Do we expect to hear from DodMERB after AROTC exams?

    My son has completed the required DoDMERB exams and the DODMETS website indicates they've received the reports from the physicians. Should we expect a communication indicating that nothing else is needed (no waivers) or is this a case where you will only hear from them if a waiver is needed?

    They will notify you if you pass, need a remedial or do not pass. Give it a couple of weeks before you call.

    Will do, thanks. I just found an old thread with a similar question which sent me to the DoDMERB site itself. Status there says "Under DoDMERB review." Status on DoDMETS now reads "Complete-Hold."

    Whew. Just found this with more research:History of open or laparoscopic abdominal surgery (CPT 22900-22999, 43500- 49999) during the preceding 6 months (P54). Uncomplicated laparoscopic appendectomies (CPT 44970) meet the standard after 3 months.
    DS had emergency appendectomy on August 6 2015. So he's beyond the 3 month period.

    GRR...Just spoke to Concorde, the DoDMERB contractor. The very kind woman that answered the phone indicated DS's status reads Complete-hold because the doctor did not properly complete the paperwork and after 3 requests has yet to provide the missing information. The Concorde rep will call the Dr again today. The doctor was 90 minutes late to the appointment and spent less than 10 minutes in the room with DS, so I guess I'm not surprised. My DS said the doctor did not have much of a bed side manner, barely spoke to him, and in direct contrast to the eye exam, the doctor didn't even offer a good luck wish. If the doctor does not resolve the issue DS may have to be retested, but why would we go back to the same facility for the same non-stellar service? I understand that everyone can have a bad day and all, but it's not as though we were the one that chose the service provider. Okay, rant over.
