We specialize in reducing OSHA recordable injuries by keeping treatment in FIRST AID mode as much as possible, by helping with pre hire work such as pre placement physicals and drug testing, and return to work evaluations to prevent injuries from reoccurring. Learn more about how Ark-La-Tex reduces recordable injuries.

A DOT physical at Ark-La-Tex OccMed 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
  • Hearing aids
  • 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.

DNA tests performed for use in a court case, such as child support or immigration, require a legal chain of custody and testing in an accredited laboratory.

Chain of custody is everything that happens to a sample from collection to submission for testing. This process is followed to ensure integrity of the sample throughout the process. Once the results of the legal DNA test are provided, they may be used as evidence wherever needed. Whether they are used in a state, tribal, or federal court, or for an adoption or immigration through the Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS), the results may be viewed as valid and accurate when the chain of custody process has been followed.

Ark-La-Tex OccMed offers affordable and professional DNA Solutions.

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 he can recheck your pressure later on or the following day
  • Reduce your caffeine, nicotine, sugar, and salt consumption

Feel free to drop by Ark-La-Tex OccMed any time during office hours for a walk-in DOT exam. If you’re on a tight schedule and want to make sure there’s a spot open, call our team in advance to book an appointment for a DOT physical, a drug and alcohol test, or a regular adjustment.
