Customer Question
Doing a pre employment...

Doing a pre employment drug test and I use absolutely no prescription or street drugs but was wondering if they test for alcohol back more than lets say 36 hours?

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.

What more info do you need? It is a straight forward question. Oh. It is the financial industry not a CDL or anything like that.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

No they do not.

They check alcohol level only not ETG for routine pre employment screening.

So you should be fine.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
