Immigration Medical Exam
Dr. Goldson-Prophete is recognized as a Civil Surgeon by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) and is authorized to perform immigration medical exams.
When you apply for a green card (adjustment of status) in the United States, you usually need to have a medical examination. The exam must be done by a doctor (civil surgeon) who is authorized by the USCIS.
Bring the following to your medical exam:
- Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record
- Government-issued photo identification, such as a valid passport or driver’s license. If you are 14 years old or younger, bring identification that shows your name, date and place of birth and parent’s full name. Possible forms of identification include your passport, birth certificate (with an English translation) or an affidavit.
- Vaccination or immunization record (such as DT, DTP, DTaP, Td, Tdap, OPV, IPV, MMR, Hib, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, varicella, pneumococcal influenza, rotavirus and meningococcal disease)

If you decide to schedule a virtual visit:
To make your visit as effective as possible, it is recommended that you at least have access to a home thermometer. Additionally, an automatic blood pressure monitor would be helpful for anyone, but in particular those who are over 60, have high blood pressure or suspected COVID-19 cases. If you are diabetic, it would be beneficial to have a glucometer.
