FAA Aviation Medical Examinations

We have just completed an FAA inspection and are pleased to announce our new location at the Lorain County Airport at 44050 Russia Rd., Elyria OH, 44035. The Lorain County Airport office is located at the MRK FBO. Appointments at the Lorain office can be made online or by calling Susie at 419-908-5389. For August we will be at the Lorain office on August 1st, 9th, and the 29th. Addition appointments are available at our Ashland Ohio office.

Located on the field at the Lorain County Airport (KLPR) and Ashland County airport (3G4) our goal is to support the aviation medical needs of professional pilots in a relaxed office setting and make the medical certification process as painless as possible. We work with the FAA Great Lakes Regional Flight Surgeons Office and the FAA Aviation Medical Certification Division when necessary as your advocate to reduce delays involving complex aeromedical issues, provided those issues do not impact aviation safety concerns. While our special interest is providing convenient appointment scheduling to and advising professional pilots regarding aviation related healthcare issues we provide the same service to general aviation pilot as well.
