Immigration Physicals at Community Care Physicians' Urgent Care Centers

Immigration Physicals

Immigration Physicals

Immigration Physicals for all ages are conducted by physicians at Urgent Care of Latham on an appointment basis.

For non-English-speaking adults, an interpreter will be provided at no charge. Please note that family members are not allowed to interpret.

Dr. Alex Sazon and Dr. Oleksiy Loytra are licensed U.S. civil surgeons performing immigration physicals.

It typically takes 3-5 business days to acquire the lab results. (If a lab titer is low, then you will need to obtain the necessary vaccination. If the Quantiferon Gold blood test is positive, then you will need to obtain a chest x-ray - available at both facilities)

As soon as the file is complete, the civil surgeon will sign the I-693. A sealed envelope will be created containing the I-693 and supporting documentation.

Immigration physicals are by appointment only Tuesday thru Friday noon until 6pm.
