At True Care MD, we are committed to providing services that will positively impact our community. Therefore, we have medical providers that are certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to perform physical examinations (also known as DOT Physicals) and make sure that the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers in our community are healthy enough to safely perform their demanding job and keep our roads safe.
It is mandated by Federal Guidelines that all commercial drivers pass the DOT Physical Exam. Although this exam has strict procedures and it may seem overwhelming at times, we provide excellent service to make your experience obtaining this exam an easy one.

The medical examiner will discuss any significant findings with you, give you recommendations as needed and answer any questions you may have regarding the process.
