HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital and Prevea Health now offer DOT medical exams at five locations throughout Oconto County: Oconto Falls, Suring, Gillett, Mountain and Lena.
A DOT medical exam is the evaluation required in order to operate a commercial vehicle in the United States. It is referred to as “medical fitness for duty” examination which ensures that each driver is capable and healthy enough to successfully complete the duties associated with commercial driving. DOT medical exams include vision, hearing, blood and urinalysis screenings, and are conducted by licensed medical examiners listed on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) National Registry.
“This is a convenient, local service for anyone needing to maintain or obtain their commercial driver’s license (CDL),” said Jennifer Gibbons, APNP, FNP-BC, who is one of four FMCSA-licensed medical examiners now seeing patients at HSHS St. Clare/Prevea Health locations throughout Oconto County. Others include: Janet Richlen, MPAS, PA-C; Clayton Keene, APNP, FNP-BC; and Erin Bancroft, APNP, FNP-C.
