Definitely shop it around! I got a wide variety of prices. Doublecheck a site like Yelp for reviews on the doctors. Make sure you find out total costs, including immunizations, and how long the turnaround is. Make sure they give you a photocopy of the document inside the sealed envelope, and check the document for errors or omissions before you leave the doctor's office. Be sure to send in the sealed envelope with your forms, not a photocopy. Be prepared that the doctor might try to trip you up with questions as though a border agent. And don't go into the doctor's office looking or acting stoned. That's a summary of preventing every bad outcome I heard about.

12/24/2010 I proposed. She accepted and stayed.

02/25/2011 Married!

03/19/2012 FINALLY submitted the AOS paperwork: I-130, I-485, I-765, etc.

03/23/2012 Received notification that USCIS has received everything.

03/26/2012 Biometrics Appointment Notice: April 23, 2012.

04/02/2012 NOA's received. Now we wait...

04/23/2012 Biometrics completed.

05/18/2012 EAD card mailed but not yet received.

06/06/2012 Rough interview but we think we're approved! Website says i485 status "Card Production".

06/12/2012 We received the "Welcome the United States" letters! Website says Green Card was mailed.

LIMBO: Green card lost in mail. Facing the possibility of paying hundreds in fees and basically repeating the entire process.

All good now! USPS lost it, then found it.

Yes, definitely shop around for a civil surgeon who knows the drill for K-1ers. If you had your shots at St. Lukes, don't let them talk you into more shots or another medical exam. All you need is the transcription service they provide.

We paid about $35 for a civil surgeon to transcribe the info from the DS-3025 onto the I-693. It took about 15 minutes in their office.

For what it's worth, I had more success googling "civil surgeon in (my city)". The USCIS had dozens of names but some of them weren't even good numbers.
