You have to shop around for the medical exam. Different doctors, different fees. I paid mine not more than $200

When you are wondering if a K-I is for you, or a CR-I would work better you need to consider the cost and frustration of K-I processing.

Nice if you have a choice.  We had to travel 160miles to find a doctor.

So why did you need an I-693? Most I-485 cases from K-1 do not. 

I wish I knew the answer to that.  I did not write the RFE.  Every thing just seemed to be redundant.

Not so much written about the I-693.  A lot written about the overall drawback of the K1 vs CR1.

it will be very helpful if u respond to posts when someone says K1 or CR1

we try to point out the CR1 and all advantages but not all are apparent 

 

but why so far for a dr 

there is a list of dr's for I 693  for Dallas

prices vary from $180 for exam to 300 

but the is :

$220 for physical and fill out the form

$420 for complete exam,  blood work ,  fill out the form and vaccinations

We are about in the middle of Dallas and Houston and our first Doctor retired.

If you could share with us exactly what the RFE says, we may be able to offer some advice about it.  If it's only because your vaccinations are not complete, you may be able to save some money.

It sounds like it is too late, and they've already paid all the money for the 2 exams and responded to the RFE (unless I am misreading the OP). 

 

But it is always good advice to post here about RFEs to get feedback and advice before responding and potentially forking out hundreds of dollars.

Please post exactly what the RFE says, blurring personal information. It sounds like you got a generic one.

First paragraph stated that the I-693 was incomplete because of missing immunization and I needed to submit an updated I-693.   Then the fourth paragraph said my wife needed to have a TDAP vaccination.  Knowing the doctor we used the first time was no longer available I was concerned about how to validate the I-693.  I called USCIS and was told that she would only need the vaccination and would not be required to complete the entire physical.   Once we found a new doctor he required a complete new physical, immunization's, blood work and  chest x-ray.

But is the RFE only about the I-693? My understanding is you should not need one because you are a K1 and already did the medical. I will let others chime in.
