call us today to schedule your immigration physical
Authorized by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services as a Civil Surgeon
One of the main functions of a Civil Surgeon is to verify that you are current on your CDC recommended vaccinations. If you have any medical records of previous vaccinations, please bring those with you. Also please bring your completed portion of your I-693 form with you.
West Bloomfield Internal Medicine will keep your immigration physical paperwork until all tests have been completed. After this the paperwork will be released to you in a sealed envelope. Please do not open this envelope as it is required that it be presented to the USCIS while sealed.
Once you have submitted your required paperwork the determination is made by a USCIS officer after reviewing all relevant records, including the report of the medical examination.
Immigration physicals are required for anyone who would like to gain entrance and citizenship into the United States.

A medical exam is required for all immigrant visas, some non-immigrant visas, for refugees, and adjustment of status applicants. Immigration physicals are similar to routine physicals. The purpose of an immigration physical is to ensure that the patient has no health concerns that would require attention before immigrating.
