Immigration Medical Exam - Plano, Texas
Dr. Isaac Pugach is fully approved by USCIS to perform immigration medical exams, and he is considered a Designated Civil Surgeon, or immigration medical specialist, by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Immigration physical exam is required by USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) for certain individuals seeking permanent residence in the United States. This examination must be done by a medical doctor who is approved by USCIS to perform such physicals. After the performance of the immigration physical, if all the requirements are met an I-693 form will be completed.
This exam requires applicants to be free of certain infectious diseases, including tuberculosis (TB), syphilis, and gonorrhea which will require blood and urine testing. Although HIV was a mandatory test in the past, the law has changed, and since 2010, HIV is no longer required for immigration physical.
If the applicant is found to have an infectious condition that is of a public health concern, it must be treated before applicant can proceed to the next step in the immigration process. In addition, all applicants must have received all age appropriate vaccinations, as recommended by CDC (Centers for Disease Control).
Common medical conditions that are not a public health concern, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, are acceptable for USCIS; therefore, having these conditions will not interfere with the immigration process, and civil surgeon will complete the i693 form.
