What should I expect during my DOT physical?
During a DOT physical, the doctor will check your vision, hearing, blood pressure, and overall physicality. They will also take a urine sample to check for medical issues that may prevent you from driving safely.
How to prepare for a DOT physical?
To prepare for a DOT physical, hydrate with water, avoid coffee and alcohol, get enough sleep, and take your medications as usual.
What should I bring to the appointment?
Before going to your exam, make sure to bring your driver’s license, list of medications you are taking, medical history, contact lenses or prescription glasses you use, or hearing aids, if you use them.
How often do I need a DOT physical exam?
A DOT physical exam is good for two years. If you have medical conditions, you may be asked to get a DOT physical more often.
Can I wear contact lenses or hearing aids during the DOT physical?
Yes. You can wear contact lenses or hearing aids during the DOT physical so the doctor can also check if your glasses, contacts, and hearing aid need to be updated.
Does my insurance cover this primary care service?
At Nao Medical, we accept most major insurance plans, but in order to know if your plan covers the test, we would need to run your insurance and this can only be done at the beginning of your visit. If you would like to know ahead of time, please call the number on the back of your insurance card so a representative may let you know which coronavirus test is covered by your insurance plan.

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.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

The doctor on staff was awesome. She was friendly and a genuine person. I wish more doctors had a personality and empathy like that.

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.

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.
