IMMIGRATION MEDICAL EXAM [Q&A]

The immigration medical exam is not only a doctor’s visit but also includes a series of laboratory tests, immunizations and sometimes X rays as well as referrals to other consultants. The immigration exam that we provide also includes completion of the I-693 Form. Remember form I-693 is a legal document and needs to be completed accurately to avoid delays in your immigration case. Our advice is to come in with your valid ID ( you will not need to bring anything else) and we will guide you “step by step” on what you need to do. We are going to make your process easy and simple!
