Dr. Gibson has been doing DOT physicals for since 2008 here at Marsing Chiropractic, and has been working out of his office since 2007. We try to make your DOT/CDL exam a relaxing and comfortable experience by making you the focus of our efforts during the exam.
Our office has added an Electronic DOT/CDL form program that shortens the amount of time and paperwork needed to be filled out for this exam. This will also help with follow up exams, because you will only need to update your information and put your signature at the bottom of the form. We understand that this DOT/CDL process can be difficult at times, and we seek to make this process as easy as possible.
For appointment times it is recommended that you make an appointment to be seen, because the whole time from start to finish is about 45 min. to 1 hour. Appointments days and times are as follow Monday, Tuesday, Friday are 9 to 5, Thursday 9-6:30 and Saturday is by appointment only. For those who are licensed in the state of Idaho as a CMV operator for you convenience there is a state DMV office next to our office with hours from 8:30 to 3:30.
