Meet The Expert Physicians at Texas Aviation Medical Resources
Dr. Roy Diaz
Dr. Diaz received his AME designation from the FAA in 2011. He has helped countless pilots navigate through what can be a complex medical certification process for some aviators.
Dr. Diaz attended UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, TX, and received his acceptance into the Emergency Medicine Residency Program at Parkland Hospital in 2004. After successfully completing his residency at what is thought to be one of the busiest county hospitals in the nation, he began practicing medicine at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa, TX. In 2011, after his wife completed her Emergency Medicine training (yes, she is an ER doctor and a pilot as well!), they moved to the South Island of New Zealand to work in the small town of Invercargill. Dr. Diaz would eventually move back to West Texas to pick up where he left off.
Dr. Diaz began flying in 2007, and to date, he has accumulated more than 1700 total hours, including his Instrument, Commercial, and Multi-Engine ratings. He also decided to add the CFI/CFII and MEI ratings to his pilot career. Currently, he is preparing for his ATP check ride and King Air 350 Type Rating. Currently, Dr. Diaz flies a 2021 Carbon Cub FX3 and is always excited to talk about his adventures.
Like you, Dr. Diaz has a passion for aviation. He understands that for some, this is a livelihood, and for others, this is a weekend hobby. Either way, he has the experience to advise you on your condition(s) and what to expect with regard to your FAA Medical. You want a proactive AME that will act on your behalf. Schedule a consultation for an "off the record" discussion about what you can expect and what the FAA will expect from you when it's time to book your appointment.
