Piloting patients to good health

If given a choice, Dr. Robert Thomas would find ways to climb into airplanes and fly every single day.

“Oh, how I wish,” Thomas said smiling. “But I have a job to do.”

Grounded far too often for his liking, Thomas still plays a pivotal role in the lives of many of the pilots who make Alaska’s aviation industry soar. A certified aero-medical examiner, Thomas specializes in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) physicals, in addition to men’s health and alternative medicine.
