What Is Required for An Immigration Physical Exam?
Before your immigration physical exam, please make sure you have all the required paperwork, including:
- Valid government-issued picture ID (driver's license, passport)

Requirements for an immigration physical include:
Please note that we CANNOT perform a Tuberculosis (TB) skin test within 30 days of any live vaccines, such as MMR, Varicella, or a TB skin test. If you have had any of these vaccines or had a TB skin test recently, you must wait 30 days to have your immigration exam. The TB skin test MUST be placed and read by the civil surgeon doing your immigration physical. If you've had a positive TB skin test in the past, we must have documented proof, including the date it was placed, read, and the size of the reaction. Without this documentation, we must place the TB skin test again.

What Should I Expect After an Immigration Physical?
Following the physical, the Clinical Research of South Nevada practitioner or civil surgeon will prepare a medical report summarizing the findings of the examination, including information about your medical history, physical examination results, and vaccination status. This report will be provided to you in a sealed envelope, which should not be opened. The sealed envelope is an important document that needs to be submitted to the USCIS as part of your immigration application. Once the USCIS receives your immigration application, they will review all the submitted documents. If there are no significant health concerns, the medical examination should not typically impede the processing of your application. However, if any health-related issues are identified during the physical, the USCIS may request additional documentation, further medical evaluation, or specialized testing, which may cause delays.

Excellent Dr handled all my illnesses I can finally walk with right meds
The office was able to get me in with no problem, even with me trying to schedule the same day! Just came in with some allergy issues that were bothering me and not improving. I was worried about why they were happening but the doctor there was able to see me and help me figure out what was going on. He also followed up with my pharmacy and made sure I got what I needed. Overall great experience!
