DOT Physicals/CDL Exams

As a walk-in clinic we offer routine DOT Physical exams for employees in need. The exam will cover:

  • Vision: For commercial drivers, we will test to make sure drivers have at least a 20/40 in both eyes and be able to distinguish various colors. 
  • Hearing: Employees will be tested for hearing with and without hearing aids, and to pass they must be able to hear a “forced” whisper. 
  • Blood Pressure / Pulse Rate: Our Hamden clinicians will check your employees blood pressure and pulse for any irregularities. 
  • Urinalysis: We’ll also perform a urinalysis to make sure there are no underlying medical conditions present. 


  • Physical Exam: It’s important for the worker to be able to perform their job. This portion will cover appearance, breathing and swallowing, vascular systems, limb weakness, and any other physical attribute that may provide limitations for a driver. 
  • Vaccinations: If any worker needs updated vaccinations, we can cover them.


Pre-Employment Physicals

During a work-related physical exam, a DOCS provider will check your overall health and look for possible symptoms of illness or chronic conditions that may keep you from performing the duties of your job. The tests your provider recommends will depend on the type of physical examination being conducted. You’ll review your medical health history and job information with your Hamden physican’s provider, if applicable. Your provider will usually check:

  • Drug Testing 
  • Immunizations
  • Wellness Exams
  • Lab Testing 
  • Physical Abilities Test (PATs) 
  • Review of Medical History 
  • Pulmonary & Respiratory Function Tests
  • Vision & Hearing Function Tests 
  • Strength Tests
