CORVALLIS CLINIC OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE PHYSICIANS CERTIFIED TO NEW STANDARDS OF CDL EXAMS
CORVALLIS — The Corvallis Clinic Occupational Medicine physicians have recently been certified to the new federal standards required for providing commercial driver’s license exams.
William Ferguson, M.D., and Christopher Swan, M.D., are now listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry), a new program by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). All commercial drivers whose current medical certificate expires on or after May 21, 2014, at expiration of that certificate must be examined by a medical professional listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners.
Only medical examiners that have completed training and successfully passed a test on FMCSA’s physical qualification standards are featured on the National Registry.
To make an appointment, call 541-753-1786 in Corvallis (7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) or 541-928-6421 in Albany (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.). If you have certain pre-existing conditions you will have to fill out either one or two forms before you come in for the examination. To find out what these pre-existing conditions are and to download the forms, click here and then click the CDL Exam Pre-Existing Conditions Forms tab.
