What is Included in a DOT Physical Examination in Milwaukee?

A DOT physical exam includes the following:

    • Medical History

      During a DOT physical, the driver will provide medical, surgical history and medication history.
 
    • Vitals Testing and Physical Examination

      Vitals includes pulse, height, weight, and blood pressure. The FMCSA also requires urinalysis, which looks at the protein, blood, and sugar in a urine sample to rule out underlying medical problems.
 
  • Vision Testing

    In addition to more general testing, the FMSCA requires vision testing to ensure drivers are meeting the standard of at least 20/40 vision acuity in each eye with or without correction (glasses or contacts) and at least 70° field of vision in horizontal meridian measured in each eye (the area of visibility for each eye’s line of sight).
    • Hearing Testing

      This is often tested through a whisper test, a test in which the examiner will record the distance from the driver at which a forced whispered voice can be heard. Hearing can also be evaluated through an audiometry test. An audiometry test is a way to measure the ability to hear sounds at different frequencies to determine if the driver has experienced hearing loss.
 
    • Physical Examination

      A physical examination is required to examine the various body systems, including the skin, heart, lungs, neurological system, and more.
 
  • Drug Screen

    Although it is not part of the DOT physical exam, the DOT also requires a drug screen which can usually be completed at the same time as the physical examination.
 

Patient Testimonial

star star star star star
Urgent Care Services Milwaukee“I visited RemedyNow and Dr. Danish Siddiqui because I was experiencing both stress incontinence when laughing and coughing and urge incontinence when my bladder would spasm when fuller resulting in loss of control and frequent changes of undergarments or having to wear liners constantly. I heard about Emsella through an online personal shopper/blogger, Nichole_Ontrend, a very relatable British expatriate living in Dubai who has access to the newest and best and was being treated with Emsella. My curiosity was piqued, and I went online to learn what the procedure was for. I learned that the Emsella chair involves sitting for 30″ while electromagnetic energy contracts your pelvic floor muscles approximately 12,000 times. Over time, the pelvic floor strengthens resulting in less leakage. I found Dr. Siddiqui online and was pleased to see he was also a board certified OB/GYN. After a consultation, I was able to begin immediately with a six treatment course over three weeks. I began to see large improvements with less leakage after about three treatments and was so pleased with the results that I followed with optional maintenance treatments once monthly. I have currently completed my 5th out of 6 monthly maintenance treatments. Emsella has made a huge difference for me personally. I no longer wear liners and am experiencing no leakage with coughing or laughing. I may still have some urgency to urinate especially in the morning but far less often, and even then I am able to hold my bladder until I reach a bathroom with no leakage. I definitely recommend Emsella and Dr. Danish Siddiqui”
