Medical Exam Review - Regina Maria - Bucharest Romania

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, wanted to share my experience with my Medical Exam at Regina Maria in Bucharest, Romania.

My appointment was at 9:30 AM and we arrived around 9:15 AM. There were a lot of people there, but apparently there is a priority for visa exams, therefore we only waited after checking in for around 15 minutes. At the reception desk, I was asked to provide my Identity card and that was all until I went into the back.

There were four total steps during the Medical exam.

1) A nurse came out and asked the crowd if anyone was there for a visa. I raised my hand and then went into a room and she asked me my birthday and took one vial of blood. This part only took about 3 minutes.

2) After they drew my blood, we went down the hall about two doors and were third in line to get my chest x-rays. At that room they asked for my passport, my age, and if I was pregnant. I was asked to remove my shirt and bra for the x-ray and it was over in just about 5 minutes as well.

3) Finally, with the x-ray and blood test done, I went to wait to see Dr. Toma. We were the third person again, and she was absolutely wonderful. She was very nice, friendly, and could tell I was nervous. She was laughing and smiling the whole time. My husband was with me and we wanted to make sure she had my name written correctly because my family doctor forgot my suffix and I think I excitedly told her not to forget it too loud. I apologized and said that I just had a louder voice than normal and she laughed and said it was ok. She really made this less stressful. Here is what she asked and what I was required to provide :

- She took my note from the family doctor (IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET THIS) stating that I have no serious physical or mental diseases

- She took my 3 passport sized photos(NVC Case #, Name, Signature, and Birth date)

- She took my passport

- She took my Vaccination Record

- She asked about my allergies, which I said no, except for Pollen

- She asked if I had ever used or abused drugs or alcohol

- She asked if I had any surgeries (Even simple surgeries)

- She took my height, weight, and blood pressure.

- She also checked my lungs with the listening thing

- She put pressure on my stomach to see if there was any pain and asked if it hurts

That's all I can remember, but that is a general overview of the time I spent with the doctor. It wasn't more than 10 minutes maybe?

4) We arrived at 9:15 AM and we were finished with the medical exam by 10:30. It was much less painful than we anticipated. Dr. Toma told me to come back after 3:30 PM for the results. We came back at 3:15 and she was working on peoples packets so we waited in the lobby until she called me from behind the reception desk. Last few notes :

- IMPORTANT - She will give you the big sealed envelope with x-rays, blood results, and overview that you CANNOT OPEN and a small piece of paper with your vaccines that you must take with you to the interview and to the states. You will need these later.

- She did not review the results with me or provide me with any form of a copy. She did verbally tell me that everything is OK and not to worry. I took this as a good Medical Exam and the results were fine.

Overall, it was a very pleasant experience at Regina Maria and Dr. Toma was a very professional individual. Based on her final remark before I left, it would appear that my Medical Exam turned out good :)

I hope this everyone. I would recommend this hospital to any future Romanian applicants.
