Default Looking for Easy AME (Color Vision Santa)

I have a slight color vision problem. Slight enough that I see most numbers in the cards, always passed the FALANT in the military and I see the light Gun Signals with no problems at all.

My current medical has no limitations as my previous AME (once I told him that I could not see some of the numbers on the cards) simply asked me if I could tell him the color of his pen and then the color of his binder. After I could he said, you are good to go. Unfortunately, he has now retired.

So I am looking for a new AME. Dont really care where in the country he or she might be. I am willing to travel.

Is there anyone out there with a similar experience that might be able to direct me towards an easy going pilot friendly AME that is nice to color vision deficient pilots?

Feel free to email me if you would rather not spread the word online.
