Medical Certificates for Commercial Drivers may be granted only by a DOT-Certified Medical Examiner. Dr. Gumaer is a Nationally Certified Medical Examiner and is listed in the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (#9495614159). He knows how to navigate through the new rules to help you pass the physical examination and keep you in the driver’s seat. He has performed DOT Physical Examinations since 1995 and is affiliated with Team CME, a nationwide network of Certified Medical Examiners, making it easy to find providers who perform CDL Physicals and exams for school bus drivers.
The DOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires Medical Examiners to obtain documentation from a driver’s treating physician concerning any past medical condition, surgical procedure, prescribed medication, or any other condition that may interfere with the ability to safely operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV).
If you had a medical treatment, or surgical procedure for any condition that may adversely affect your ability to safely operate a CMV, or are currently taking a prescription medication, we recommend that you call our office in advance of your appointment. After review of your medical history, we will provide you with a letter to present to your treating physician to enlist his support in your medical certification. Your doctor’s reasoning for the employment of any medication, along with his written assessment of your condition will be necessary before a medical certificate may be granted.
If you carry a waiver for Vision, Diabetes, or a Skill Performance Evaluation Certification (SPE), you must present a copy of the waiver, along with proof of compliance from the Medical Review Officer or other supervising physician.
If you are as healthy as a horse, we look forward to verifying and documenting your excellent health status and granting the two-year maximum medical certificate!
