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.
The cost of an office appointment is $375. We provide a $20 cash discount. Basic lab fees are included. Immunizations are often covered by health insurance; otherwise, the cost of vaccinations will be determined by how detailed your medical records are.
Schedule your test based on your attorney's advise or when you receive an RFE (Request For Evidence). To make an appointment, please call 913-787-5805
You will be interviewed, have a screening physical exam, and receive orders for your labs and vaccinations. The exam is directed toward finding evidence of diseases of a public health significance--things that are contagious or that would spread. You will not need to undress for the exam.
Only physical and psychiatric conditions or findings that would be considered to be of public health significance will affect your adjustment. All other conditions will be noted and reported but will not affect your adjustment.
Passport or other current government issued photo ID, COVID card, all other vaccination records you have available, tuberculosis (TB) testing and treatment records (if applicable).
TB infected applicants will incur a $50 office visit surcharge and a chest x-ray fee of about $80, more for young children who may need multiple x-ray views. Treatment for TB is provided for free by the state of Kansas.
Your interview, physical exam, initial required laboratories, and completion of the I-693 form.
You would hardly be the first! Don't worry! But you would almost certainly need a few vaccinations to complete the process.

Usually about 30 minutes, but please allow an hour.
There is usually no medical reason to delay your exam for pregnancy, but you should discuss this issue with your obstetrician and attorney.
