D.O.T. UPDATE

HealthQuest Medical Services, Inc

Frank Polanco, M.D., Medical Director

Due to recent changes in the Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) guidelines, any employee sent in for a D.O.T. medical exam having been treated or currently being treated for a chronic medical condition MUST provide medical records supporting treatment of that condition.

They may either have them sent to our facility ahead of the appointment time and/or hand-carry them when they arrive for their appointment.

Drivers with pre-existing medical conditions such as: diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, depression, etc. are strongly advised to make their appointment at least one month prior to expiration of their certificate.

Any condition documented, previous medical records MUST be obtained before releasing the D.O.T. card. Failure to obtain adequate documentation will result in non-certification per the D.O.T. guidelines.

Please contact us for scheduling or additional information at: 719-260-9797
