Immigration Physicals

Sinan Haddad, MD has been designated as a Civil Surgeon by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) and now performs affordable, quality immigration physicals at both locations.

You will come into the office for initial bloodwork and follow up once those have resulted on a designated day Dr. Haddad is in the office to complete your physical.

Depending on the outcome of your blood test, it may be possible to complete an immigration physical within several days to a week.

What to Bring

One of the main functions of a Civil Surgeon is to verify that you are current on your CDC recommended vaccinations. If you have any medical records of previous vaccinations, please bring those with you. Also please bring your completed portion of your I-693 form with you.

Guilford Immediate Care will keep your immigration physical paperwork until all tests have been completed. After this the paperwork will be released to you in a sealed envelope. Please do not open this envelope as it is required that it be presented to the USCIS while sealed.

Once you have submitted your required paperwork the determination is made by a USCIS officer after reviewing all relevant records, including the report of the medical examination.
