What Tests are Performed for Your Exam?
An immigration medical examination covers key areas: your medical history, a physical examination, blood test, vaccination (if required).
We’ll discuss your health history, including any medical conditions that you may had in past.
Dr. Ginzburg will conduct comprehensive medical evaluations. He will also do a blood test as required by USCIS.
USCIS requires that all patients provide record of immunization. If you have an official record of vaccines given in another country, bring it with you and Dr Ginzburg will review it. If not, Dr Ginzburg can administer any missing vaccines in his office.
