For a physical to be valid, it must be given by a certified DOT Physical provider. Fortunately, the doctors at our local AFC Urgent Care Center are all certified by the state to provide you with this physical today, with no appointment needed.

Assuming there are no issues with your examination, it generally takes about 30 minutes to complete. The total amount of time at your clinic depends on that day’s patient volume and acuity.
