image 3Dr. Don Pearsall

Dr. Don Pearsall was born and raised in Long Island, New York where he was a Regents scholarship winner, two-time American Legion Americanism winner,Long Island Press Scholar Athlete award winner and wrestling champion, and soccer team co-captain.

He attended prestigious Columbia University on a full academic and athletic (wrestling) scholarship to receive his premedical degree. He was on course to attend traditional Medical school until he was exposed to Chiropractic and alternative medicine, which seemed to be a logical alternative to drugs and surgery in many cases.

He received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1980 and moved to Jupiter Florida with his wife, Linda, to begin practice in a small family oriented town. The “Doc” is an avid offshore fisherman, scuba diver, boater, and chef, as well as a supporter of many local charitable organizations such as the Quantum House Charities, and is a past president of The Love Doctors Charities, a non profit organization dedicated to helping the less fortunate.

In the words of the Doctor:

Recently , I passed a rigorous examination to be included in the limited membership National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners for the Department of Transportation (DOT).

As of May 2014, all CDL holders must be examined and certified only by registered professionals found in the National Registry.

As a certified medical examiner, my mission is twofold:

Primarily we must make sure, to the best of our ability, that you as a professional driver are mentally and physically capable of safely operating your vehicle.

Secondly, we want to help keep you on the road as long as you desire, if possible, to protect your earning ability, and the safety of the public at large.

According to to Department of Transportation statistics, the average commercial driver is:
Over age forty.
Over tired
Poorly nourished
Less than the picture of health

In order to support our mission we have available supervised, proven weight loss programs that travel well on the road. Our proven program has been successful at controlling blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, conditions which all too commonly disqualify otherwise qualified drivers.
We also offer personalized life coaching to help achieve success and happiness and relieve stress. we can address all of the five statistics listed above, EXCEPT the age part!

Your examination includes the mandatory urine analysis, designed to detect diabetes, kidney disease and other metabolic problems.

In house drug and alcohol testing, if required by your employer , will be available soon. This testing is NOT a mandatory part of the CDL examination.
