Zika: The Basics of the Virus and How to Protect Against It

Zika outbreaks are currently happening in many countries and territories. While the mid-Atlantic is not currently experiencing any locally-acquired mosquito-borne cases, all of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey are in the native range of mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus. Additionally, Zika may be spread through any sexual contact with an infected person even if the person does not have symptoms at the time. Zika can also be spread from a pregnant woman to her fetus. It is important to take precautions to prevent mosquito bites and be aware of the risk of transmission through sexual and in utero contact.

Information about Department of Transportation (DOT) Physical Examinations

Patient First has provided Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals examinations for many years. To comply with federal regulations in effect as of May 21, 2014, we have designated specific Patient First examiners to perform DOT physical exams. All Patient First designated examiners are now Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) certified, have received extra training on DOT policies and procedures, and are exceptionally well qualified to ensure that client employees meet the requirements of Federal DOT regulations. And for your convenience, Patient First FMCSA certified providers are available to examine drivers on a walk-in, non-appointment basis.

FMCSA Certified Medical Examiner Schedules

It is important to check in advance to confirm that a certified medical examiner is available before sending a driver for an examination.
Patient First FMCSA certified medical examiners are scheduled to work at some, but not all, centers each month. Last minute schedule revisions, due to illness or other reasons, are possible. To avoid inconveniencing your employee, please click on the link below for centers that have certified medical examiners on duty during the current month. If you send an employee to a center at a time when a designated DOT examiner is not on duty, the employee will be shown the schedule and asked to return when a DOT examiner is on duty, or will be directed to another center where a qualified DOT examiner is available.
