    I first contacted Bruce two years ago to see if it was possible for me to get a Third Class Medical. I frankly thought it was not, but after browsing this site, I decided if anyone could help, it was Dr. Chien.

    It wasn’t simple or easy, but Bruce encouraged me through every step of the process. And, after some months of effort, my certificate arrived. And after just a little more effort, I passed my private checkride this week.

    I encourage anyone who has certificate issues or doubts to contact Dr. Chien, follow his counsel to the letter, and if it can be done, you’ll get there.

    Dr. Chien, thank you again, I’ll always be grateful for your help!

    It was! Although once or twice when I was stuck on something in training it seemed more like a nightmare. Lol.

    Congratulations on PVT- ASEL. You are now a member of the <1%. Welcome, to the "ancient and eternal order of pilots".
    As I say to pilots, in one's life, aviation may go quiet but it never ever truly goes away. Rather like Herpes.

    Hey, I thought that was me! What’s worse than your doctor telling me you have Herpes?


























    Your Dentist telling you you have Herpes.

    And BZ to you Bruce! Thank you for all of your help and guidance in getting me across the finish line.

    To those of you in difficult medical situations, please consult good AME's like Dr Bruce, they know how the system works and what is needed to achieve the goal. Even in "retirement" Dr Bruce is dedicated to getting and keeping airmen in the air! Hats off!

    Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed chatting and catching up while I was up there for the exam. I just might have to make a lunch run to Clow "International" sometime...
