    Hi, I was contaced by Dodmerb a little less then two months ago to get my medical exams done. I did the online suvey as soon as I got the email, but with holdiays and finals coming up I waited on setting up the actually exams. This morning I was going checking my inbox and saw that 12 days ago I got a 15 day notice to schedual my appointments. I was planning on doing it today anway but after that I immediately went to schedual both appoitments. I left a message for the physical place and they will get back to me later today. But the eye exam place said the lady who handles Dodmerb appointments is sick and wont be in till next wensday or 2 days past my deadline. I sent an email to DoDmerb about it but my question is am I tottaly screwed or Will they give me more time.

    This is exactly why I personally never wait until the last minute to do anything: to allow for the unforeseen. There should be a phone contact for your DoDMRB representative. I would think this deserves a phone call. We had to call our rep a couple times and she was very timely with returning calls (our rep required a message, which she returned the next day...so call ASAP to allow for that!), and was very kind and helpful. Also, with DS in school, it was difficult for him to make contact during business hours, but since he is a minor, I could talk to them about ds’s issues. If you are 18, it will have to be you unless you sign and send in the authorization form.

    If you call the main number...your rep is according to your last name. They will provide you with the name and extension. You leave a message and they call you back within a few days. You will need last four of social security number when you leave a message.

    If you sign into doDMRB, there is a general number at the bottom. If you have received actual letters from them in your DoDMRB login, there cold be an assigned number for your last name (alphabetically, as mnsallot said) in you letter. Of note: when we called the number according to alphabet the very first time, we were given another one to call, as the alphabet designation had assigned.

    Go to the DODMERB page and click on/download Questions on the process. You will get a PDF with the phones of all DODMERB techs according to last name.

    Or go directly to Contacts to find the numbers.

    Call DoDMERB asap & speak with your tech. If you are sent to voicemail, try to reach a different tech until you’re able to speak to a human. Regarding the eye appointment facility, perhaps there is another contracted clinic in your area(?).
    Best wishes.

    just get an appointment and let them figure out the dodmerb stuff later. worm your way in. don't wait. the eye guy will understand. if they say no, show up at the scheduler's desk with a box of chocolates. And don't wait for them to call back to schedule your physical.

    So, I have finished all my exams, and aprrently that letter they sent me means nothing. I called them about it and said dont worry about it. And when I hit that monday deadline they just sent another letter that said the same thing but added another 15 days. So they just got me worked up for nothing, guess its a scare tatic to make you get it done. Anyway thanks to all who answered.
