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.

Dr. Lemmon did a great job helping work through some challenges. I can't recommend him enough. It's also great to be able to fly in.

I had my Basic Med exam from Dr. Lemmon on June 16th, 2021. It was an excellent experience. There was very little wait time. The staff was courteous and efficient. Dr. Lemmon listened to my questions and helped me understand the process. I would highly recommend this doctor for FAA medical exams.

Very efficient operation out of the Tacoma narrows airport. Loved the ability to plug in all my info online prior to showing up and just be in and out quickly. Added bonus of plane watching in the waiting room as there is a window that looks out to the runway. To each their own but for a Class 3/PPL this seems easier than keeping up with Basic Med, especially if you're still in the under 40 age range (good for 5 years vs 2).

Dr. Lemmon has built a great AME office at the KTIW airport. I found it cool to have the airport be the backdrop of getting my medical. If you're not local you can fly in, get your medical, and fly home. Dr. Lemmon is a great listener, and made getting a medical a low stress, respectful process. The office is clean and comfortable doctor's office, but in a hangar! The online scheduling process incorporates both the FAA MedXPress and your appointment. I don't think I've had an easier experience, including getting my EKG done for my First Class Medical. I will be going back to Dr. Lemmon for my future medicals.

Dr. Lemmon is friendly, efficient, extremely knowledgeable, and wants to see us continue flying. I renewed my first class medical with him and was well taken care of. His office is clean and conveniently located on KTIW. I look forward to utilizing his services in the future.
