What is the turnaround time for medical waivers and how long do they take? Also If I have everything that needs to be submitted doctors records and everything saying that I’m fit for military service what Is the likelihood it would be approved .

We have no idea what the issue is and how big the hurdle that you face. No one on RallyPoint can tell you how long it will take or if it will be approved.

Actually I can tell you that Dr. Wong is currently on the week of Nov 8th. Assuming MEPS submitted your paperwork today, you should know if your waiver is approved within the next 3 weeks then again you probably have to add a week for the holiday.

Greg Simmons Dr.Wong is the waiver authority that all waivers go through, that is above all MEPS.
