Our highly trained physicians will conduct various health checks during the examination to ensure the patient is ready for the next steps required to receive a green card or citizenship. Applicants filing for a green card must submit USCIS Form I-639 (Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record). A USCIS-approved civil surgeon must complete this form.

Same-day immigration medical exam appointments are available. Translation services are available for Spanish and Farsi. For appointments, call (713) 988-3921.

Health Tips & Info

What should I bring to my exam?
  • A government-issued photo identification document, e.g., a passport, green card, or driver’s license.
  • Any copies of foreign or domestic immunization and vaccination records if available.
What else should I expect?
  • If you do not have any history of your vaccination and immunization records, we can provide you with all the necessary vaccines during your appointment.
  • If tuberculosis test results come back positive, a digital chest X-ray service is available at our facility.
  • Only USCIS civil surgeon doctors can sign and seal the USCIS I-693 Form. Once the envelope is sealed, it cannot be opened by the applicant. Hillcroft Physicians will provide you with a photocopy set of all the documentation.
  • Lab results come in within 5-6 business days. In most cases, the sealed envelope can be picked up within ten business days (Monday–Friday) during our business hours of 8 A.M. to 5 P.M.
