Dr Joanna Lapish is able to certify Class 1, 2 and 3 CAA medical certificates.

PLEASE!  Try to make your booking 30 days before your expiry date in case CAA require further investigations or I need to liaise with CAA for you.  If you see me up to 30 days before your expiry date, the CAA allows the date on your new certificate to be calculated from the expiry date. You will not lose this time by coming to see me early.  By leaving it too late your certificate may lapse before your next one is ready.

•    $400 First medical
•    $368 Repeat certificate (includes ECG and spirometry if required)
•    $115 to do both CASA and CAA medical at the same time

Please phone reception for an appointment:
