Immigration Medical Exams

An immigration medical examination is performed as part of the application process for becoming a United States citizen or permanent resident. Either a uniformed public health officer or civil surgeon, such as our Dr. Gordon, must perform the exam.

If you need an immigration medical exam our immigration doctor Steven Gordon will take good care of you. Dr. Gordon made the decision to dedicate 80% of his private practice to the performance of immigration medical exams in memory of his father who was a refugee and Holocaust survivor.
