Athletic Commission Approved Medical Clearance Examination

West Coast Neurology is a one-stop shop for boxers and fighters looking to get medically cleared, no matter where they’re planning to fight.

Our dedicated staff works closely with the Athletic Commissions of California, Nevada and various states across the nation to clear hundreds of fighters every year seeking medical clearance. In California alone, we have historically cleared more than 90 percent of all fighters with the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).  

Given our history with the Commissions (which include WCN’s Dr. Gluckman development of many of the protocols used to date) and experience facilitating and conducting medical clearance, promotional groups like MMA, Belator, Golden boy, TGB and more turn to West Coast Neurology to clear their fighters.

Depending on the state and combat sport you need to get cleared, you will likely have different requirements. While we work closely with several Commissions, you should work directly with the applicable Commission to ascertain the services you need to get cleared. For example, the required forms for clearance with the California Athletic Commission are below. Then, call us to schedule an appointment and get everything you need in one place — all in one day if you choose!

Our medical clearance services include: Physical Examinations, Neurological Examinations, Cardiovascular (EKG) Examination, Ophthalmologic (EYE) Examination, MRI & Review Summary, COVID Testing and Blood Testing.

You can arrive in the morning and have your entire workup completed by the time you leave. If you have somewhere to fight, we’ll get you cleared!
