DOT/CMV Physicals

The commercial motor vehicle (CMV) physical, also known as a DOT physical, is a health examination required for individuals seeking to operate commercial vehicles. It ensures drivers meet the physical and medical standards set by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to ensure road safety. The exam typically consists of testing for urine, vision/hearing, blood pressure, and a basic physical exam. Drivers are expected to have their license available upon request.


Sports Physicals

A sports physical, also known as a pre-participation physical examination (PPE), typically involves a thorough assessment of your overall health and fitness to ensure it's safe for you to participate in sports. It usually includes:


1. **Medical History:** The clinician will ask about your personal and family medical history.

2. **Physical Examination:** A comprehensive physical examination, checking vital signs, vision, hearing, flexibility, and overall fitness.

3. **Review of Vaccinations:** Ensuring that immunizations are up-to-date.

4. **Discussing Past Injuries or Medical Conditions:** Addressing any previous injuries or ongoing medical conditions.

5. **Screening for Risk Factors:** Identifying potential risk factors that could affect your ability to participate in sports safely.


The purpose is to detect any potential issues that could pose a risk during physical activity and to ensure that you are in good health to engage in sports. If any concerns arise, the clinician may provide recommendations or restrictions.


Weight-loss Management

During a weight loss management consultation, you can expect the following:


1. **Health Assessment:** The healthcare clinician will assess your overall health, medical history, and any existing conditions that might impact weight loss.


2. **Body Measurements:** Your weight, height, body mass index (BMI), and sometimes body fat percentage may be measured to establish baseline data.


3. **Discussion of Goals:** You'll discuss your weight loss goals, lifestyle, and any challenges you may be facing.


4. **Nutritional Guidance:** A review of your current diet and recommendations for healthy eating habits and nutritional choices tailored to your needs.


5. **Physical Activity Recommendations:** Guidance on suitable exercise routines that align with your fitness level and goals.


6. **Behavioral Strategies:** Strategies to address emotional or behavioral factors influencing eating habits, helping you develop a sustainable and positive relationship with food.


7. **Medical Considerations:** Discussion of any medical interventions or medications that may aid in weight management, if applicable.


8. **Follow-Up Plan:** A plan for ongoing support and follow-up appointments to track progress and make adjustments as needed.
