Our Services

Physical examination

All Physical Examinations are designed to meet OSHA, Department of Transportation (DOT) or individual company requirements. Every exam includes the following standard procedures which may be modified to meet specific occupational needs:


A Medical & Occupational History questionnaire is filled out to provide our physicians with important information about past medical problems, previous work exposures and any current symptoms an employee may be experiencing. Family medical history is also included to help identify health problems which may be genetically inherited.


A" hands on" physical examination is conducted in a private examining room by a licensed medical physician or licensed physician's assistant. The examiner looks at basic body functions to determine current health status and reviews any current or past medical problems the employee may have.


The physician will inform the employee of any serious findings which need immediate attention and refer the employee to his or her private physician for further diagnosis or treatment. All medical information that does not directly impact the employee's ability to perform essential job functions is considered strictly confidential.

Vital Measurements

Height, weight, blood pressure and pulse are measured and recorded with each physical exam. Abnormal vital signs can be indicative of potential physical problems including hypertension, heart disease and thyroid disease.


Vision Testing

Vision testing is required to determine an employee's ability to safely perform regular job duties. A technician specially trained in the use of a Titmus vision screening instrument performs the exam. The exam tests the following: 


1.Visual Acuity 2.Depth Perception 3.Peripheral Vision  


Basic Urinalysis

Forced Expired Volume at 1 second (FEV-1} Forced Vital Capacity (FVC)
