Hey, thanks. Just completed the medical in Vancouver and double checking everything for the interview next week. I'm ready for this process to be over even though it seemed to move quickly for us.

That's so exciting. I'm in Vancouver as well, and moving into the Bay Area too! How was the medical? Was it quite straightforward?

I'll be moving to the bay area as well. I flew over from Edmonton on Monday for my 9;30am appt Tuesday morning. I let reception know I was there and was called up within 10 mins to submit the required docs and 5 PP photos and 10 mins later I was called into the room to wait for the Dr. He did a quick check and I mean quick. I was in and out of his office in 5 mins. Super nice, funny guy. I was given the blood and x-ray paperwork and told exactly where to go next. I did the blood work first just down the street at the lifelab clinic. There were a couple of people ahead of me but I was in and out within 20 mins. Then I headed further up the street to the West Coast imaging lab for the chest x-ray. I parked directly across the street because parking is limited and only at the back of the building. I walked in and the waiting room was full, not a seat to be found. This was around 11:00am. I gave the crusty b*tch behind the counter my requisition and she said it would be about an hour wait. I figured i'd go eat rather then stay there. Got back 40 mins later and was called to the back within 10 mins. Had the x-ray done and was out in 5 mins. I was told in email that the results would be ready between 4-5pm on Thursday so I had planned to stay the extra days and pick them up myself at the Dr's office and fly back to Edmonton that night. Rather then hang around all day waiting, I stopped by the office at around 11am on the off chance the results would be ready. One of the receptionists told me I couldn't get them until after 4pm but another receptionist heard me asking and asked for my name. I told her and she said hold on, went into the back and brought out my results. Two envelopes, one that says do not open and the other had the chest x-ray. Results in hand I headed back to the airport and caught an earlier flight home. Very straightforward, very easy.

Thank you so much for your detailed review! I hope you enjoyed the pleasant weather that we've had in Vancouver for the past week. I wish you the best in your move, and I'll be continuing to follow your timeline! :)

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.

** Not all cases are transfered
