Immigration Medical Exam

We understand that navigating the immigration process can be complex and time-consuming, which is why our internist and team are here to streamline the medical examination component. Immigration medical exams are a crucial requirement for individuals seeking their green card, ensuring the health and well-being of both you and United States citizens. Dr. John Abroon is a highly trained USCIS Civil Surgeon and knowledgeable in the specific medical guidelines set forth by immigration authorities, ensuring that all necessary examinations and screenings are conducted accurately and efficiently.

Dr. Abroon will conduct a thorough medical assessment, including a detailed review of your medical history, physical examination, and any required laboratory tests. We understand that privacy and confidentiality are paramount, and all information shared during the examination is treated with the utmost care and respect. With our expertise, you can rest assured that your immigration medical exam will be conducted with precision and professionalism. Our goal is to minimize any potential delays or complications in your immigration journey and are happy to boast a high-approval rate.

We will ask you about psychoactive drug and alcohol use or any undocumented psychiatric illness or harmful behavior. We will also ask whether you have ever felt symptoms of cardiovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal and neuropsychiatric disorders. If you are sick during the scheduled time of your medical exam, you will be allowed to recover before rescheduling.

We will also verify whether you are up to date on all your vaccinations. Please bring a copy of all past vaccinations (translated into English if in another language.) These vaccines include:

  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis
  • Polio
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Rotavirus
  • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningococcal disease
  • Varicella
  • Pneumococcal disease
  • Influenza

If there are any you have not taken, we can administer the first dose of any of these vaccines.

While you do not need to be perfectly healthy to receive your green card, there are certain conditions that will make you inadmissible for United States residency. These conditions could create a public health emergency, and include:

Personal illnesses that will not affect others (such as cancer, heart disease, mental illness etc.) will not affect your qualification for residency. However, if you are considered a public charge (someone who needs welfare or government assistance because they cannot work in the United States and do not have medical insurance) you may be found inadmissible.

Whether you are an individual applicant, a family or an employer sponsoring employees, our internist and team are equipped to handle the medical examination requirements and documentation for a variety of immigration purposes. We strive to deliver prompt and accurate results, ensuring that your immigration process proceeds smoothly and reducing turnaround times.
