DOT Physical

In order to receive a valid CDL medical card, commercial drivers are required to use a certified medical examiner (CME) for DOT physicals. Pioneer Medical Center has an occupational health specialist certified on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, so you can get in to see us and get back on the road.

You must pass all of the federal DOT physical requirements before a medical card can be provided. Avoid delays or additional expense by coming prepared. Here's a checklist to help you prepare for your DOT physical.

If you are uncertain if you will qualify for a DOT card, you may want to visit your primary provider or specialist before your recertification.

You can find your Insulin-Treated Diabetes Mellitus Assessment Form here.

Keep Your MEC Current

Commercial drivers must maintain a valid Medical Examiner’s Certificate (MEC) on their Montana driving record. If you don’t maintain a current MEC with the Motor Vehicle Division, your commercial driver license will be downgraded to a noncommercial license.

You must provide a copy of your new MEC to the Montana Motor Vehicle Division prior to the expiration of your current certificate. Do not count on your medical provider or employer to submit your MEC. Please mail, email, or fax a legible copy of your MEC to the Montana Motor Vehicle Division.

To obtain a medical certificate you must be examined by an FAA-designated Aviation Medical Examiner (AME). At PMC, Dr. Ace Walker is a FAA designated Aviation Medical Examiner for all three classes of flight licenses.

As the airman you should follow these steps to apply for and obtain your medical certificate:

  • Use MedXPress, to complete the initial portion of the application.
  • Schedule an appointment with the AME. You can do this by either calling the Clinic at 406-932-4199 or scheduling an appointment online by clicking here.

At your scheduled appointment, the AME will complete your medical examination and the remainder of the FAA application form. If you meet the required medical standards, the AME will issue you a medical certificate.

A Primary Care Provider, or Primary Care Physician (PCP) is what most people just call “their doctor.” A PCP is a generalist, not a specialist. A PCP is usually board certified in either internal medicine or family medicine, though pediatricians and gynecologists can also be considered PCPs. At PMC, we have two board certified family physicians and a certified family nurse practitioner.


He or she can take care of your preventive care, diagnose diseases and illnesses, and help you find the right specialists when you need them. They’ll help you navigate the health care system so you can concentrate on your health. And, as in the example above, they can work with any specialists you have and put all the pieces together to get the “big picture” of your health.


If you see one doctor for your heart problems (a cardiologist) and another for a rash on your skin (a dermatologist), these two doctors don’t know about each other. But what if your rash has something to do with your heart problems? Without a PCP looking at “the big picture,” this connection may never be noticed.


Selecting a Primary Care Provider at PMC is very simple.

  1. When you fill out the new patient registration form you will have the option of selecting a primary care provider from one of our highly qualified providers
  2. If you are an established patient that would like to move to another provider, simply call or go online to set up an appointment to establish care with the new provider of your choice
