“David’s approach to aviation medicine was of the highest order. Thorough and totally professional, he put me at ease immediately and what can be a rather stressful event for one who is no longer in the flush of youth turned out to be a very pleasant experience. Definitely worth the drive through the lovely Shropshire countryside.”
Wing Commander Dick Barton MBE BSc RAF (Retd)
“David has an excellent straight forward conscientious no nonsense approach towards your health and flying. Upon meeting him I soon felt at ease. He has a wealth of knowledge, expertise and common sense; and a really nice guy to boot. I look forward (yes I did say that) to my next medical knowing I'm in good hands.
I can’t recommend David highly enough. I will be using him for my medicals for the foreseeable future and would not hesitate to ask for his advise/help on any health issues that may arise in the future.”

“After a quick email (which included detailed directions and a check list of which documents etc to bring with me) I was booked in.
Dr Carey offered me friendly advice regarding my opticians eye test and the examination took place in a relaxed but efficient and professional manner.I have since recommended Dr Carey to fellow instructors and students.”
