About urgent care for work clearance

A CDL physical is the medical exam required to obtain your commercial driver’s license. Also known as the DOT physical, the point of the physical exam is to determine your fitness to perform your job.
The demands of a commercial driving job can take a toll on your body and your health, so the Department of Transportation created a standardized test to keep you, and others on the road, safe.

About our urgent care service

With Nao Medical's urgent care, you can either walk in or make an appointment ahead of time. You can visit our urgent care or walk-in medical clinics near you during operating hours. We're open seven days a week and closed only if NYS declares an emergency.

FAQ

What are DOT/CDL physicals?

A DOT CDL physical is a health exam required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to check if a driver is physically, mentally, and emotionally fit to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV).

What should drivers do to prepare for CDL physicals?

CDL physical patients should avoid caffeinated drinks like coffee and soda, reduce salt and sugar intake, make a list of medications you take, bring eyeglasses or contact lenses if you use them, bring hearing aids if you use them, and provide the examiner with updated information about your medical history.

Who needs a CDL medical card?

You need a CDL medical card if you drive a CMV that transports hazardous materials, carries more than 8 or 15 passengers, or operate a vehicle with a gross weight of over 10,000lbs.

Do you have to pee in a cup for a CDL physical?

Yes. You have to pee in a cup for a CDL physical but only for screening the kidneys for possible medical issues. Drug testing a urine sample is not a requirement for a CDL physical exam.

Can I eat before a CDL physical?

It is recommended that you do not eat a big meal before a CDL physical exam, especially if you are a diabetic. A large meal may lead to abnormal urinalysis results.

What does a driver’s license physical exam cover?

The driver’s license physical exam covers a few routine tests. The DOT-certified physician wants to make sure that you are healthy enough to do the job of a commercial driver. That does not mean you need to be in the best shape of your life, but you will have to pass some tests. 

The CDL physical includes a test of your vision, and hearing, and also requires a urine sample. The physical exam also involves a medical review of your heart and blood pressure. Drug tests may be applicable upon request of the employer.

How do I pay for my CDL Physical?

Unfortunately, insurance does not cover your CDL physicals. However, we offer special pricing on our CDL medical exams. 

Come in for your test, and any vision and hearing help you might need and it will only cost you $85. High-quality care at an affordable price is what we believe at Nao Medical. There will be an additional $10 charge for federal reporting.

At Nao Medical, our DOT medical examiner will perform a DOT physical exam and give you the medical examiner certification for the following: 

  • New Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) for truck drivers driving trucks and school bus drivers (Article 19A)
  • NYC taxi and limousine drivers (NYC TLC Certificate)
  • Renewal of existing NYS Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

Are urgent care centers open after hours?

Yes. Most of our urgent care centers are open after hours, making health care more accessible for all residents in NYC.

Should I make an appointment for urgent care?

Not necessarily. Most urgent cares accept walk-in patients. But if you want shorter wait times, you can book an appointment through phone or online.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.
