Where is he located? Does he do EKG's on site? Eye test the machine or the wall chart?

He's got a EKG machine so I suppose so (haven't hit that age yet). His office is in a business park on Conway road between Semoran and Conway RD. I've seen him for a medical for a few years now and he's always been fine.

Those little box things do me in. The backlighting or something.

I not sure but you may want to try Carlos Porges or Raphael Perez-Espejo. I believe they both are AME's as well.

Not is Dr. Porges is certified to conduct HIMS evaluations, he's also an F/O with United driving the 75 and 767. Dr. Perez is a HIMS evaluator and a general aviation pilot as well. They have an office together in MCO.
