Reviving again. I know there are lots of pilots that live here, just don't personally know anyone. An AME recommendation that does lots of pilots (not a family doctor doing it on the side) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Dr. Woodward Cannon
Address: 2800 Blue Ridge Rd, Raleigh, NC 27607
Phone: (919) 784-7874


Been using him for several years now, he is very good in my opinion. Very active pilot himself with a long personal history in aviation. Definitely not a family Dr on the side AME. Lot of guys down here use him.

Had someone else say the same thing while I was commuting. I will definitely try this guy. Thanks for the recommendation.

I recently had a first class medical here in Raleigh. I wish Iíd seen this thread before, because I just went based on location. I can tell you who NOT to use! And watch out, the same guy does work in Greenville.

DO NOT GO TO THIS GUY.

This was by far my most uncomfortable stressful flight medical appointment ever. I show up with my form filled out, and proceed to get the third degree on virtually every question on there. Then when I was sufficiently stressed, it was time for my blood pressure. Iíve never had high blood pressure ever in my life not once. But it took Half a dozen tries to get an even marginally acceptable outcome. And the vision test! They mustíve purchased the machine off the discount rack. I donít claim to have the eyesight I had in my 20s, but I still have no problem with 20/20 near or far. A recent optometry exam proves that. With this thing,though, I had to lean one way and the other just to make the letters clear. Sucked! Avoid!!
