Default South of seattle AME

I use Dr. Kirk Harmon in Fife, WA. Scheduling is hassle-free and he's taken last minute appointments for me that really helped me out. Service is pretty efficient and friendly. He loves pilots and is a former Air National Guard flight surgeon.

Anyone know of a pilot friendly doc north of Seattle. Bonus if he/she takes health insurance too.

I just used Kirk Harmon in Fife recently, for the first time. Thumbs up.

I went to Dr Choudhary in Kent for the first time last month. Very pilot-friendly and a pleasant staff. She has a regular practice and doesn't just churn out pilot medicals, so I wasn't seen on time. But overall a good experience.

Not sure how far north of Seattle you're looking at, however, I have had good luck with Dr. Tisdall in Bellingham.

She deferred me for a simple cortisone injection....AMAS says this should have never happened. I won't see her again.

DO NOT USE DR. CHAUDHARY

Sorry for the all caps, but she will ruin your career and not bat an eye. She thinks she knows better than the FAA on what is, or is not allowed. She will also go straight to OKC instead of calling the local office, and she will plead her case that she is in the right. It's not that she's vindictive, she just has no clue. And when she's wrong, she won't admit it or apologize. ALPA medical was already aware of her when I called, and they recommended that I not go back to her.

Again... DO NOT USE DR. CHAUDHARY

I really hated reading this. I had a run in with an arrogant prick doctor who made a situation worse (non-AME) a few months ago and it sucks. No one needs attitude from a doc.
