Detailed description of the examination

What will be done

We first measure your height and weight and check your vision using an eye chart. This is done while you are still dressed, with your shoes off.

The doctor will then meet you and ask you some questions about your health and explain the procedure to you if it is not clear.

You will then be left alone in the examining room to undress.

When the doctor sees you again a few minutes later, he/she will examine the following:

Breast examination is not done unless there is a history of breast cancer or a suspicion of breast cancer based on the history.

Vaginal or rectal examination is never done.

You will spend about 30-40 minutes in our office. You should allow another 60 minutes to complete the X-ray and lab tests, in separate offices in the same building.

Undressing

You will need to undress for the examination, as required by the standards set by the immigration authorities..

Men are asked to undress to their shorts and then sit on the examining table. Men are usually not offered any gown or cover sheet unless they request one.

Women are asked to undress down to their panties and are offered a large cover sheet or a gown, according to their preference. If you are not comfortable removing your bra, please say so before the examination so we can work out a suitable accommodation for you.

Chaperones

All female applicants being examined by Dr. Ciszak (who is a male physician) are offered a female chaperone. Additionally, you may choose to have a female relative to be with you in the room. If you generally prefer being examined by a female physician, please say so when booking the appointment so we can book you with Dr. Sturwold. The objective is to make you as comfortable as possible during the examination.
