Medical Examination for Immigration / i-693

Dr. Podolny is a designated Civil Surgeon and is authorized to perform the medical examination and completion of the
i-693 form
Please contact our office to schedule an appointment.

We charge $200.00 for the immigration physical plus tax. This includes a TB test if necessary and 2 meetings. The first meeting is for the actual physical exam and a review of medical records and history. The second visit is to finalize the paperwork. If a TB test is required a visit 2 days after the placement of the test is also required and included in the cost of the visit.

For individuals that are off island there is an additional $75.00 charge for the extra coordination/evaluation in preparation for a single visit completion of the forms.

The only accepted immunization records are originals or copies of originals with Month, day, year dates and accurate dosing information. If they are in a foreign language an accurate translation needs to be provided. If the immunization information is not complete then the examinee may opt for either blood tests which will demonstrate they have been vaccinated or to repeat the vaccinations themselves. If a female applicant requires vaccinations a pregnancy test may be requested depending on the vaccination. There is an $8.00 additional fee for this.

Depending on the level of documentation which you provide additional vaccinations, chest X ray, and/or blood tests may be required. These are not included in the $200 fee as they are done off site. (If you have health insurance it may cover the costs) We will give you the required prescriptions and lab work as needed and help coordinate the reports to finalize the exam. Please be aware that USCIS requires a comprehensive physical exam to rule out communicable diseases of the skin (Hansen's disease), tuberculosis, and sexually transmitted diseases.
