Dr. Mort Gubin, now 95 years old, is retired in 2020 as an FAA Medical Examiner. ?Dr.Gubin came to Palm Springs in 1971 and began practicing OB/Gyn, delivering babies at Desert Hospital (as it was called then).? He had served in the US Navy in World War II.
Dr Gubin had a small office just for pilot medical exams, located on the east side of Palm Springs airport, but it closed last year as Dr Gubin retired. The FAA has asked that FAA examiners not practice on-site at airports anymore.
Pilots can still get FAA Medical here in the Coachella Valley: “I want to carry on the tradition of Dr. Gubin” said Dr Daniel Cosgrove, who has an office in Indian Wells.? “Pilots will not wait, and they can be in and out in less than 15 minutes with the certification in their hand.”
Dr. Cosgrove began performing FAA Flight certifications in 1999. He is a “Senior Medical Examiner” which means that he can certify commercial pilots with a First-Class license, as well as perform those for Third-Class pilots who fly smaller planes, i.e. general aviation.
Dr. Cosgrove’s Indian Wells office draws pilots from all three Coachella Valley airports, located in Thermal, Bermuda Dunes as well as Palm Springs.? Many pilots are visiting the Palm Springs desert from out of state, but since the FAA Medical certification is a federal one, there are no restrictions by state.
Dr. Cosgrove was board certified in Emergency Medicine and practiced at the Desert Regional Medical’s Trauma Center for over ten years, but he is also board certified in Internal Medicine, and has practiced Internal Medicine in his medical office in Indian Wells for many years.? Dr. Cosgrove is an expert in Aviation Medicine and received training at the FAA national headquarters facility in Oklahoma City.
