Do we know we passed the medical exam?

31 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My spouse got her medical report by 4:30 pm at the hospital. Along with others who came to do their medical exam test the previous day. 

 

I know we are not supposed to open the envelope. 

 

But how do we know if we passed it?

(I mean in the case say we got positive for the gonorrhea naat test)

 

Does the consulate only get the results when we hand them over this envelope?

Call the doctor's office and ask for the results.

I'm sure everything is okay. They would have called you if a result was positive.

So you are saying in case he could have got the gonorrhea positive the hospital would have call and let him know about it ?

OK I never knew that , I thought they have nothing to do about that, theirs is only to find out and submit the result to the consular .

In Morocco if the packet is handed to you to give the CO at embassy,  you passed

If not and they send it to embasssy, the person failed

 

In morocco it would more than likely be for TB (very prevailent) or use of drugs

 

still,  you have the right anytime a dr sees you to know what he discovered 

they did tell one Moroccan woman she was Pre diabetic

It's usually standard that the doctor's office provides a patient copy. At least that's what my doctor told me. Like others have suggested, call and request a copy of your results or ask for them to be accessed by you if there is some sort of patient portal. I don't think they will disclose anything serious over the phone. A visit to inquire is also an option.

You have the right to your medical record.  A USCIS certified physician simply means that such physician understands the law and the procedures required by the Immigration and Naturalization Act.  However, other pertinent laws, still apply.  

 

You should request your medical record so that you can submit any additional evidence, in the case that you have a disease of public concern, such as Tuberculosis.  Therefore, ensure that you get a copy of such record and that you understand how it may impact your application, so you can respond accordingly.

 

The consulate only finds out of the results when you submit the record.  They have no access to your medical history or information, otherwise.  

 

I hope this is helpful. 

 

Cheers,

Helpful Immigrant

Also, just because you test positive for a disease of public concern does not automatically create an issue.  It will, however, require you to submit additional evidence.  If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out!

If you are positive for an STD its more for a statistical purpose not for stopping you from coming into USA. most STDs can be treated with antibiotics on a 2 week or longer cycle unless you are having one of the newer resistant strains of GC or syphilis. But if you were to go to any doctor in America your STD results are given to the CDC even if its negative. I cant say exactly what the results are used for as I could get into trouble but i wouldnt worry too much about having a positive.

Not really. The rules are set by CDC I guess. 

 

Gonorrhea is a communicable disease of public health significance and applicants with gonorrhea are ineligible for a visa to the United States under Section 212(a)(1)(A)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

Gonorrhea is a communicable disease of public health significance and applicants with gonorrhea are ineligible for a visa to the United States under Section 212(a)(1)(A)(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

The list of communicable diseases that bar people from entering the United States, which is  kept by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), continues to grow. The list includes a number of quarantinable diseases (such as cholera, plague, smallpox, and yellow fever), as well as leprosy, tuberculosis, and pandemic flu. Recently HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (such as chancroid and gonorrhea) were removed from this list

 

as i have stated earlier as long as your GC can be cured by standard antibiotics you can go for a second medical checkup as long as your STD is not the mutated type of course you got to write in and get an approval for it and be harder to get your visa but it is still possible. 

 

Just letting you know I work for a branch of CDC and see this on a daily basis

If a doctor conducts a test which results in a positive result he has a duty of care to the patient to inform him/her so that treatment can be sought. I have seen threads where the visa doctor found an issue with blood pressure or heart rhythm and although neither is a cause for denial the doctor advised the individuals of his findings and urged them to seek treatment and advice from their regular doctor. He can’t ignore positive results or findings that have an impact on someone’s health.
