An immigration physical involves a general physical exam that includes a review of your blood pressure, body temperature, heart rate, and overall physical appearance. The doctors listen to your heart and respiration and examine your ears, nose, throat, eyes, lymph nodes, abdomen, skin, and external genitalia.
Your Halper Family Medicine doctor reviews your immunization record, and you undergo a chest X-ray and blood test. Children younger than 15 don’t take the X-ray or blood test. People undergoing an immigration exam also receive screenings for tuberculosis, syphilis, and gonorrhea.
Halper Family Medicine also provides any additional screenings, such as follow-up blood work, or vaccinations necessary to pass the physical.
