Medical Exam..anyone, please help

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a simple question about the medical exam procedure and I am hoping someone can help me with this frustrating ordeal. 

Is it legal or ok for Dr.s to withhold Medical Exam results from the U.S Embassy? 

 

My husband had his medical exam and the Dr is not sending the information to the Embassy. 

This is what happened.....My husband was honest about his drug use which was 8 years ago. The Dr. ordered him to see a Psychologist for eval and then had a drug test done. We were actually happy about these extra steps that the Dr. wanted my husband to complete, for the simple fact that it would validate him being clean, and not imposing a threat as an immigrant in the U.S. 

We get to the interview and we are informed that the Dr. has not sent in the Medical Exams, so now we have a 221 and only waiting for the medical results. We call the Dr. the next day and asked about the medical exam and when they are going to be sending the results (The Dr. did tell my husband he would be sending the medical exam results to the Embassy for him). My husband was told "We will not be sending the medical exam until you finish the monitoring program, which could be 3 months to a year". 

I have been researching and I have not read anywhere that Dr.'s withhold the medical exam from the U.S Embassy. 

I found this on a forum here on VJ...it sounds like to me that the Dr's only job is to perform the medical, give opinion and then let the USCIS decide. 

 

One vital thing that you need to understand is this: IF there are any irregularities regarding your
medical exam, it is the CONSULATE (or the USCIS if you are filing adjustment while inside the U.S.) who
has the final say on whether this allows you to get the visa. The consulate or USCIS may consult the
doctor for answers to questions they may have, and while the doctor can make recommendations, the
USCIS or consulate makes the final decision.

 

If ANYONE could help me with this question or if anyone has had the same situation, please let me know. 

 

I have called and e-mailed everyone I can think of to figure this out and I am not getting any answers. 

 

Thank you!!!

The referral for a PSYCH exam is under the control of panel physician and the panel physician does not have to send the report until it is complete and they can assert that the drug usage has stopped.

Thank you.  So my husband could go weeks or even several months with not being tested, which would prolong his Visa. My husband is happy and willing to be tested to proof he is not using. For us, it is frustrating that there is a lack of communication from the Dr. 

 

Thanks again

The panel physician's office/ psychologist or CO  should have said what the monitoring length was.  I know in Mexico they look at a year of testing clean.

The receptionist at the Dr's told my husband 3 months to a year. The CO has no information on my husband's medical exam.
