I never received a copy of my DS-3025.

I'm about to apply for adjustment of status and now I realize I need a copy of a DS-3025. The panel physician never gave me a copy of this form and now the doctor isn't even replying to my emails. What do I do?

You need to do I-693 all over again or have someone come to the doctor to ask what's up.

USCIS doesn't keep a copy of the DS-3025?

You would think the panel physicians would be a bit more competent than this and provide a copy. I think they even told my fiancee directly that she didn't need a copy when she asked.

No. This is not so.

OP> If you are sure you had all the required vaccinations at the time of the K-1 medical, then you can go ahead and file without it. Yes, a copy of the DS-3025 is included with all your other medical documents, which were in the sealed envelope you handed over at your POE and are sent to the USCIS.

What if I don't have a DS-3025?

If you are positive that you got the needed shots, then actually mailing in a DS-3025 photocopy is not necessary. The original form is with your other medical results and was turned over to USCIS at POE. That's actually the one that counts because it remained in the "chain of custody" so you didn't have an opportunity to alter it. The photocopy isn't really an official copy and is more for a reminder that you got complete at your visa exam. Of course without having a copy, you don't have the opportunity to see if the rest of the form was completed correctly.

KayDeeCee,

If we file for adjustment of status and it turns out that we didn't have all the required vaccinations... would we just receive an RFE and have to go to a physician to get the I-693 done? Or would it entirely mess up our adjustment process?

I showed my wife the DS-3025 and all the vaccinations on it and she claims that she's already had them in her life. And she said that the physician who did the medical exam in her country didn't do any vaccinations but did do a blood test. Would the blood test reveal all the vaccinations she's had in life in the sealed packet USCIS received?

Not sure if I have to quote you for you to be notified about my reply to you. So, just in case...

Can't you call up the doctor in the home country to request a copy of DS-3025?

You paid for the examination, you should have a copy of your own.

Same thing for I-693, if you go to the civil surgeon, please request a copy of I-693 for your own safe keeping.

You would just get an RFE and then would need to see a civil surgeon for the missing vaccinations and to get an I-693.

If they did not do any vaccinations at the time of the K-1, then it is possible there is not a properly filled out DS-3025. My husband received no vaccinations and he got a useless blank DS-3025.

If you can find a civil surgeon that will just do the vaccinations without insisting on another medical she does not need, then that might be your best option. If you cannot find one from the USCIS civil surgeon finder tool, then you could try this thread > http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/231026-civil-surgeons-who-dont-rip-you-off/page-13

If all was well with vaccinations it will have been noted on the 3025 and USCIS will have the original. If there is something missing you'll get an RFE and deal with it then. Thats what I'd do if I were happy that everything was correct on the original 3025.

That'd be nice. But in reality, I emailed the panel physician three times over a span of time and each email was entirely ignored. And then we had my in-laws who live in my wife's country still contact her. She was extremely rude to them and lied by saying she would lose her job and my wife would be deported if she sent a DS-3025. Is there some way I can report her incompetence?

Well she doesn't want to cooperate with you, don't mind her and focus on your AOS. Just submit your I-485 without I-693 for now. Worst scenario is RFE for I-693, then you can visit a civil surgeon to do it. Hopefully the brown envelope has enough forms, and they are corrected and completed.

It is just sad that we have to rely on an incompetent lying doctor in hopes that she properly filled out the form. Which I'm doubting she did it the correct way now that she's revealed her work ethic.

You could probably file a complaint against the panel physician for unprofessional conduct with the US Consulate in Lebanon.

I had medical examination twice for K1. Each time I requested a copy of the DS-3025 form and they obliged with no issue at all.

Otherwise how would I know what they wrote in the DS-3025.

or if I am missing vaccinations for AOS . In the end, I was missing a MMR shot.

------------------------------------

Right now, you have 2 options like what the rest have pointed out for you.

1) Go to a civil surgeon to fill up I-693 form, for a peace of mind

2) Wait and see if you will get RFE or not. No RFE, you saved the money.

So my fiance had his medical done in Montreal within the last year and he did not need any additional vaccinations (except a flu shot which they gave him) but he did not receive a copy of the DS-3025. I read above that it should have been sent to USCIS after the CPB officer examined everything at the POE so it shouldn't be a problem (hopefully), BUT does he still need to attempt to fill out an I-693 to include in his AOS packet or just leave that form out entirely? Thanks!
