Northwest Aviation Medicine’s response to the COVID 19 Pandemic

Dr. Keith Lemmon

We take infectious disease very seriously at NAM.  During the COVID 19 pandemic, we want you to know we are committed to ensuring your experience with us is as safe and comfortable as possible.  At NAM, we ONLY do Pilot Aviation Medical Examinations, so you don’t have to worry about coming into contact with other patients who are coming in for sick visit evaluations.  We screen pilots by phone when making appointments and only schedule those who are well and haven’t had recent exposure to COVID-19.  If you are currently sick or have had a recent exposure, we will recommend a visit once your symptoms have resolved or your quarantine time has elapsed.  We have enhanced our normally fastidious cleaning and disinfecting procedures to ensure risk reduction of any virus transmission in the office.  If you would like to minimize your time in the office, we can set up an initial virtual visit by phone or video call to discuss history and regulatory information.  You must still come into the office briefly for your physical screenings and exam, but we can reduce your time in the office with this procedure.   Aviation remains a critical and essential industry as we battle the COVID 19 pandemic.   We remain committed to supporting you in keeping your FAA medical certification current so you’ll be ready to get back in the air as soon as it is safe to do so.  Wishing you good health and strong tailwinds in the near future!!!
