Visit Our Ashland Clinic for Certified CDL / DOT Physical Examinations

Department of Transportation and Commercial Driver’s License Physical Examinations in Ashland Kentucky: The National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry) is a new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) program. It requires all medical examiners (MEs) who wish to perform physical examinations for interstate commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to be trained and certified in FMCSA physical qualification standards.

Medical examiners who have completed the training and successfully passed the test are included in an online directory on the National Registry website.

Beginning May 21, 2014:
All drivers must use a Certified Medical Examiner for their DOT/CDL physical and medical certificate. Dr. Dillon has already met these federal requirements and is a Certified Medical Examiner.

At our office, your exam will be through, quick and efficient, getting you back on your way. Upon passing the exam, you will receive your certificate at that time.
