About The USCIS Immigration Exam
The immigration medical exam, also known as an immigration physical, can only be conducted by a designated civil surgeon. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) grants permission to qualified physicians (M.D. or D.O.) to conduct these examinations.
Dr. Louis Huesmann M.D. is a USCIS designated civil surgeon and can conduct your immigration physical at Passport Health Brentwood, Tenn.
Form I-693 is used to report examination results. During the Immigration Medical Exam the following are completed:
- Full review of vaccination records, commonly including a TB skin test and blood draw.
- A physical and mental health screening.
- Depending on the applicant’s personal medical history and other health factors, additional screening or testing may be required.
- A second visit, typically 48 hours later (but could take up to 7 days depending on the visit), where the applicant will be seen in clinic for a follow-up.
Passport Health Brentwood stocks all required vaccinations in clinic which can be given on the first or second visit. The applicant is provided the completed Form I-693 in a sealed envelope for delivery to USCIS. We also provide a second copy of the I-693 form in an unsealed envelope for the applicant’s personal records.
