I was deferred my third class medical because of a certain condition and the doctor said I’ll hear from the FAA in about 3-4 weeks with either my certificate or they’ll ask for more information. It’s been 3 weeks going on 4th week, and I’ve heard of them taking 2 months or longer so I was just wondering is there any way I could check the status of my medical like it can tell me it’s been sent back or is currently being reviewed or etc?

The standard way to check the status of your medical application is to call the Aerospace Medical Certification Division at (405) 954-4821.

When you call, it's very likely that you will hear a recorded message saying that due to high call volumes, they are unable to assist you. If you do, call again later. When I was checking on the status of my own application, I had to call quite a few times before my call was finally answered.
