The knowledgeable staff at our La Marque, Texas, urgent care center offers a full complement of occupational health services, including DOT physical examinations and other employment physicals.

Who Needs a DOT Physical Exam?

DOT exams help ensure safe roadways for everyone. You’ll need to receive a DOT physical on a periodic basis (usually once every two years) if you:

  • Are paid to drive a vehicle that is built to carry more than eight people
  • Drive a vehicle for work or personal purposes that is built to carry more than 15 people
  • Drive any vehicle on the interstate with a gross combination weight rating of more than 10,000 pounds
  • Are transporting hazardous materials that require the vehicle to have a placard

DOT physical exams are relatively straightforward and consist of a brief review of medical history, a hands-on exam, and a urinalysis to check for signs of common health issues.

Be Prepared for the Road Ahead

Affinity Urgent Care is here to make DOT physical exams easy. Unlike traditional primary care centers that close at 5 p.m. sharp and aren’t open on the weekends, our urgent care center is open every day during extended hours to accommodate a variety of schedules.
