All doctors REFUSE just to fill out parts 2&5 of I-693

:angry:

Hello,

I try to find a doctor in Alaska who will want to fill parts 2 & 5 of I-693.

I already had all my medical examination and shots and tests done overseas, so as it is said on USCIS website:

What if I am a K nonimmigrant visa holder and already had a medical exam overseas?

A. K-1 fiancé(e) or a K-2 child of a K-1 fiancé(e), or as a

B. K-3 spouse of a U.S. citizen or a K-4 child of a K-3

spouse of a U.S. citizen, and

C. You received a medical examination prior to admission, then-

You are not required to have another medical

examination as long as your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination.

a. You are not required to have another medical examination as long as your Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, is filed within one year of your overseas medical examination.

b. You will, however, be required to complete Part 1, Information about you, and submit the vaccination section of Part 2 with your adjustment of status application. A designated civil surgeon must complete the vaccination section and Part 5, the Civil Surgeon's Certification.

I then just want the doctor to fill parts 2 and 5 and sign the I-693.

However, I called of the USCIS doctors and they all REFUSE just to sign the form for me??!!! They want me to have the medical done again?? Can they do that?????????????? :crying:

I read to them exactly what was explained in USCIS website, and they didn't trust me or something. One even hang up right in my face...

What should I do then???

Please, help!!! :wacko:

I tried to call doctor Arnold in Texas but nodoby never answers.. Do you know how I can contact them???

Before I went to the CS I have printed the instructions for the I-693 and instructions to the I-485. Showed the doctor my visa (K-1) and literally read and showed him the instructions (the part from the I-485 form that talks about me not needing another medical exam, and the part from the form I-693 that says that I, as a K-1 only need part 1, 2 and 5). The doctor was speechless and signed everything I needed.

My plan B in case he would refuse to fill out the forms would be to threaten him I will report to USCIS. I was just do tired and stressed out from dealing with so many as.h..e doctors that I was determined to get this done right there and then...

I'm not sure how Dr. Arnold does the trip now. A friend here used her in April and all she required was for him to fax her the DS 3025, records of TD shot and record of TB skin test. I think he paid $20. She mailed him the I-693 in a sealed envelope. Whole trip took about a week.

Problem now may be that additional vaccinations are now required since May 5, 2008. I doubt if most DCSs are aware of such tho.

If you don't think you have all the needed vaccines, and you want to mail your records to be transcribed by a CS, or go to a CS in person, one approach could be to print off the technical instructions to CSs regarding vaccinations. Take it to your local health department or a personal physician along with the vaccine records you do have http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dq/civil_ti_vacc_2008_two.htm If you go armed with sufficient information, along with the website address, so they can look it up for themselves if necessary, you should be able to obtain any additionally needed vaccines. Health departments are also experts on TB testing. They are also used to getting their information from the CDC, as they are considered the authority regarding many health department functions. Small physicians offices may not have the appropriate vaccines on hand, as they often have to be purchased in big lots and the physician ends up losing money on them. A personal physician is likely to give you an exam, too, and charge you for an office visit. Health departments usually charge for the cost of the vaccine only.

After that, all of your records could be mailed to the CS to be transcribed, that is, if Dr. Arnold still does this, or you could visit one and insist on transcription only.

I hope this makes sense and is helpful to someone. It is good to establish a relationship with a personal physician here in the states, but health departments come in very handy for vaccines and some other services. My husband has the box from the first polio vaccine ever sent to our county in a display case in his office!

Yeah, I think that is what I am going to do... That way they will understand they don't know everything and hopefully they will agree to sign up the form. I have the same plan B than yours! Anyway, I am going to try to recall USCIS and ask them if it is normal that doctors refuse to do what they are supposed to!

We did the same thing. I printed out everything before going to the CS here in Memphis. His admin had said the children needed medical exam, I read to her (and showed her) where they were exempt because they had received medicals within the last year. Her response was "OK, good enough for me."
