Immigration physical exams at Triad Internal Medicine are medical exams required by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to apply for a Green Card or United States Citizenship. The purpose of the exam is to ensure you’re healthy, properly vaccinated, and don’t have any communicable diseases that may spread to others.
Bring with you the following to an immigration physical exam:
Be ready to discuss your medical history during the physical. Note that most insurance companies do not cover immigration physical exams.
During your exam, a Triad Internal Medicine provider weighs you and checks your vital signs. They review your medications, immunization history, medical history, lifestyle, and more.
During the exam, a specialist evaluates your ears, eyes, breathing, throat, neck, heartbeat, limbs, and reflexes to look for signs of illnesses, injuries, or diseases.
You may also need to be screened for tuberculosis, gonorrhea, syphilis, or other communicable diseases. Based on your medical history and symptoms, you may need additional diagnostic testing and vaccinations, such as the COVID-19 series, to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading certain diseases.
You might need a drug test, vision screening, or hearing screening, as well as treatment if you have a medical concern.
After the exam, your Triad Internal Medicine provider fills out the required paperwork, seals it in an envelope, and provides a copy for your records. Keep the original copy sealed when submitting your application for citizenship or a Green Card.
Call the Triad Internal Medicine office at any time with questions or if you need additional medical evaluations. It’s vital to see your primary care specialist at least once yearly to complete routine check-ups and preventive medicine to reduce the risk of medical complications.
