U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has launched an enhanced tool to find local doctors authorized to perform medical examinations for green card applicants.

The improved Find a Doctor locator lets you enter your address or ZIP code to search for a doctor based on distance. You can also look up directions and find local transportation. And we have added a helpful checklist of what to bring with you to your doctor visit.

All of this can be accessed online at any time using any device.

Only doctors authorized by USCIS, known as civil surgeons, may perform the exams that are usually required as part of the process for obtaining permanent resident status.

For more information, visit my.uscis.gov.

Your feedback helps us improve our services. Send comments to myuscissupport@uscis.dhs.gov or through the USCIS Idea Community. We also encourage you to register to receive email updates and find out about opportunities to test new features.
