Help with Scheduling Medical Exams (Colombia)

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We just got our interview date of 6/9/2010 and will be scheduling our medical exams soon.

My question is will we be able to schedule both the Lab Exam and the Doctor Exam on the same day? Our date is on a Wednesdays and I was thinking about scheduling both on the Monday which would give us Tuesday to resolve any unforseen issues. If its not possible I'll just have to bite the bullet and try and get the lab done Friday and have the Medical Exam on Monday.

Mi amiga yakad ayuda me por favor :-)

Hi Mike101,

Of course you can schedule the lab exams and the Doctor same day, you just have to tell the lady when u call to get the appointment for the Doctor exam the day of your interview and she will schedule you and same day of the medical exam you can go in the morning to get the lab exams done..

Blessings!

Actually, you only need an appointment with the doctor since the lab exams are given on a first come, first served basis. Call both doctors to see if they have appointments available for 06/07 in the afternoon. Your fiancée can go to the lab office early in the morning, before 7 a.m., get her lab tests done and then go to get her medical in the afternoon that same day.

Hi Mike,

sorry for delay, I was travelling to USA :dance::dance:

You can schedule the lab exams and the doctor same day, I did it that way and the next day I had the interview. I could not make an appointment With the Dr. Gonzalez because she does not deliver the exams the same day, so I had the appointment with Dr. Roa


We can all make a difference. Please recycle

For some reason I thought you were already in the USA but Welcome!!. I wish the best for your and your prometido.

I thank you again for all of your help with the process. We are gong to schedule our appointment with Dr Roa as a lot of people have recommended him.

So how was your experience going through Immigration? I'll probably have my Fiancee enter in Miami...

stupid question, but i'm new and just getting started so...

where do the medical exams take place? Bogota only? My fiancee lives in Cargtagena, and I'll be meeting here there when (hopefully) we get a interview date. But I'm sure it would be easier if the exams can be performed in other places before the interview.

TIA

Unfortunately both of the doctors on the list to give the medical exams are based in Bogota. My fiancee is in Barranquilla so we are going to get there a few days before the interview to get the exams.

the experience was easy, took only 5 minutes with the immigration officer, I gave him the envelope, took the finger prints and he gave me the I-94 form and then said "Welcome to America"
