Medical Doctor in London

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, we really need help with what to do about the Medical Doctor in London. My fiance went to his appointment in London in August and had his medical. He and I both have Asperger Syndrome and he took his paperwork about it and he was honest with the doctor. She was making him very nervous in the medical, and he said she very stressful to talk to, but he did the best he could to answer her questions. She said she wanted more paperwork for his history and that was delayed for a couple of weeks because of his needing extra support to go to doctor's appointments, and the general slowness of getting help in Scotland. Finally after sending the Medical Doctor in London the extra paperwork, now she wants him to go back to London for a psychiatric evaluation. The only doctor available was on Holiday until October 6 and my fiance made the first appointment for then. I am really worried and very stressed out by so much delay being done by this Medical Doctor over my fiance's condition which was explained from the very beginning. He will not be a public charge as my family has already been helped by my family with affidavit of support forms to express more than enough proof that he will be supported during moving to the US to live with me. The petition expires in October but he will still be dealing with this Medical Doctor at Knightsbridge and her requirements by that time.

What happens to my petition if it expires while this Doctor in the Knightsbridge keeps delaying my fiance? We haven't seen each other for 14 months and he really wants to come for a visit but we are not sure if we will lose our visa petition as we have already had to wait over a year and it would devastate us both. Can that doctor just keep wasting our time with more and more delays? Is there anything I could do about this to help, as this is affecting me also? I feel like he is getting picked on for his ASD.

Be assured than any medical condition (or previous surgeries, or serious illnesses) requires documentation from someone more familiar with the patient. They want a medical report, not the patient's description. When it comes to the mental health component, they want to see the assurance that the immigrant will not pose a "threat to himself or others" in those exact words. If the GP writes that in their report, then that is often enough. Sometimes they request a psychiatrist on staff to do an evaluation to say he will not be a "threat to himself or others". It is taking a long time, but he isn't the first person this has happened to. Once his medical clearance reaches the embassy, his interview will probably be 6-8 weeks later.

If the petition expires, it is renewed by you writing a new letter of intent. He takes it to the interview. There will be no issue with the expiration. I promise.
