What is a DOT physical?

The Department of Transportation requires a physical examination for men and women who drive commercially. Dr. George is licensed to conduct DOT physicals, and his staff helps you file all the necessary paperwork.

Your DOT physical is designed to ensure you are in the best health to perform the job. Kenneth Gahry, PA will check your height, weight, and blood pressure, and sends your bloodwork to the lab. He’ll evaluate your health with a full physical and discuss your medical and family history.

Some employers require a urine test. Birmingham Royal Oak Medical Group is fully equipped to take care of this additional requirement, so you don’t have to go elsewhere for testing.

What is a FAA Pilot exam?

The Federal Aviation Administration mandates that all licensed pilots and certain crew members pass a medical exam in order to receive a pilot’s license. Dr. George is one of a handful of authorized FAA examiners in the area.

To become licensed to fly, he’ll conduct a thorough physical exam to evaluate your general health and also check:

  • Cognition
  • Reflexes
  • Equilibrium
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Neurological health
