tb treatment of parent (aos) due to possible exposure indicated in skin-test


Recommended Posts


I have petitioned for my elderly father's Green Card. In his medical screening , he tested positive for possible exposure to tb. He himself has never had tb before. An additional chest x-ray was done as directed by USCIS. The USCIS-appointed doctor recommended that my father will need to get it treated at some point of time, though not immediately. The doctor did not prescribe any immediate treatment or medication. Is it necessary to get my dad's treatment done before his interview or can I hold his treatment till after the interview? Can it become a point for rejection ? Again, the doctor did not prescribe anything and only suggested the treatment be done at some point. Thank you
