Question re: medical exam w/ Dr. Cheema in Vancouver

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I've searched through many of the consulate/medical reviews on VJ, but I'm not really finding many detailed answers to my question and am hoping to get some feedback from anybody who has done their medical with Dr. Cheema in Vancouver. I have read that the medical is "pretty basic" and such, but I had a traumatizing experience as a teenager when it came to a pelvic exam and since then physicals of any kind have been really stressful for me, even with a female doctor, let alone a male one. My medical is next week on the 6th and interview on March 10th, and I honestly haven't even thought to worry about the interview itself because I'm so afraid about the medical. Could anybody shed some (detailed) light on what exactly the medical entails so I know how to be prepared? Are you required to fully strip, do you wear a gown, etc.? I've read different standards from different doctors so am looking for answers specifically regarding Dr. Cheema.

Thanks in advance for any specifics. I'd just like to be prepared mentally so I'm not caught off guard.

Hi Dance,

I didn't have to disrobe during my exam. It's mostly a conversation with the usual blood pressure check and that light thingy shone into your ears and eyes.

Dr. Cheema does an abdominal exam but he just ask you to pull your pants down a bit and lift up your shirt. There's nothing invasive and he never gets too close to your tingly bits. A nurse is present during this pay off the exam, too.
