    Hello all,
    I took my DoDMERB (medical and optometric) about 10 days ago. They have both been submitted and approved by on the DoDMETS website. So far, I haven't heard anything regarding the examinations, except an email for me asking to complete a survey. The appointments went smoothly and I doubt that I will need any remedials. Does anybody know if we should expect any updates? How will I know if I failed something and need to take a rememdial? Is hearing nothing a good thing? Thanks for viewing my thread.

    So right now my status says "All basic medical documents are recieved by DoDMERB on...". I'm guessing that this means that they have received everything, but haven't processed it and determined if I am qualified or not? The link that chud182 included takes me to a form that lets me release the results to family members, but I am confused if that will change to something else?

    Are you checking DodMets? This will NOT show any DODMERB status. This is only a tracking system used by DODMERB to track your exam appointment scheduling. You need to to go to the link provided above. TO DODMERBs website, sign in and that will show your medical status. The link above will take you to DODMERBs main page. There is a login link at right side of page. Since you are a new user, you will have to create an account.

    My sons status says Under DoDMERB review. Does this mean they received all of the paperwork? Or would it say this even if they only received optometrist? What is the under review timeframe?

    As far as I know it says under review when they receive both. After my appointments my paperwork got sent in almost immediately. My status said under review for maybe 4-5 days or so, max

    Using the link above my son's status is "under DoDMERB review". How long is this process? What is next? Either Qualified status or remedial?

    If it says under review it means they have all of the medical information and they are just processing it. It shouldn't take long to get you to either "Qualified" or, if you aren't qualified it should tell you that in just a few days. Keep checking it periodically.

    Does the under DoDMERB review show before the appointments also? Just curious as my DD just had her appointment today and it does in fact say "Under DoDMERB Review"...That seems awfully fast.

    When my DS did his exam I recall one doc (eye) came back out to the lobby and said the results were already faxed to DoDMERB. Thus, if you had the appointment early enough, they could change it that same day to the under review remark.

    I would not read anything into this at all. Good or Bad. It could just mean that the doc submitted the results shortly after the exam.

    My DD's DODMERB status has said "Under DODMERB review" from the beginning..i.e. before she had her exams. Her current DODMETS is Complete-Hold, so I know DODMERB does not have her paperwork yet.

    I can confirm that the DODMERB process can run quickly. My DS took his eye exam on 8/10 and the medical exam on 8/13. Both were loaded on the DODMETS portal on 8/14 with a status of "Complete." The were uploaded on the DODMERB portal on 8/17 and the status was "Under DODMERB review." BTW, the DODMETS status changed to "Closed." Today (8/18) DODMERB reads "Qualified" and his USNA application portal as been updated as well. Maybe he just got lucky.

    My DD DoMETS status says that it is "Complete", but it also says that the Medical forms have not been received. On DoDMERB it says Complete on the medical appointment (even though they have the original medical exam and optical date exam appointment and it was rescheduled a week later. DoDMERB was notified). DoDMERB also says "Under DoDMERB Review." Any of this seem off?
