    Can you call the office and request a DR for your physical as long as they are on the national registry?

    If you go to a company they will want you to use their own people

    Right. My company has us go and setup or own dot physical. So I was wondering, can I call and request that same dr again?

    If you can afford it out of pocket, I would go do it and ask to be reimbursed. If it’s the same one you used before and they accepted it. I always do it on my own. I get reimbursed or I don’t. I accept that risk

    You just call the doctor and make appointment. Ask if on registry that’s it

    YES, you can! In fact, there are a lot of MEs that do walk-ins! You are going to have to pay for it.

    The question was a bit open-ended so my answer was generic. Is the OP asking because of a previous bad physical? BE CAREFUL!

    The minute clinic at CVS pharmacy is where I get mine done.
    It’s the fastest and easiest I’ve ever had done.

    Sounds to me you go to a clinic what has several different doctors that do physicals? What Ive found is there is only ever one doctor on duty at a time. In either case, if that's what you were asking, simply call the clinic and see what their policies are.
    There is no regulations that state you have to use a random doctor .
