for syphilis, skin test for tuberculosis, and a thorough physical exam. If you need immunizations or a chest x-ray, there will be additional charges. How long is the immigration medical exam good for?

    Starting June 1, 2014, USCIS will limit the validity period for all Forms I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record, to one year from the date of submission to USCIS. Applicants must also submit Form I-693 to USCIS within one year of the immigration medical examination. What is meant by civil surgeon? A Civil surgeon is a doctor, selected by the USCIS to conduct medical examinations of aliens in the United States who are applying for adjustment of status to permanent residence, or who are required by the USCIS to have a medical examination.

  • Schools What does a back-to-school physical consist of?

    The physician will listen to the child’s heart and lungs, do a head-to-toe physical exam, look for any signs of common childhood diseases and assess any personal or emotional needs of the child. Yearly exams are key to tracking a child’s progress on the height and weight growth chart, as well. With childhood obesity becoming such a large program, physicians will pay extra attention to children on the higher end of the weight chart.

    Once a child has hit school age, he or she typically only needs boosters of the vaccines they received in infancy and toddlerhood (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, measles, rubella, mumps and varicella) prior to entering preschool or kindergarten. At age 11 or 12, they’ll again need boosters for most of these vaccines, as well as the HPV and/or meningitis vaccines. Lee also recommends children get their yearly influenza shot, usually available in mid- to late fall.
