Dr. John Abroon is a designated Civil Surgeon for the Unites States Department of Homeland Security, United States Citizenship and Immigration Service. The USCIS requires a medical examination as part of the entry and or residency application process.

The medical exam requirements are determined by the USCIS guidelines and vary based on various components.

Cost of Medical Exam

The medical exam is $500, which includes the cost of: i-693 forms, physical examination, Tuberculosis skin test, Syphilis blood test, and Gonorrhea urine test. Any required immunizations that the patient has not received, will need to be completed for an additional charge. Similarly if a chest x-ray or any additional blood work is required, there will be an extra charge.

Insurance Coverage  

Unfortunately most insurance companies do not cover the cost of an Immigration Medical Exam, so the individual will have to pay out of pocket.

What to Bring

Please bring photo identification such as a passport or federally approved documentation, as well as past immunization/medical records. Please have your paperwork translated to English if they are not already.


Medical Exam Expectations

After your medical exam is completed you will be asked to return to the office 48 hours later so Dr.Abroon can go over the results of your TB Skin test with you. If the test is considered positive, a chest x-ray or additional blood work will be required.
