An immigration exam is required by the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) to obtain a U.S. Green Card (or U.S. Citizenship). At Health One Family Medicine, Dr. Parikh is a designated United States Civil Surgeon by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and is authorized to perform immigration exams for all ages. We understand that the immigration process can be long and confusing - Health One Family Medicine provides all necessary medical services to complete your immigration exam in a convenient and timely manner.
