The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires that all adults and children applying for adjustment of immigration status in the US have a medical examination conducted by an authorized physician, known as a designated civil surgeon.

Your USCIS medical exam is similar to a routine physical. Your Downtown Medical Group physician carefully reviews your medical history and performs a comprehensive physical exam to determine if you have signs of a health condition or any communicable illnesses, such as tuberculosis.
Your doctor also asks you a series of questions to assess your mental and emotional health and check for signs of substance abuse or behaviors that could be harmful to yourself or others.
When your exam is complete, your doctor completes your I-693 form and seals it in an envelope. You must submit this sealed envelope to USCIS.
