Dr. Evan Davies is designated as a Civil Surgeon for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. By this designation, he is authorized to perform medical examinations and give necessary immunizations for aliens applying for adjustment of status or Permanent Resident Status (Green Card).
A medical examination is necessary as a part of the application process for an alien applying for adjustment of status. The purpose of the medical examination is to evaluate the applicant's health status and to determine if they have any conditions that might preclude a change in status. The results of the examination will be provided to an Immigration officer and may also be shared with health departments and other public health or cooperating medical authorities.
The following tests are required by the US Citizenship and Immigration Service, or USCIS (formerly the Immigration & Naturalization Service, or INS).
The physical examination is required for persons of all ages. The examination requirements are determined by your age and your immunization record.
An adult examination (15 years or older) typically consists of the following:
- A Physical Examination
- A blood test for tuberculosis and syphilis (RPR)
- Immunizations are dependent on age and medical history
A pediatric examination (children 14 years of age or younger) does not usually require blood testing and typically consists of the following:
- A physical examination
- A blood test for tuberculosis (two years old and older)
- A review and update of the pediatric immunizations
Certain immunizations are required by the USCIS. If you are not able to produce acceptable proof that you have had the immunizations or the diseases themselves, you may have the immunizations administered by our Business Health Clinic at an additional charge, your health department or personal physician.
