nanner77,

Welcome! It depends on for what purpose you are talking about. If you mean for missing duty, his command may require he get a note. If you mean for purposesw of an MEB/PEB, going to the doctor for certain conditions will help with a rating. For some, though, just documentation of a flare or attack is sufficient (but, of course, going to the doctor's office would seem to indicate the severity of the attack and would provide good documentation). It is hard to be more specific without more details.

Hope all goes well!

I would say yes,

Here are the reasons:

1. All persons have to be accounted for at all times.
2. It would be in his best interest to go to the med center for every day missed at work, for at least documentation reasons.
3. If it is a long term illness, I don't understand why they would not just put him on convalescent leave.
