Prior to your appointment

If you have a medical condition or take medications that may be disqualifying (check here for the list) please review Sport Pilot Medical Requirements prior to completing MedXpress. Email / Call Dr. Levin if you have any questions about a medical condition, or a medication, before completing your MedXpress application.

Please follow the link to MedXpress and complete the history portion of your exam prior to your appointment.

If you have been seen by your family physician for a physical, list this in the section on “physician visits in past 3 years”. This is especially important if you are on long term medications like blood pressure meds. Also Please list hospitalizations/surgeries as appropriate even if they were “previously reported, no change”

When you complete the history portion of the MedXpress form, you will be given a confirmation number.

Be sure to print out or copy your Confirmation Number and send to Dr. Levin or bring it to your appointment.
