Dr. Ranzenberger is a USCIS designated civil surgeon and is authorized to perform immigration exams requiring the completion of Form I-693.
We recommend you schedule your exam several weeks prior to your appointment with the USCIS. Lab work can take 1-2 weeks to be reported.
Depending on the initial lab results, other tests may be indicated which may take additional time to complete. Form I-693 will be signed by the civil surgeon after all lab work is completed and reported.
Once Form I-693 has been signed by the civil surgeon, it is valid for 60 days.
If your completed form is not submitted to USCIS within the 60 days, it will no longer be valid and full fee prices will apply for any exams that need to be performed again.
What To Bring To The Exam
- Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record.
- Government-issued photo identification, such as a valid passport or driver’s license.
- Your birth certificate
- (with an English translation) or an affidavit.
- Vaccination or immunization record
- (such as DT, DTP, DTaP, Td, Tdap, OPV, IPV, MMR, Hib, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, varicella, pneumococcal influenza, rotavirus, and meningococcal disease)
- If you are 14 years old or younger, bring identification that shows your name, date, place of birth, and parent’s full name.
During The Exam
The medical examination entails a review of your medical history and a physical examination.
The doctor will complete a comprehensive medical history and physical examination as well as a specimen collection for the required USCIS labs.
Once the lab work has been reported from the laboratory and follow-up testing (if any) has been completed, the doctor will sign Form I-693 and seal the form in an envelope for you to submit to USCIS.
USCIS will not accept the form if the envelope has been opened or altered.
