My I-485 and I-130 files are ready. I need to file ASAP but Medical exam will take long and if I wan tto wait for that will delay things. Can I file now and submit the medical exam at my interview? or it will delay my case and RFE will be issued? Tnx
The medical exam is required for filing. If the delay is getting additional shots in a series that must have a certain lag time between them, see if the doctor will sign the medical anyway and indicate the other shots will be done when medically appropriate.

I agree that you should do what you can to submit your medical report with the applications. You might consider a different civil surgeon outside of the Boston metro area. We've had pretty good luck with those in Central and Western MA as they aren't quite as busy as those in Boston. You can find a list of civil surgeons at: https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=office...
