Hedlund becomes Certified Medical Examiner
Jeffrey Hedlund, PA-C, is a registered medical examiner on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners. Mr. Hedlund has completed the required training and testing concerning the Federal physical qualifications and standards for truck and bus drivers and possesses the necessary knowledge and professional credentials to perform physical qualification examinations for commercial motor vehicle drivers in accordance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.
Effective May 21, 2014, all health care professionals who perform DOT physicals will be required to complete accredited certification training and pass an examination. Also, all drivers seeking DOT exams must be seen by a registered medical examiner. FMSCA is developing the National Registry program to improve highway safety and driver health by requiring that medical examiners be trained and certified so they can determine effectively whether a CMV driver’s medical fitness for duty meets FMCSA’s standards.

Our flexible scheduling and extended hours (Monday-Friday 8am-6pm and Saturdays 9am-12pm) help with busy schedules.
