$200 for I-693????

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I called

Dr. Martin A Malz, Millennium Medicine

612-614 Clifton Avenue, Collingdale, PA 19023

(610) 583-5500

today and they told me to bring $200 for blood works and tb skin test and i told the secretary that i already have my medical in the Philippines and have my DS-3025 in me. But she still insisted me. Now I'm so frustrated if I'm gonna file the aos package today and and just wait for the rfe on my I-693, because everything is complete and ready to send except for that. I have read others that they only paid like less than $50 for the civil surgeon. And I can't pay $200 for the repet medical or whatever. It's unfair!

Is anyone here living around delaware county PA, that can help me where to find decent civil surgeon or whoever has consideration please.

Please give me an advice. thank you.

If you are from PA, go to Dr. Sudhir Khanna of Shamokin, PA. Just google his number because I don't have it with me right now. I only paid $25. They will ask you to fax your DS 2305 and then they will tell you whether you need any shots or not. I needed one, and paid only $10. After that, they will transcribe it and seal it, and also let you keep an unsealed copy. They are very professional and I had no problems. I don't know how far Shamokin is from you (It was an hour away for us) but it was worth it because everyone else we called wanted us to have a new medical. Goodluck! :)

so you mean you didn't went to their office for physical appearance or so? How long they process your I-693? thanks.

No, I was asked to fax it first, then they told me I needed one shot (which I did), and I went to the health dept for the shot and faxed them the proof that I had it done. Then they asked me to come in and it took just about 5 minutes to fill it up :) It took me about two weeks only because I set an appointment with the health dept to get the shot done, but if you don't need any shots or are willing to pay extra to get the needed shots then I don't see why it would take longer than a day or two, a few days at most because you will also need to schedule the appointment with dr. khanna and i don't know how busy he is

The Doctor is 2hrs and 26mins away from us. I wonder if we could process everything through fax and telephone only.

Just an FYI - doing it by phone/fax only is against the rules, they MUST see you in person. There was a popular doc by the name of Dr Arnold that did all their I-693's for a really decent price but did them all by fax. The doc was removed as a CS and I believe I remember reading that people who used that doc at the time it was discovered were forced to go and get another I-693 done.
