Default Ord Ame

Can anyone recommend a good AME in Chicago. Anywhere is cool, but preferably the NW suburbs. I moved here last year and the 1 time that I went to an examiner out here he had me remove my shirt and pants to check for "tattoos" or "identifying marks" and then tried to make me turn and cough.... I'm now scared of this guy.

If you are willing to drive to the SW Burbs I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Woodward out in Aurora. I just did a 1st Class and it only cost me 80. No cough test, no tat checks. I have my students go see him, so if you are willing to drive its a painless experience. Check out his number on the FAA AME list. Good luck.

Go to the AME whose office is at ORD in terminal 2.

I don't know his name but I know a few of our guys go to him and say he what you want from an AME.

I recommend Dr. Anthony Kitslaar. Have been going to him for 2 years now. He has two locations - one is the UIC Medical Clinic inside Terminal 2 at ORD, and the other is a small office in Geneva. His availability is great and answers phone calls very quickly. Exam is very quick and straightforward - he does a lot of business for UAL guys.

Cell phone is 630-302-3336 or Anthony W. Kitlsaar, MD • Homepage

BUMP

Seeing as it's been four years... any recommendations/updates for Chicago-area AMEs? Preferably near ORD. Thanks!
