The medical examination is not a full and complete physical examination. Its purpose is to screen only for certain medical conditions relevant to U.S. immigration law. Although in the course of the examination, the panel physician might uncover other matters related to your health, the physician is not required to examine you for any conditions except those the U.S. Public Health Service specifies for U.S. immigration purposes, nor is the physician required to provide you with any diagnosis or treatment. As such, you should not consider this examination to be a substitute for a full physical examination, consultation, diagnosis, or treatment by your primary health care provider.
On the day of the medical appointment, the applicant must bring his/her passport (or other photo identification) and appointment letter to the doctors office.
The medical examination will include a medical history, physical examination, chest X-ray and blood tests for syphilis.
