We've made some moves to streamline our service, once again! Dena Freeman Hollis is with us to greet you as you walk in. She is now in charge of all Urine Drug Screens. Walk in drug screens for all of the labs when you have received a barcode via email. We cover that on the following laboratories: Abott including eScreens; Alere; LabCorps and CLR. Quest will come under it's own bar code system. If you have received one of these, you can walk in, Mondy thru Friday and during the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. Or 1:00 p.m thru 4:30 p.m.

If you happen to be sitting in your car eating at a fast food place because the dining room is closed and see a truck driver walk to the door and walk away please ask them if you can drive thru for their meal. Since walk up isn’t allowed at the drive thru they have no way to get their meal. We owe them that much!

FMCSA: Interstate 18 Year Old Military Drivers
Soon you may see 18-20 year old military interstate drivers in your office to obtain a medical examiner's certificate. The FAST Act military "pilot" program will allow selected military personnel 18, 19, and 20 years of age to operate a commercial motor vehicle in interstate commerce. The driver must have military "heavy vehicle training and experience". .FMCSA is looking for a small test number of military veterans of that age group to apply for the pilot program.

There is another discussion for a pilot program that will allow other 18-20 year olds to drive a commercial vehicle across state lines. We do not know what type of documents they will present when getting their medical certificate, but we will keep you informed on this effort that may in the future increase the number of interstate drivers of commercial vehicles. In the meantime, all drivers must be at least 21 years old to driver in interstate commerce.

Much of our business is Pre-Employment Drug Screens. 4 years ago we would be lucky to have 1 or 2 a month. Today we are seeing 5 - 9 each day. THE ECONOMY IS RED HOT AND PEOPLE ARE GETTING THE JOBS THEY ARE SEEKING AT THE PAY THEY ARE ASKING FOR!

DOT "Recreational Ma*****na" Notice
PDF icon odapc-notice-recreational-mj.pdf

DOT OFFICE OF DRUG AND ALCOHOL POLICY AND COMPLIANCE NOTICE


Recently, some states passed initiatives to permit use of ma*****na for so-called “recreational” purposes.

We have had several inquiries about whether these state initiatives will have an impact upon the Department of Transportation’s longstanding regulation about the use of ma*****na by safety‐sensitive transportation employees – pilots, school bus drivers, truck drivers, train engineers, subway operators, aircraft maintenance personnel, transit fire‐armed security personnel, ship captains, and pipeline emergency response personnel, among others.

We want to make it perfectly clear that the state initiatives will have no bearing on the Department of Transportation’s regulated drug testing program. The Department of Transportation’s Drug and Alcohol Testing Regulation – 49 CFR Part 40 – does not authorize the use of Schedule I drugs, including ma*****na, for any reason.

Therefore, Medical Review Officers (MROs) will not verify a drug test as negative based upon learning that the employee used “recreational ma*****na” when states have passed “recreational ma*****na” initiatives.

We also firmly reiterate that an MRO will not verify a drug test negative based upon information that a physician recommended that the employee use “medical ma*****na” when states have passed “medical ma*****na” initiatives.

It is important to note that ma*****na remains a drug listed in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. It remains unacceptable for any safety‐sensitive employee subject to drug testing under the Department of Transportation’s drug testing regulations to use ma*****na.

We want to assure the traveling public that our transportation system is the safest it can possibly be.

DRIVERS TAKING GNC'S PERFOMEX SST BEWARE.

You will probably not pass your Blood Pressure test. It increases your heart beat to an unhealthy level and tends to take your blood pressure above the minimums. It might be the difference between a Two Year Certificate and a 3 month MEC that requires you to have a physician try to solve your problem for you!

You can learn more by calling DOT E-Z or calling (678) 361-6595

Major features of a Commercial Driver's Physical Examination for their DOT Medical Card are: Blood Pressure, Vision, Hearing, BMI, general health conditions, etc.

It is normal to have drivers who do not exercise or control what they are eating to be deficient in one or more of these areas. Medications they take play an important role and the goal is always safety on the roads for all users.

Therefore when a gentleman arrived in our office demonstrating 20/20 vision with peripheral vision of 85 degrees in both eyes, Blood pressure of 136/76, standing 5'5" tall and weighing 136, normal hearing distance, it was shocking to hear that he worked one job five days each week and another on Sat and Sun. (7 days). It was even more shocking to find that he was 83 years old and had no intention of stopping his routine!

This is where I derive my pleasure!

Taking your blood pressure is an important part of your DOT CDL Medical Exam. Please don't drink an Energy Drink before you arrive. Your BP will be sky high and you won't pass!

FMCSA Public Notice: Dr. Anthony Lefteris, Doctor of Chiropractic, Atlanta, Georgia

On December 1, 2016, a Criminal Complaint in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia, was issued against Anthony Lefteris, Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.), National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (“National Registry”) No. 8343724872, of Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Lefteris was charged with Making False Statements, in violation of Title 18, U.S.C. § 1001; and Making a False Entry in U.S. Department of Transportation’s Records with the Intent to Impede and Influence the Proper Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation, in violation of Title 18, U.S.C. § 1519.

The investigation initiated by the U.S. Department of Transportation determined that while listed as a Certified Medical Examiner on the National Registry, Dr. Lefteris conducted a number of medical certification examinations that far exceeded a reasonable number of examinations. An undercover investigation conducted by the Georgia Department of Public Safety revealed that the purported medical examinations conducted by Dr. Lefteris at a truck stop in Atlanta, Georgia, exhibited a pattern whereby the examination was incomplete, required tests were not performed and information on the medical examination form was falsified.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) removed Dr. Lefteris from the National Registry on December 2, 2016.

USDOT/FMCSA intends to revoke all certificates issued by Dr. Lefteris to commercial motor vehicle operators within the past two years.

FMCSA offices nationwide are presently working with State Driver’s Licensing Agencies to obtain the contact information for all affected drivers. FMCSA is contacting these drivers and informing them that they have THIRTY DAYS to obtain a Medical Examiner’s Certificate from a Medical Examiner with valid certification on the National Registry.

Drivers and carriers with further questions should contact USDOT/FMCSA via email at [email protected] links icon or by calling 1-202-366-4001.

DOT is investigating the possbility of lowering the Commercial driver's age to 18. Sadly we are seeing people who have been unemployed for a couple of years trying to scrape together enough money to go to driving school to get a job. Jobs are plentiful in the transportation business.

DOT Medical Examiners are not supposed to diagnose, treat nor try to get drivers to alter their lifestyles. Sometimes that prohibition gets challenged when we see a very young person trying to build a career when he/she exceeds 350 lbs. It is all too frequent! Where you gonna live when your body wears out?
