Aviation Medical Consultation

*Virtual (Telehealth) or In Person Options Available

If you have developed a new medical condition since your last certification, we can discuss your concerns confidentially prior to your next exam. Once you are ready to disclose new (or previously existing) medical conditions, we can formulate a strategy to get the assessments, consultations, and treatments you may need. We can also assist in making expedited communications with the regional and Oklahoma City FAA offices to get your medical issues resolved and get you back in the air as quickly as possible. 

Take advantage of our Virtual (Telehealth) visits to discuss your Aviation Medical concerns from the comfort of your own home. Just select Virtual (Telehealth) Aviation Medical Consultation in the drop down box when you make your appointment online.

Pre-Participation Exam

Dr. Lemmon became a Pediatrician in 2001 and an Adolescent Medicine Subspecialist in 2007. He is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics in both of these specialties. If your teen or young adult child is in need of a pre-participation exam, these can be done on site at our office on the Tacoma Narrows airfield.

First, a thank you to Dr. Lemmon for filling a AME void in Eastern, WA and secondly to Bergstrom Aircraft in Pasco for hosting this monthly convenient and quality service to out flying community. Those of us with repeated AME contacts over many years of flying have a basis for giving Dr. Lemmon an A+ for his service. Thank you again for your contribution.
