Immigration Medical Exam

As an immigrant in the United States, you want to make sure that you have gone through all of the hoops necessary to remain in the country if that is your intent. In order to stay secure in the country, one of the processes you’ll need to go through is the immigration medical exam in some cases. Participating in this USCIS medical exam through specialized immigration doctors will help to ensure that you avoid inadmissibility that is health related.

Have you gone through all of the steps necessary to remain as a permanent resident in the U.S.? Or are you unsure? If you know you haven’t or are not certain, give us a call today at North County Health Services and we’ll be sure to help you verify that you’ve met all the health related requirements for being a permanent resident in the country.

Immigration Doctor

When you stop in for an immigration medical exam, an immigration doctor’s primary goal is to make sure that you do not have any dangerous diseases that are communicable, mental disorders that could harm you or others, or drug problems and other health related issues that would otherwise make it impossible for you to get into and stay in the country.

Taking part in the immigration physical exam is a double-bonus for you: not only will it help you to prove that you are fully eligible to enter and stay in the country, but you’ll also get a general overview of your current health status. This is like getting a regular wellness checkup that will provide you with information to help you make positive lifestyle and diet changes to improve your overall health.

There are certain types of diseases and medical conditions that doctors will be looking for:

  • Gonorrhea
  • Infectious Leprosy
  • Infectious Stage Syphilis
  • Active Tuberculosis
  • Diseases that will subject you to quarantine
  • Diseases that risk public health


However, not all diseases will make you inadmissible in the eyes of an immigration doctor. For example, diseases like cancer, cardiovascular disease, select mental illnesses, and other types of conditions won’t inherently rule you out of a permanent residency.

The immigration process is complicated and it’s important to meet with and talk with professional immigration doctors that are experienced with the process. You want to make sure that you are as equipped and prepared as possible prior to entering the country.
