I have worked with AMAS for several years. There is no need to look elsewhere; they are the best in their field. They have assisted me in maintaining my special issuance 2nd Class Medical with great medical expertise. Many thanks AMAS, keep up the great work!
AMAS is one of the least-known but very best member-only benefits. When facing a medical qualification issue that affects the future of your career, AMAS provides board-certified, respected doctors to assist in answering questions and representing members.
In 2003, I was diagnosed with coronary artery disease and had an angioplasty and successful stent placement. The AMAS team made the entire process relatively painless and much less time consuming. I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
I am very impressed with the work of AMAS — how you were so proactive in keeping me informed about the status of my case and the prompt attention you gave to my phone calls. As a satisfied customer, I will be a very strong advocate for AMAS going forward.
I had suffered from a Vertebral Artery Dissection in 2010. Without Dr. Snyder and his group of peers I may still be struggling to have my medical reinstated. Thank you Aviation Medical Advisory Services! I am proud to be a member of AMAS.
