If you are wondering if your personal doctor can also be your MRO, the short answer is “possibly, but probably not”. The DOT regulations require MROs to be certified. Unless your doctor is a certified MRO, he or she may not act as a Medical Review Officer.
Can my personal doctor operate as my Medical Review Officer (MRO)?
