My SLEC Medical experience

Hello guys, i just wanna share my experience last Sept. 27 and 28 at Saint Lukes Extension.

I arrive 4am, there are already some people inline. And line build up so fast in just a few minutes. Soon guard started to distribute numbers. I presented my passport, 1 copy of passport bio page, 1 copy of online registration, 2 copies of case number (my fiance didn't receive yet the NVC letter that time so i emailed NVC for our case number and status of it after receiving NOA2), 2 copies of interview appointment confirmation). Then guard gave me a red tag (indicating i am an online applicant) Around 6am, they started to call numbers. They prioritize senior, PWD, pregnant and online applicant. So if you are holding a lower number but you didnt fill up registration online, you need to wait for your turn until online applicants were called. They are calling per batch 1-5, 6-10, and so on... ( i am number 5)

At first window, you have to present again your documents plus 4 US passport size ID with your name written at the back of it. Staff will ask again personal information, then have your picture taken and scan your right index finger (biometrics). After that, you will be directed to cashier to pay the medical fee.

After paying, i was directed to proceed for xray. Reception will hand you form to fill up and then wait for your name to be called to proceed at the xray room. For females, there is a dressing room inside where you have to take off ur shirts and bra and put on a lab gown, there are also rubber band provided because long hairs are needed to be tied up.

Next is laboratory. They will extract some blood from your left arm. SLEC do not get urine sample anymore.

Afterwards, i proceed to counter for getting the vital sign like height, weight, blood pressure and eye exam. Im using eyeglasses with grade of 250, i ask the staff if my grade is still 250 but she says they cant measure eye grade above 200. Anyway, its all good. Dont worry if you have poor eye vision.

I was sent then to interview immunization first. Doctor will ask series of questions, Dont worry if you dont have the baby book of vaccination record anymore. Your vaccination scars at your arms are enough for the doctor to see. Show your chicken pox scar as well if you have. Those scars will lessen the number of vaccines you will be receiving. Most applicant receive 4 shots on the 2 second day but doctor told me i will be receiving 3 shots only if ever my medical result will be good. Probably because i have vaccine scar on both of my shoulder and i got chicken pox before as well.

Then i was sent for physical examination. Doctor ask me to take off all my clothes and lay flat on bed. She check on my mouth, eyes, and ear. She checks on my neck and arms as well. She just look at my breast, and she push on my abdomen. Then she ask me to lay on my left side. And she checks on my private parts very shortly.

And I'm done. She told me to go at USA counter for further instruction. The staff there advice me to return tomorrow.

Take note that on some stations, they will ask you the following:

First and last day of menstruation

If ever you had sexual contact

History of pregnancy and abortion

History of confinement, medication and operation

History of TB, other illnesses, etc.

I finished first day of medical 8:45. Wow that was early. On average, applicants finishes it around 10:30 or 11.

Second day! Sept 28. I was nervous. I keep praying my medical is successful. Otherwise, they will send you for sputum exam (that will delay your application for 2 months). I was advised to return at 8am and bring passport and receipt with me. I was anxious so i decided to return 6Am. Haha. The guard key in my info on computer. Then i saw the remarks on my name, "FOR IMMUNIZATION". Hooray! Thanks God! I went to second floor, around 7am, my name was called and i receive my 3 shots of vaccines.

They i proceeded to ground floor and waited for the result to be release. They handed me sealed envelope, xray CD and immunization record.

And just before 8Am, Im done with my Medical! :)
