In order to apply for a U.S. green card (lawful permanent residence), you must undergo a medical examination. The purpose behind the examination is to ensure that you are admissible to the U.S. on public health grounds.

However, you cannot simply undergo a medical examination with your regular doctor. Instead, a civil surgeon who has been specially designated by the relevant immigration authorities must perform the required exam. The civil surgeons who are qualified to perform green card medical examinations receive special, ongoing training about immigration issues. WOHA’s Civil Surgeons will perform your exam, review paperwork and put together a packet needed for USCIS and a copy for your records.
