What if I recently married or changed my name due to marriage? What if I want my married name on the form?
If you want your married name on the form, you must bring a marriage license. We enclose a copy of it in the envelope and keep a copy in the chart to avoid confusion during your entire process.
What if I have already received the vaccines elsewhere?
That is perfectly fine. Vaccines can be obtained elsewhere if a valid shot record is provided. Valid shot records are often the forms given to you after the vaccine is administered. Sometimes, the best option is to ask your Primary Physician for your shot record.
How long does the entire process take?
The entire process takes about a week. First, you must have a consultation which includes lab tests, vaccines, and a consultation with one of our providers. It takes about a week for us to receive the results from the lab and review the information. From there, we will prepare the paperwork and give you a call. There are cases where there are additional tests are required and may delay the process an additional week.
How long does the appointment take?
If you are a new patient, expect to spend about 2 hours at the clinic. This includes filling out some new patient paperwork. If you are an existing patient, expect to spend about an hour and a half.
What if I don't have my I-693 documents ready for my interview?
We have seen cases where patients will not have their paperwork ready for their interview. In these cases, we have seen people still be able to go through the interview process and mail in their paperwork afterward. This does delay the process. This is not advice, and we recommend for you to properly plan. We strongly recommend you to consult with your lawyer in this regards.
