Employers may require that a physical examination be performed on potential employees to ensure their physical ability to perform the work to be done and that there are no health problems that could pose a potential problem or safety issue in the workplace.
We perform a thorough physical evaluation, including a comprehensive medical history, vision screen, dipstick urinalysis, blood pressure check and hands on physical examination. We also offer a weight-lifting screen for those employers who have a lifting requirement. We can further tailor the evaluation to any specific needs the employer may have.
DOT Driver Physicals: The Department of Transportation requires drivers of commercial motor vehicles to undergo a medical evaluation at least every 2 years and in some cases more frequently. We are certified by the National Registry of Commercial Medical Examiners to perform these DOT examinations, knowledgeable of the DOT medical requirements for drivers, and have all of the proper forms to keep you in compliance.
FAA Airman Physicals: Dr. Jones has completed the training required by the FAA and is a certified Airman Medical Examiner (AME). At this time he is able to perform Class 2 and Class 3 FAA physicals. Candidates will need to begin the medical clearance process by completing the appropriate pages in the Aerospace Medical Certification Subsystem (AMCS), and then call our office for an appointment.
Sports Physicals: Schools and colleges require medical evaluations of students prior to participation in may extracurricular activities. We provide these evaluations at a reasonable cost, using either the appropriate state-sanctioned forms or a form that may be specific to a certain school.
Return-To-Work Exams: Many employers require that an employee be evaluated by a physician and “cleared” to return to work following an illness, injury or other extended period of absence. Just as with the pre-placement exams, we can tailor these evaluations to meet the specific needs and requirements of the employer.
Fitness For Duty Exams: Some employers may require that an employee be evaluated by a physician and “cleared” to continue or return to specific job duties whenever the employee’s ability to perform those job duties are called into question for various reasons. In such case we will review the physical requirements of a specific job and determine whether or not the employee is able to safely perform those duties. Just as with our other examinations, we can tailor these evaluations to meet the specific needs and requirements of the employer.
