Watch out for Phony Medical Cards.
Be careful where you get your new medical cards. There have been many reports of drivers getting their new physical and the doctor had no legal right to do so. Since May of 2014 there was a law change that prohibited getting a physical unless the doctor was registered in the national registry.

Also to better protect yourself check here first before getting any physicals. https://nationalregistry.fmcsa.dot.gov
