When you apply for a green card (adjustment of status) in the United States, you need to have a medical examination, a.k.a “Immigration Physical”. Dr Petros Efthimiou is authorized by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to perform the medical exam required for most Green Card applicants.
What to Bring to the Exam
Bring the following to your medical exam:
- Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record
- Government-issued photo identification, such as a valid passport or driver’s license.
- Vaccination or immunization record (such as DT, DTP, DTaP, Td, Tdap, OPV, IPV, MMR, Hib, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, varicella, pneumococcal influenza, rotavirus and meningococcal disease)
During the Exam
The medical examination entails a review of your medical history and a physical examination.
The doctor will complete a comprehensive examination that will include a review of your medical history and a physical examination. The doctor will also test for communicable diseases such as tuberculosis, syphilis, and gonorrhea.
After the exam, the doctor will complete Form I-693 and seal the form in an envelope for you to submit to USCIS. Make sure you get a copy of the completed Form I-693 for your personal records before the doctor seals the envelope. USCIS will not accept the form if the envelope has been opened or altered.
