Passing the CDL/DOT Occupational Physical

COMMERCIAL DRIVERS AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

Certified DOT Medical Exam - All physicians on our staff are on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners list.
Certified DOT Medical Exam - All physicians on our staff are on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners list.
Certified medical exam, walk-ins welcome. Lowest fees around for a Certified DOT physical. Commercial truck parking available on-site.
The best advice I can give you is to take your  blood pressure once a month. High blood pressure seems to be the number one cause of a driver failing the DOT physical. It is called, "the silent killer", because very few people will have any symptoms. Buy your own blood pressure kit that fits your arm properly.  Have the pharmacy tech help you choose the right size. Take your meds as your doctor told you and if they make you feel bad call your doctor and have them change the medication to a different one.  Please do not just quit taking them. I want to answer a few of the questions that drivers ask me on a daily basis. Blood pressure must be kept BELOW 140/90.  I recommend that you purchase a blood pressure cuff and use it often.  I do not recommend the wrist or finger kit.  Buy the one that goes around the upper arm. Place your arm level with the nipple line and relax, don't be on the phone with dispatch!   If you want to lose weight fast, quit drinking soda pop. Do not drink diet soda as they think it might be causing strokes and pancreatic cancer.  Read the labels and make sure you multiply the number of servings per container times the grams of sugar.  You will be shocked.  Take good care of yourself.
