What are the sequences of events that will take place the day of the visit?     

1- You will sign in at the front desk and you will be welcomed by our friendly receptionist.

2- She will request identification (Driver license or passport), will copy them, and give them back to you. If you already filled out the forms from our website please hand it to her and also sign it in front of her. For 14 years and older the person on the form must sign not the parents. If the child is younger than 14 then one of the parents must sign. If you did not fill the form out ahead of time, she will hand you the forms and explain to you how to fill them. She will also give you a green paper that would explain most of the things written on this website.

3- We will call you to the exam room. If it's a family, we have a family exam room that will accommodate the entire family.

Finally, if you are 15 years and older, you will get the blood and urine test at a local Quest lab. Please eat before you come in.  After that, you will check out and pay by any form of credit card including American Express, Health Saving Account or cash, no check accepted and insurance does not cover immigration medical exam. 

6- The entire visit should take about 30-45 minutes per person.  If you have a family of 2-6 patients it will take longer.
