Prepping for Immigration medical exam. See the information below from the USCIS website.

Finding An Authorized Doctor
When you apply for a green card (adjustment of status) in the United States, you usually need a medical examination. The exam must be done by a doctor who is authorized by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). USCIS designates sure doctors (also known as civil surgeons) to perform the medical exam required for most Green Card applicants. Military physicians are authorized to act immigration medical exams at a military treatment facility within the United States for U.S. veterans, members of the U.S. military, and designated dependents.
A panel physician must do immigration medical examinations performed outside the United States and its territories. Panel physicians are different from civil surgeons. Panel physicians are designated by the Department of State and provide immigration medical examinations required for visa processing at a U.S. Embassy or consulate abroad.
What To Bring To The Exam
Bring the following to your medical exam:
Form I-693, Report of Medical Examination and Vaccination Record
Government-issued photo identification, such as a valid passport or driver’s license. If you are 14 years old or younger, bring identification showing your name, date, place of birth, and parent’s full name. Possible forms of identification include your birth certificate (with an English translation) or an affidavit.
Vaccination or immunization record (such as DT, DTP, DTaP, Td, Tdap, OPV, IPV, MMR, Hib, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, varicella, pneumococcal influenza, rotavirus, and meningococcal disease)
Medical insurance card (check with the doctor’s office to make sure the office accepts your medical plan)
Payment (check with the doctor’s office about acceptable forms of payment). It is also a good idea to call a few doctors to find out how much they charge for the exam. Prices can vary by a few hundred dollars.
During The Exam
The medical examination entails a review of your medical history and a physical exam.
The doctor will complete a comprehensive examination that will include a review of your medical history and a physical exam. The doctor will also test for infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, syphilis, and gonorrhea.
After the exam, the doctor will complete Form I-693 and seal the form in an envelope for you to submit to USCIS. Ensure you get a copy of the completed Form I-693 for your records before the doctor seals the envelope. USCIS will not accept the form if the envelope has been opened or altered.
