At Desert Cities Chiropractic, the needs of the patient are always put first, so if you're looking for a DOT physical in Victorville, you’ve come to the right place.

Services Provided

  • DOT driver exams: As part of our dedication to comprehensive patient care, Desert Cities Chiropractic offers DOT exams for commercial driver’s licenses and physicals for drivers who don’t require a CDL but who haul enough weight to require a DOT exam.
  • DOT drug and alcohol testing: A basic DOT exam does not include drug and alcohol testing, but it can be performed at the same time as your regular exam if it’s required by your company. Drug and alcohol testing requires a separate test and is not included in the cost of a basic DOT exam.
  • Pain management: We’ve seen lots of repetitive strain injuries in the drivers that have come through our clinic. On top of DOT exams for drivers, we also offer regular chiropractic services to help relieve pain in your back, neck, shoulders, hips, and legs.

Meet the Doctor

Dr. Athanasia Angelopoulos at Desert Cities Chiropractic is a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration certified medical examiner. She has been working with and examining drivers for years and understands how important it is that you pass your test. She also knows how improved lifestyle choices and healthier habits can protect your livelihood, and she’ll be glad to discuss these options with you during your exam.

Dr. Athanasia Angelopoulos performs the exam and presents you with your medical certificate and forms immediately. She also submits the forms directly to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration electronically after your exam.


What to Expect During Your DOT Exam

A DOT exam is a simple and hassle-free three-step process that involves taking your medical history, performing the exam, and filling out all the necessary paperwork.

Step One: Medical History

To provide an idea of your general health and family background, you'll be asked to fill out a brief one-page medical history detailing past illnesses, diseases that run in your family, and your overall health.

Step Two: The Exam

Once you’ve provided your medical history our team will review the information you’ve provided, go over any medical conditions you may have, and perform a basic urinalysis test. As part of the exam, she’ll also:

  • Measure your height
  • Weigh you
  • Take your blood pressure and pulse
  • Test your range of motion
  • Examine your eyes and ears
  • Check your breathing

Step Three: Paperwork

The final step in the process is the paperwork. Once your medical history and exam are complete, the office will fill out all the necessary paperwork to process the exam results. When you leave the office, you'll get a copy of the exam to take with you when you get your CDL, and a second copy to give to your company. We’ll also keep a scanned copy of the exam in your file at the office. And after all the paperwork has been processed, you'll get your very own DOT medical card to keep with you at all times when you're driving.

Note: If you need a copy of the DOT exam faxed to your company, please have the fax number handy.

Tips on Managing Your Blood Pressure

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
  • Remember that you won’t actually find a single white coat in our clinic!

Feel free to call or visit Desert Cities Chiropractic any time for more information. 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. We look forward to hearing from you!
