Preparing for your DOT physical:

  • Bring the name and contact information for your primary doctor and any specialists you see regularly.

  • Bring a list of all medications you take (both prescription and over-the-counter), along with the dose and frequency.

  • For heart conditions, bring a copy of your latest stress test, if applicable.

  • For sleep apnea, bring a recent compliance report from your sleep machine equipment.

  • Also, remember to drink plenty of water the day of your exam – you will have a urine test at your exam visit. Limit or eliminate caffeine before your exam to avoid blood pressure being elevated.
