Immigration Physicals and Vaccinations
Our U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Designated Civil Surgeons Dr. Doug Borkowski, Dr. Sonia Chadha, and Dr. Amit Agarwal are experienced with the medical requirements of the examination necessary to complete your immigration physical. Individuals applying for citizenship, seeking Permanent Residency, or a Green Card are required to obtain an immigration physical prior to approval of their application. It is mandatory that immigration physicals are completed by a Designated Civil Surgeon so the exam is valid. We do all the necessary testing on site and have most of the required vaccines in our office.
Doctors Express Paramus can perform the required immigration physicals in accordance with the Department Of Homeland Security and U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services for immigrants or employers who hire employees originating from another country. Each evaluation includes an examination performed according to the medical guidelines established by the Department Of Homeland Security and U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services and Centers for Disease Control. The civil surgeon will record the exam results on Form I-693 for the applicant to return to the USCIS (INS).
We accept proof of vaccination done elsewhere. We have the ability to provide the physical examination, the blood tests, the skin test for tuberculosis, the vaccinations required, and chest X-rays, if needed. This is all that is required to complete the medical part of your application.

- Tuberculin (skin test) and interpretation

It has become more and more difficult to see you doctor when you get sick. For the past three years I have been bringing my family to Doctors Express whenever we need to see the doctor that day. We never need to make an appointment, they can take care of just about anything, and they always call afterward to make sure we are getting better.

I fell and twisted my ankle while walking the dog one morning. I didn't want to go to the emergency room because of the long waits and I knew that my primary care physician couldn't take x-rays in her office. I went to Doctors Express where they were able take my x-rays, tell me that nothing was broken, and provide me with crutches and a brace. All in under one hour! Why go anywhere else.

The medical staff is the back-bone of the Doctors Express team. We are professionals and health care partners with the physicians. Taking care of sick people is just a part of what I do. It's a high-tech, high touch career with Doctors Express. Just hearing my patients say they appreciate me makes my day.

I like Doctors Express because they have physicians on-site every day. And if you need an x-ray you get to take it with you. I'm in college and took my x-rays to my doctor at home.

With no night call, I work hard during the day and spend evenings with my wife. When I'm not working I enjoy traveling, hiking and spending time with family. I'm dedicated to medicine, my patients and my family.

Doctors Express is a great place for X-Ray techs. I love my job and the patients are great. I also train for triathlons. I can work hard during the day and train hard in the evenings. It's the best of both.

I really enjoy the one-on-one interaction with the patients. That's important to me because I have gotten to know many of our patients over the years.

I was at a picnic on a Sunday when my son fell and cut open his knee. He needed immediate care and stitches I knew my family's doctor office was not open. I was dreading the fact that I had to go to the ER on a weekend since I knew I would be waiting for 4-5 hours to be seen. A family member told me about DE and I rushed him to the center. He was quickly treated, stitched and back at the party within an hour. Thank you DE for the fast and efficient care.

I felt horrible when I woke up. I called my doctor but they couldn't fit me in until next week. I really needed some relief and couldn't wait. I called Doctors Express and was told to come right in. With no appointment needed, I was seen, given my medication, and was feeling better in just a short time. I didn't have to miss work and was back to normal in no time!

Doctors Express really understands the need to get my employees back to work as soon as possible. They are quick to see my employees and as a business owner, time missed means money missed. I'm grateful to have Doctors Express in my neighborhood.
