Physicals and Drug Testing
Physicals may be conducted by any Physician or Physician's assistant, however some familiarity with the 719k form (or standard DOT physicals) is helpful. If selecting your own drug testing center, be sure to obtain only a 5 panel DOT test by a SAMSHA approved lab authorized by a physician.
