    Default Who do we like for Basic Med or 3rd class

    So it's that time again. Who do we like in the ANC or Kenai Peninsula area for Basic Meds or Class 3?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've had good luck with Dr. Ernest Meinhardt in Anchorage. 907-522-1341. 9500 Independence Dr. Anchorage.

    Straight forward and common sense. If you can't pass a 3rd class with him, you won't pass it with anyone.

    Phil,
    I am going to aviation med services in Atown Tuesday for 3rd class on the way home from work. They charge a lot less than I used to pay in Soldotna.

    I used to use Dr. Gonzolo-Fraiser in Soldotna. But he retired. Then I used Doc Hansen a couple times but I think he retired as well.

    My 2nd class is due again so I will probably head up to Los Anchorage as well. Hopefully I will make another plane-search trip out of it.

    I think there is somebody here in Homer, but the medical establishment in Homer has done their best to misdiagnose and darn near kill me on numerous occasions. And they missed a tumor the size of a grape-fruit in the middle of my moms chest last June and it killed her in December. . So,,,, road trip.

    I do, was it really that long ago? If I remember correctly his office was in Spenard near Gwennies. It was a pretty good deal for out of town pilots. He also had a bed and breakfast and car rentals. Before that I used to go to Doc Rogers. He was in the basement of the Humana Hospital. Good guy to go to for a no hassle medical. His primary medical specialty was a pathologist...he told pilots he only wanted to see them in his office for flight physicals.
