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.

I highly recommend Dr Lemmon. I recently moved to the Gig Harbor area, and needed a new Flight Surgeon. I'm very glad I found Dr Lemmon. He is very professional, he is a pilot himself, and his office uses a very efficient on-line scheduling system. A++

Excellent AME. Efficient and easy to book. Forms filled out ahead of time means you’re in and out in a short amount of time. Dr. Lemmon’s office is welcoming and nice, as is Dr. Lemmon and his staff. The price is fair, too! I appreciated the transparency from the beginning. I’ll be back each time my medical is due.
