What is an immigration medical exam?
An immigration medical exam is an essential requirement for any individual, regardless of sex or age. Anyone who plans to immigrate to or acquire a permanent residence card (green card) in the United States.
A green card physical is a routine part of the immigration application process. It helps determine the health of an immigrant as per the rules and regulations.
Who can provide an immigration medical exam?
Only USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) designated civil surgeons can perform these physical exams on immigrants for i693 purposes. Nao Medical has a USCIS on staff that can help to perform your physical exam.
The immigration medical exam is a requirement for applicants wanting to naturalize. Anyone filing for an adjustment of status (I-485) needs this done. Then they can become lawful permanent residents in the U.S. or become a Green Card holder.

Open or tampered envelopes will result in immediate rejection.

If you would like to know ahead of time, please call the number on the back of your insurance card so a representative may let you know which coronavirus test is covered by your insurance plan.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.
