MMPI-2 Tier 2 Process

Messages

They had my records in a a couple of months or so. Once the flight surgeon looks at my record and approves it there shouldn't be more than a month of them figuring out what state/region I'm in and telling me the closest approved providers to go schedule with. The biggest issue is there is no communication from tier 2 to the applicants.

Also, since I've been told my file was reviewed and approved by the flight surgeon, who reviews it after my appointment?
My Medical HR POC told me Aug 20th that he has all my records and the flight doc has approved them and now he has sent my records to the Tier 2 people which are located in DC. ( He said it takes around 45 days to hear something from then) He was correct, it took exactly 45 days and i got an email from the Tier 2 people on October 5th. There are instruction to follow in the email and a week later i scheduled my Tier 2 Evaluation appointment on October 25th. And I asked my doctor who evaluated me to send me an email when she mails off my evaulation report back to the tier 2 people and she did on October 30th. I read somewhere that they have 45 days to approve/deny me, but who knows if that is accurate or not. Everyones timeline is different, obviously. But I am from Southern California.

Well I hope the 45 days for an email still holds correct, but I have a feeling it hasn't been white that since October. If it is I should hear back soon then.

You go see the local doctor, then they send it back, psych in DC reviews it and makes a determination, sends it back to your regional office. Then they finalize and approve or deny it.

This is my first post here so I apologize if it is in the wrong place. I figured starting a new thread would be a better idea instead of trying to find a past one that fits my situation. I have hit a brick wall with my medical analyst and am hoping someone here might be able to give me some insight on what (if anything) I can do to help my process.

I took my MMPI in October 2017 and completed the drug test, fingerprints, medical exam, etc. in October/November. I hadn't heard anything back by February 2018 so I called regional medical and left a message asking for updates. I then received an email from my medical contact saying that I needed further evaluation. A day later, I received an email from Hope saying that I failed the MMPI, needed further evaluation and that necessary paperwork would be generated when a doctor was found to take my case. I heard nothing until June 2018 when I was asked to complete an SF180 to release my military personnel records; I completed and returned it the same day as I received it. I emailed my medical POC a few weeks later to asked if she received my files; she had not. I called my regional medical office in mid-July (because my medical analyst was not returning my calls) and was told my file was lacking my VA disability letter and personnel files. I sent my medical POC the VA letter back in November 2017 and she confirmed she received it, so that was news to me. I sent regional my VA letter and then asked my medical analyst what happened with the VA letter (why it was never uploaded) and for general updates, she ignored all of my questions and basically said there was nothing for me to do at this time. At this point (August 2017) I felt I needed to follow up on my personnel files so I contacted the USAF to see if they could help. I got in touch with a helpful representative that emailed my files to my medical POC. I confirmed with my medical analyst that she received them; she said that she did and that my file had been forwarded to the Tier 2 program for review and there was nothing more for me to do at this time. I have been stuck at this point since August and have not been provided and information on what comes next. I have asked for updates since then but have been told "there will be no updates until my file is complete with the Tier 2 program". I have asked my medical POC numerous times what the next step will be, to make sure that nothing is missing, if they need more information, etc., and all of my questions/requests have gone unanswered. I have left her voicemails that have never been returned. I have cleared all other steps and this Tier 2 is the only thing holding me up. I can't contact the Tier 2 people because in my original email, it said emails will not be returned. I have reached out to the Patriots email (as instructed by Aviation Careers) and regional medical and all queries were directed back to my medical POC instead of anyone else giving me answers. I feel as if I reach out to anyone else, they'll just redirect my questions to my analyst and I will end up frustrating her further. I can pretty much tell she's tired of me contacting her.

I am hoping someone here can enlighten me as to what comes next in the process? I realize that eventually I will get a doctor's name and an appointment, but is there anything that I could be missing that would be preventing me from getting an appointment? Are medical analysts not allowed to answer your questions or tell you the steps in the process? I have moved regions since my process started but still have the same analyst. I am applying for the May 2017 Experienced bid and am located in the Western Pacific region (I came from the Southeast region). I was a controller in the USAF but have since separated. I have had no legal trouble (misdemeanors, tickets other than speeding, etc) in my life or any disciplinary issues while I was serving. I rarely went to the doctor (maybe 3 times, only when I was very sick) while I was in the Air Force. I have never been to a psychiatrist or had any issues with mental health. I have sent my POC a fully copy of my military medical chart to try to help the process.

I realize this is a lot to read and hope it all makes sense. I am trying to be patient but it is difficult when I don't really know how far along I am or what is holding me up. Any information anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I am in the same boat just waiting and waiting! My bid was in 2016
