SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I am trying to apply for the HPSP in the Air Force. I went through MEPS and told them I had asthma when I was a kid. The doctor there ordered a pulmonary consult, so I figured they would consult me out while I was there considering I drove 3.5 hours to get to MEPS. No instead MEPS lets me leave and after I get home I find out the Surgeon General's Office wants my medical records for my asthma and they don't know why MEPS let me leave. Well my childhood doctor is no longer practicing and I find out another doctor I saw has records of prescriptions for inhalers but that's it. Now the SGO wants those records before they will send me to a consult even though I don't have asthma symptoms anymore. Wouldn't it make sense to consult me out for pulmonary tests rather than looking at a medical record from 8-10 years ago? I'm pretty sure they want to know if I have asthma now so why the wait? Is this the sort of inefficient bureaucratic bs I have to look forward to as a military physician? It's just so aggravating. Thanks for letting me vent.
