By undergoing the rigorous process required by the Department of Transportation to become a Certified Medical Examiner Dr. Freed, of Freed Chiropractic Clinic, becomes one of the first providers in the area to be able to perform medical exams required for the operation of commercial vehicles on US roadways. Starting May 21, 2014, all driver's holding CDLs will be required to undergo examination by a certified medical examiner upon the renewal date of their medical exam. Department of Transportation rules require strict adherence to certain protocol that must be followed by the medical examiner to ensure safety of the public roadways. To ensure the rules are followed, all providers performing these exams must be trained and certified in the requirements of the drivers beginning May 21, 2014. Recognizing the importance and the need of having providers able to perform these exams in the area, Dr. Freed underwent the process to become certified and was certified with the Department of Transportation as a Certified Medical Examiner on December 15, 2013. There are thousands of area commercial drivers who faced the possibility of not having a way to be medically examined in order to obtain or renew their CDLs locally or conveniently. By offering same-day examinations in either his Athens, OH or Belpre, OH office, Dr. Freed is able to provide these examinations within one day of calling to make an appointment, many times possibly the same day. To schedule an appointment, call the Belpre office at 740-423-6325 or the Athens office at 740-589-2225; or to learn more about the services provided, visit
