Los Angeles, CA |

For the immigration medical exam I-693, Can we get it done from any USCIS approved doctor in the country or the Doctor has to be the one closest to the place where the petitioner lives?

I am asking this because the price varies a lot between the range of $185 to $350.

The medical examination must be conducted by a civil surgeon who has been designated by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. Any civil surgeon can perform the medical exam.

Good luck.
