Colin Kahanowitz in Sandton an option too.
I would recommend my current but I noticed that based on my medical certificate numbers from one year to the next that she issued only 3 Medical’s in a year - so looking to change myself as I have found her to be a bit reactionary to minor things - when I look at how hard it has been to keep my Cat2 medical and when I look at some people who hold a Cat 1 then I think maybe its better to deal with someone who does more. Your mileage may vary....

Dr. Ingram at Grand Central is a terrific AME, sadly he is also getting on and I wonder when he will retire. Dr. Murray was a good sort, some of these docs are almost seemingly out to get one, as mrb13676 puts it "reactionary" I find the older docs are in general more bedside manner orientated than the younger.

I had an odd experience with a certain doc that wanted me to go for tests on BP that was on the edge and cholesterol on the high side, I insisted that my BP was ok as was my cholesterol as I had recently completed a full check for vitality points.
I take a few of the Omega3 supplements and I think on that day it may have caused the cholesterol spike, I did mention it to the doc as normally I would come off those for an approaching medical.

When I suggested he halt the exam and that I was going for a second opinion he passed me and I immediately went for another check-up - all was normal, I went for another check to be safe again normal... wtf!

I've been taking K2, folic, and niacin with omega3 supplements as suggested by Rainer I eat healthy play a lot of tennis and run in between and it's worked for me, so I was really surprised when my BP and cholesterol was found to be high - not.
Straighten up and fly right!

I am due a medical end of October, and also used Dr Murray for many years. Is there any procedure required as far as moving medical details across between doctors?

Dr Ingham knows Dr Murray well, so said nothing for me to do to switch over.
All I had to do is take some ID and my last medical certificate

Im sure it should be similar with all Senior AME's
