    Just got the call to schedule follow up on medical with CFD. Make sure your primary care doctors are open and have availability in the upcoming weeks. Even schedule one preemptively if you can swing. Easier to cancel an appt then schedule one right now.
    When did you go to Concentra?

      When you meet with Dr Wong, he should have a good idea of when the next class will be.

      Also that’s great advice about preemptively making a Drs appointment. For my followup they didn’t give me any indication of what the health issue was before the meeting, but regardless, I could have set up a doctors appointment. Every day counts, and the quicker you’re cleared the better position you’ll be in for the next class

        Dr Wong isn’t even there anymore so it should be interesting who is doing medical

        • Update: My DRs office called me back to schedule a phone consultation. Based on the phone consultation they will determine whether an in person follow up will be needed. I’m scheduled with CFD tomorrow and primary care phone call Monday. Hopefully no labs or anything needed and can be cleared over the phone which would be ideal. Start getting on the horn with your PCP to get a feel for their process right now.

                    • Anyone have any idea when the next initial screening month is? Well it be after the next Academy class starts? I deferred in March because of COVID and quarantine and haven’t heard anything back.

                      • According to Second Battalion CFD, a class of 100 will be starting on July 16. I believe I read earlier in this thread that there were already 55 or so people waiting from the last referral. That would leave approx 45 people from this referral to make it in. Does anyone know how many people from March processing have been called for Medicals? Are people still taking them? Trying to get a gauge on how many people I’m up against to get into this upcoming class.

                        i just took my medical the 18th which seems to be after a lot of people in this thread.

                        • New to the forum. Processed in March, background completed and CPAT turned in. Haven’t heard anything going forward, has anyone from march processing been called for a medical?

                            Roughly 60 people have been sent to medical from the March processing.

                              • I’d guess that If you haven’t done your medical you won’t be making the July 15th class. You need to do a covid test which takes a few days then medical and final processing. I don’t see that all happening in the next 2 weeks
