- Print and complete your name section at the top of every page and bring to the office the USCIS I-693 printed from our website or medical portal. If you have an AA number enter that at the top of every page as well. Do not sign the USCIS I-693 form until you are in front of the Doctor

PLEASE make sure to cancel your appointment if you do not plan to come. There is a $75.00 fee whether or not you see the doctor, called a no-show fee, if you do not come to the appointment and have not called at least one day in advance to cancel.
What if the person needing the immigration medical exam does not speak ENGLISH?
Unfortunately, our very small office does not have translators. So in order to help you, unfortunately you do need to be able to understand the questions in English that the doctor will ask you. Your family member can not translate for you. You may find and bring an official translator with you. We regret at this time we currently are not able to offer translation services.
Our goal is to help you through the immigration process, by being as supportive as we can during your process. We help you with your I-693 form, and do the necessary testing for it. This will take approximately 1-2 weeks, from the date of your initial exam with us.
We do the medical examination and some of the vaccinations. If you don’t have some common (required)childhood vaccines, we will be giving you a prescription for these, if your blood work does not indicate you already have immunity to the USCIS required diseases. We also will draw the necessary lab work if possible, right here in the office at no charge. We have requested the most affordable laboratory services we can.
You may enter your medical insurance information if you happen to have insurance – but it does NOT pay for USCIS exams. Sometimes medical insurance pays for Tetanus vaccines and one of the required lab tests.
