    While I was taking my medical exam I was told I did not need to take the reading test or do the urine analysis. Was I supposed to? The lady told me that the urine test no longer needed to be done

    Go with what you were told. If you require additional medical tests, DODMERB will let you know.

    Eagle,

    Can you please e-mail me your full name and the last 4 digits of your SSN? I do believe the facility misled you and I would like to remedy ASAP.





    Thanks,
    Joe

    Get in touch with joepapp right away.

    When my son had his Dodmerb Physical he had a similar situation. I drove my son to his appointment, when he came out I thought it went way to quickly compared to my older son's Dodmerb physical. I ran through the list with my son to make sure they did everything, he said they never did the hearing test. When I asked the front desk about it they just said that it wasn't required at the time. We pressed the issue and fianally found someone in the office that agreed the hearing test should be completed, he went back in and took the test. It's a good thing we pushed the issue because he found out later that it was indeed required and he would have had to go back a second time.

    Sometimes the exam offices get a bit mixed up.

    Exactly. Everyone at the office knows who Concorde is...but they may not know what the patient is there for. When it gets busy, it can compound the issue. The best advice is to be friendly and respectful with the doctor/office, and always call Concorde at 800-966-9790 if there are questions.




    Cheers,
    Joe

    I just had my medical exam and had the same problem. So is the urine analysis required? I guess I should contact Concorde Inc. as well.

    The instructions say that a UA is required, however, they are no longer part of the examination. Some facilities may be doing them intermittently -- please follow the instructions of the provider. If there are any issues, Concorde will know when the exams are received and we can take appropriate action.




    Cheers,
    Joe
