My 10-year old daughter and I went to St. Lukes last Dec. 20 bringing with me our passports, passport pictures with our names written at the back, 2 photocopies of printed schedule that I got online plus the original print-out, payment for me(P6,090.00) and my daughter(P4,914.00), a map that I got from US embassy website and a black pen. We arrived there at 7:30 am. The staff were friendly and they will give you directions on what to do next. They asked for my appointment letter and I told them that what I have was the schedule I printed online. They will accept it but they will write a note on my forms. I didn't mind just as long as they let us do our medical that day. The lady doctor who did our physical exam have this poker face and seems bored at what she was doing. She checked for scars on my wrists and she saw a tiny one. She asked what it was and I told her I got it from a cat who scratched my left arm long ago. She asked if I have history of TB or have been living with a person who has one, have taken marijuana, shabu or cocaine and all my answers were no. After 15 mins or so, we were glad to be out of her room. During our eye exam I found out that my daughter has 50/25 vision and she now needs glasses. I on the other hand has 20/25. They took my urine and blood sample and x-ray. They didn't do anything with my daughter except physical and eye exam. We presented our PDS forms at the check out counter and told us to come back on Dec. 26 for my daughter's Tuberculin Skin Test and our vaccination. They couldn't do it the next day because of the Christmas holidays. They needed like to 3 days to read the results. They gave us back our passports and official receipts with a note stapled saying we come back on 8 am Wednesday. We were out of the clinic by 10:30 am.

I hope this is helpful for people who will be having their medical.

lani

its 10 pm here and we just got home from manila. we were there for 3 days and we got the results as well. i needed to have a 2nd xray cause they saw some abnormality in the first xray. i guess they just want to make sure that i am clean. i was worried what might that be. i dont smoke or drink at all. the second xray was okay and all went well after that.

i hope to see you there too. just look for a woman with a 10-year old kid with long hair and that is us. i hope we don't get any delays with our visa. this waiting is killing me. happy new year too :)
