DOT Drug Collection Site

As part of our dedication to comprehensive patient care, Dr. Robert Hochfelder Chiropractic Clinic and DOT Exam Center offers DOT exams for commercial driver's licenses and physicals for drivers who don't require a CDL but who haul enough weight to require a DOT exam.

Quick and easy drug and alcohol testing. We have a variety of test methods, such as hair, blood, saliva, and urine.

A basic DOT exam does not include drug testing, but it can be performed at the same time as your regular exam if it's required by your company. Drug testing requires a separate test and is not included in the cost of a basic DOT exam.

We’ve seen lots of repetitive strain injuries in the drivers that have come through our clinic. On top of DOT exams for drivers, we also offer regular chiropractic services to help relieve pain in your back, neck, shoulders, hips, and legs.


Our Professional TEAM


Our team at Dr. Robert Hochfelder Chiropractic Clinic and DOT Exam Center is a certified medical examiner through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. They have been working with and examining drivers for years and understand how important it is that you pass your test. They also know how improved lifestyle choices and healthier habits can protect your livelihood, and we’ll be glad to discuss these options with you during your exam.

We are excited that you are considering our office for care.

DOT Physical Three Step Process

A DOT exam is a simple and hassle-free three-step process that involves taking your medical history, performing the exam, and filling out all the necessary paperwork.

Step One: Medical History

To provide an idea of your general health and family background, you'll be asked to fill out a brief one-page medical history detailing past illnesses, diseases that run in your family, and your overall health.

Step Two: The Exam

Once you’ve provided your medical history our team will review the information you’ve provided, go over any medical conditions you may have, and perform a basic urinalysis test. As part of the exam, we also:

  • Measure your height
  • Weigh you
  • Take your blood pressure and pulse
  • Test your range of motion
  • Examine your eyes and ears
  • Check your breathing

Step Three: Paperwork

The final step in the process is the paperwork. Once your medical history and exam are complete, the office will fill out all the necessary paperwork to process the exam results. When you leave the office, you'll get a copy of the exam to take with you when you get your CDL, and a second copy to give to your company. We’ll also keep a scanned copy of the exam in your file at the office. And after all the paperwork has been processed, you'll get your very own DOT medical card to keep with you at all times when you're driving.

Note: If you need a copy of the DOT exam faxed to your company, please have the fax number handy.

Preparing For Your DOT Physical

A DOT physical at Dr. Robert Hochfelder Chiropractic Clinic and DOT Exam Center only takes about 30 minutes. We accept cash, all major credit cards, and company checks. To prepare for the exam, compile all your medical records, put together a list of any medical conditions you’ve been diagnosed with, prepare a list of medications and the name of the prescribing doctor, and take note of any medical devices that you require.

On the day of the exam, you'll have to bring all of this with you. Here's a checklist of things you should bring (where applicable):

  • Photo identification

  • Medical records

  • List of medications, including strength and dosage, for both prescription and over-the counter drugs

  • Eye glasses or Hearing aids, if necessary

  • Copy of your most recent stress test
    (for heart conditions)

  • Copy of your latest sleep test result
    (for sleep apnea)

  • Contact information, including names, phone numbers, and fax numbers for all your doctors

Right before your exam: Make sure you drink a glass of water and come in with a full bladder, as you will have to provide a urine sample.

No White Coats

We understand that lots of people don't like doctors, hospitals, and medical exams and that anticipating your appointment may elevate your blood pressure. But we work with drivers all day, and understand how important it is for you to pass your DOT exam. To help prepare yourself for the appointment, here are things you can do in the days and weeks leading up to your exam:

  • Take your medication every day as prescribed and on schedule.
  • If you forget a dose, take it as soon as possible if that's what your doctor recommends.
  • Tell our team if you've recently missed a dose so that we can recheck your pressure later on or the following day.
  • Reduce your caffeine, nicotine, sugar, and salt consumption.
  • Remember, you won't actually find a single white coat in our clinic!
