If you are Adjusting Status (aka Adjustment of Status or I-485 or AOS) in the United States, a USCIS Doctor or Military Doctor will have to perform a medical examination on USCIS Form I-693. The Medical will focus on Vaccination, Blood Work, TB Screening, and a few other medical-related items. The end result is a Sealed Medical that would be valid for “60 days” and must be at USCIS before the expiration date.
If you are in Eastern NC, our office recommends the following USCIS Doctors due to the amazing track record with hundreds of our clients. Please choose one closest to you:
Dr. Mark Samia in Raleigh NC at 919-878-4647
Medac Health Services, PA in Wilmington NC at 910-452-7000
Klein Health, P.A. in Greenville NC at 252-329-0000
If you wish to find more USCIS Doctor Offices than those listed above, you can visit the following website: my.uscis.gov/findadoctor
If you are active duty or an active duty dependent, please check with your local Military Hospital. In Eastern NC, all Immigration Medicals are being performed at the Army Hospital on Fort Bragg (Fayetteville, NC). It is our recommendation to acquire the medical for free with Tricare versus paying $400 to $1000 or more on the Immigration Medical from a USCIS Doctor.
Again, please note that the Immigration Medical expires within 60 days of performing the Medical Examination. As such, it is our office policy to submit the USCIS Filing with the Medical within 45 days of Examination as to avoid any delays or requiring a new Immigration Medical.
