All applicants filing for adjustment of status to that of a lawful, permanent resident (green card) must submit the I-693 form, completed by a civil surgeon. Our doctor is authorized by the U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services to conduct such examinations. The exam itself usually takes up to two business days (or more depending on on the individual), and includes: a blood, urine, and TB test, as well as a completed immunization form. Individuals coming to our office for this exam should bring a Driver's ID or Passport.
