Family Medicine of Mechanicville offers the exam required by the immigration services. We are located  in the Capital Region, close to Halfmoon, Clifton Park, Malta, Troy, Cohoes, Latham, Stillwater, and just 20 minutes from Albany. 

For your first appointment, you will need two types of photo identification, vaccination records and payment of $350 for adults or $300 for children younger than 15 y/o.  
This fee is not covered by insurance.

This fee will cover:

  • Initial nurse visit
  • Gathering of your documentation and orders for tests required by USCIS
  • Physical exam.

Starting October, 1, 2018, these tests are required by the USCIS: 


  • A blood test for TB (IGRA or T Spot), that can be done at LabCorp for $227 or you can go to another lab.  This test is required for all persons older than 2.
  • Urine gonorrhea test and blood syphilis test are $29.90 each, if done in our office      (the lab will bill you directly), or you could go to a lab of your choosing. These tests are required for all people older than 14. 

Please go to  and print two copies of the form and bring them with you for your first visit; otherwise we could print them in the office. Bringing them with you will save us time.    Formulario I-693 de USCIS Instrucciones para el informe de examen médico y registro de vacunación

Remember, vaccines required by USCIS are not included in our initial fee of $350. During your first visit, you will learn what vaccines you are missing or if they are completed. Call your insurance to see if the vaccines are covered (including COVID 19 vaccine), otherwise you will be responsible for the cost of them. We highly recommend obtaining the records of vaccines from your country of origin; it will save you time and money.  It is possible we can give you some of the vaccines in the office or you may need to go to another provider if we don’t have them. Also remember this is not a “one step” process. It may take up to 3 visits. The duration of the process will depend on your health and individual circumstances.
