As U.S. Civil Surgeons, we have a great deal of experience in all facets of Immigration Medicine. We understand the medical issues immigrants face – we’ve done thousands of Immigration Physicals, Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions, and other related services.

We have tremendous respect for immigrants and refugees, having been through the immigration process ourselves. When we say “we understand”, we speak (in several languages!) from direct experience.

Immigration Services at Life Medical are provided by its subsidiary, AM Physicians, PA. More information is available at
