Methuen Immigration Physicals at AFC Urgent Care
Immigration Physicals in Methuen, MA
AFC Urgent Care is proud to offer Immigration Medicals (also known as Green Card Medicals) to immigration applicants in and around Swampscott, Lynn, Peabody, Marblehead, Clifton and Revere areas in Massachusetts. The immigration medical exam is a very important step in many long-term visa applications and our doctors have been certified as designated civil surgeons in our area to conduct these physicals by USCIS.
What to expect
A minimum of two visits are required for each immigration physical.
Visit 1: The first visit can be scheduled any day of the week and is with a Medical Assistant, to review your paperwork and begin some of the required medical testing. During this visit, the Medical Assistant will collect all the necessary documentation and record it on your I-693 form.
Visit 2: The second visit will be with your Civil Surgeon to complete your physical and obtain any necessary immunizations. This is typically scheduled about 5-10 days after the initial visit, in order for lab results to come back.
Additional visits may be necessary depending on the Civil Surgeon schedule and test results. When you come to your appointment, please arrive 30 minutes early for paperwork to be filled out. During the exam, the Civil Surgeon will review health history and conduct a full body examination. For females, a female staff member will be present in the room if there is a male Civil Surgeon. Once health history is reviewed with the Civil Surgeon, he or she will inform the Medical Assistant to give any further vaccinations, immunizations or blood draws.
Once all reports have been received and reviewed, you will be notified that the documents are ready to be signed.
What you need to bring
Patients are advised to bring the following to their appointment:
- Government issued picture ID such as a driver’s license or passport (if physical is for a child, the child will need photo ID as well. Parent ID will not be accepted)
