Review - Medisys Medical in Montreal for K-1

Done with the medical! Woot! That's one weight off my shoulders.

When I took the appointement, the guy on the phone was really friendly and helpful, and told me clearly all I needed to bring to the medical with me.

You need :

-3 passport pictures ( I saw some people getting their pictures taken care of on the spot by one of the secretaries, but I don't know if you can do that for the american visa, or if it was for something else completely. )

- The copy of your packet 4 letter (it should have your case number at the bottom)

- Copy of the confirmation for the interview date

- List of your vaccinations

- List of my prescriptions, or the med's bottle themselves. ( I was asked to bring that but they never asked for it once I got there.)

- Your Passport

- With taxes, it ended up costing 270 some dollars.

I heard the secretaries talking about someone who had their case number and date for the interview but didn't have the letter with them, and they had to refuse him.

My appointement was for 10am. The traffic was good, no problem for that. There's pay parking ( 9$ for 3 hours) on the streets leading to the building, but my mom decided to pass those and try to get closer to the actual place in the hopes there was spots available there. There seemed to be about 3 spots directly in front of it (all taken of course) and then the streets around it all require a 'vignette'. We ended up doing a lot of driving around because it's all one ways around there and finally were able to trace back and take those spots that we had seen earlier.

I got there at 10:15. The secretary made photocopies of all my documents and gave me a form to fill. Pretty easy questions, and there's nothing very scary there. Have you ever been hospitalized, or suffer from heart problems, leprosy, what meds you take and why, if you have a history of substance abuse, or psychiatric problems. I brought the forms back to the secretary and was called almost right away by the nurse.

She was very nice. First thing that we went through was the Eye test. You just had to stand behind a line and read the letters on the board with and without glasses. I couldn't even read the first line without mine, doh XD, she then takes your weight and height and then asks you to sit down. She takes your heart rate ( mine was high because I was stressed) and your pressure. She wasn't able to hear correctly to take my pressure with the first band she had, so she took the bigger one out and pumped that thing so full of air. Ow! She then said that my pressure was super good, and she wouldn't have needed to squeeze it that hard after all XD. She explained to me that all my vaccines were up to date and since we weren't in flu season, I wouldn't need the flu shot. Woohoo! She then took a single vial of blood, (she asked me if I have a history of fainting during blood tests, first). I used to be really scared of needles and I also have veins that like to escape, but she got it on the first try and it didn't hurt at all smile.png yay. I then went back into the waiting room.

Maybe one minute passed and I was called for the x-rays. I took my shirt and bra off and put the gown on. They took 2 pictures, one from the back, and one from the side. They make you strike weird poses and hold your breath, but nothing painful. I put my clothes back on and was sent back to the waiting room. I gave the secretary the paper confirming the x-ray was done and sat.

I had to wait about 40 minutes before being called by the doctor. I think he was on break though because the last person he had seen had gotten out of his office 30 minutes before that. He was very down to business, but nice enough. Asked me about the time I was hospitalised (kidney stones) and then proceeded to the exam. I was a bit nervous before going in because I have fibromyalgia and I thought maybe for some reason in could be a problem, but he didn't even mention it. Like always, I worked myself up for no reason. He told me to put the gown on, but to keep my panties and bra on. He listened to my breath and my heart, checked my ears and my throat, touched my neck to check the lymph nodes and then my stomach area and that was it.

You have to go back in the waiting room and the secretary calls you again to make sure you got all your exams done and then you are on your way. I was out by 11h45. I was fast and people were nice. Nothing to stress about ^.^

nice thorough review, thanks! smile.png

“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”
