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. Be sure to bring in the form you need to have signed by the doctor with all of your demographic and health information filled in on the day of your visit.

Dr. Lemmon completed my third class medical exam. Scheduling an appt online was easy, an email detailed instructions to get to the office and the exam itself was efficient. I would recommend this practice to any aviator and will use them again.

What a convenience this is! I love the idea of having this service at the air field. I scheduled an initial flight physical with Dr. Lemmon so that I may attend a university helicopter pilot program. I was unaware of needing a MedEx account and he was patient and took extra time explaining the process to me prior to our visit. My experience was great. Thank you Dr. Lemmon and Thank you for your service to our county🇺🇸

Great Service Dr. Lemmon is providing here. I drove from Oregon up to Dr. Lemmon's practice given his experience and expertise as an AME specifically. I had an item that ultimately required FAA review and a special exception and Dr. Lemmon walked me right thru the entire process. I recommend him for everyone requiring an AME and would say, it's worth the trip! Hope he lands in Hillsboro, OR someday! Thanks!
