    Hello All!

    Just got my deferred notice for my 3rd class medical. I've located my HIMS specialist, took care of all the requirements requested, just wanted to know what I should expect during this examination with her. Any insight that anyone has would be great!

    Best,

    Be completely honest. If you get caught in a lie or half truth you will end up regretting it.

    Make her feel like what ever got you into this deferral situation, it is behind you. That doing the right thing and being able to fly is really important to you.

    HIMS psychiatrist, psychologist, or AME?

    I can't really tell you without seeing the letter from the agency and you don't want to publish it here...

    During a HIMS evaluation if you do not display "true Verity" the report sez so...and you fail.
