What is a DOT Physical?
The DOT (Department of Transportation) requires regular physical exams to ensure that every commercial motor vehicle (CMV) that operates an automobile weighing as much as or greater than five tons is healthy and remains compliant with safety regulations. A DOT physical must be performed by a medical examiner that is certified by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The team at Naperville Internist offers this service to men and women. Your exam will include a vision and hearing check and other indicators of your total health, like blood pressure and any heart conditions. Contact Naperville Internist in Naperville, IL to schedule your DOT physical today.
What Does a DOT Physical Include?
A DOT physical administered by Dr. Marwaha at Naperville Internist starts with assessing your medical history and medications. After that, he will conduct several tests, including checking:
- Blood pressure
- Heart health
- Brain health
- Condition of the lungs
- Condition of the spine
Each patient should inform the doctor of all health conditions and new diagnoses. You will get a certificate that is valid for up to two years after you pass your physical. Patients who don't pass are eligible to apply for a medical exemption. Please bring visual or hearing aids, health records, prescription medications, and records of any recent lab results to your appointment.
Naperville Internist Reviews
Dr. Rachit Marwaha (or Junior to Dr. Rakesh Marwaha’s Senior) has been instrumental in helping me carve out the best version of myself. He does not allow you to end up in a devastating cycle of Rx’s, has a straight forward demeanor & can discuss important health concerns or answer questions with honesty & empathy. He listens. He will take the time if you need him to give it. Just be sure not to hesitate to make your appt as the times do get fully booked. The move to their new Naper facility was crucial- he and his father, as well as a handful of other health&medical pro’s now operate out of a large, renovated, stand-alone location very accessible from any surrounding suburb. Their online portal makes booking appts or viewing test results easy. I was a patient of Rakesh for years and he is a very tough act to follow as he’s always given the best care w/ fair pricing, and Rachit is carrying on these values. If person setting appt is rude just know that doesn’t carry over to the doctors!
Dr, Rachit Marwaha is a fantastic doctor. Over the past year I have gotten to know him well and I couldn’t be more confident in his skill and expertise in the area of Internal medicine. In addition to his superior knowledge, he has a wonderful bedside manner and you feel like you were respected and understood when you leave. Dr.Marwaha JR. adds so much to this practice. So lucky to have him as my doctor. Sincerely, Judy Lawlor
Dr. Rachit Marwaha saw me during my hospital observation stay, and I did my follow-up visit with him a week later, which was fine so I'm giving him a 5 star. During my follow-up visit, I left the office and remembered two questions pertaining to my results that I forgot to ask, so I called a day or two later and asked if I could speak with the doctor to get the answers to my two questions. I was told the doctor would call me the next day at 7:15p. On the afternoon of the day I was expecting Dr Rachit Marwaha's call, I received a call from the front-desk person informing me I needed to pay my co-pay for the call at 7:15p. I went on to explain to her that I merely needed to ask two questions concerning my test results that I forgot to ask during my visit. She asked me what were the questions, I told her, she then said I'll give the doctor the message and if he calls and wants to charge you, I'll let you know, I said okay, and never heard back from either.
