Pre-Exam Info Sheet
Thank you for choosing us to provide you with this DOT physical examination. Dr. Hodes and his staff want your experience to be as easy and stress-free as possible. Here are some recommendations that will assist both of us:
- The driver should bring his/her most recent medical card.
- Bring or wear any glasses/contacts if needed for the DISTANT vision test.
- Bring or wear any hearing aid if needed for the hearing test.
- DO NOT smoke at least 1 hour before the exam. (It may affect vision and blood pressure.)
- DO NOT drink caffeine at least 2 hours before the exam. (It may affect vision and blood pressure.)
- Drink some water before the exam. (You will be asked to provide a small urine specimen.)
- The driver will be brought to a private exam room where Dr. Hodes will review the medical history and perform some routine test (check eyes, ears, reflexes, etc…) Diabetic drivers MAY need to remove their shoes/socks. This will allow the doctor to perform a more thorough inspection by examining your skin for signs of circulatory problems.
- Depending on the results, the doctor will either discuss your options or present you with your medical exam long form and a spare copy.
- If a copy of the report needs to be sent to the employer or other health provider, please sign or provide the appropriate release.
- *NOTE: If you EVER had a heart attack (or procedure like angioplasty, stent or by-pass) in the past 100 years, you will need a letter of medical clearance signed by your cardiologist.
