    Any Des Moines area pilots?

    I will be in DM in a couple weeks and I am needing to get a new medical. Do any of you have any recomendations of a Dr. that gives flight physicals? Thanks you.

    FWIW Dr. Weissinger in Stuart, IA is a pilot himself. He may do it. He's a good guy. Also, Dr. Lockard in Urbandale is also a pilot. He's a good guy as well. Not sure if there is any correlation to being a doctor/pilot and doing the flight physical you need. They are both affiliated with Mercy should you go looking.

    Thanks, I will check into them. However, just because they are a pilot doesn't mean they do flight physicals. They have to be appointed by the FAA to do these, most Dr's don't do these type of physicals.

    I have used Dr. Paul Volker in Boone the last two times. He is a pilot. I need to go see him again. I see I expired in July when I looked up his name for this post.

    What exactly is a flight physical? Just a regular physical? Or while flying?

    FYI, for any pilots on here, I have started groups on Facebook and LinkedIn under "Iowa Pilots." Please join.

    Thanks,
