I think the tone of your posts encouraged Dr Bruce to respond to your posts. You do come across a bit as a "why me" and concerned about the costs of the required tests the FAA may want you to undergo. Hey, I would be too, and the vast majority on POA would also. The way I interpreted some of your posts about Dr Bruce (again the tone) was that you didn't fully agree with him, and almost attacking him. Many have responded in this thread telling you that Dr Bruce is an expert in handling complicated flight physicals and to work with him. You say you are, good. I've written that there's not enough out there warning an unsuspecting new student about the online medical form and the control number you provide to the Doctor's office personnel, allowing them to "open" your medical with no way to reverse it. Something that flight schools and CFIs need to do a better job of educating prospective student pilots. Look, I think you need to take a breather from posting and just wait for the FAA's response. Then if you still wish to pursue it, comply with the tests they require. Whether you want to work with Dr Bruce is your decision. I do wish you success and hope you'll start flying.
