At this time, our clinic offers medical and psychological affidavits for established patients who receive their primary care at Boston Medical Center.
Our FMEG coordinator will coordinate with client’s attorney a consultation appointment with the Forensic Medical Evaluation team to assess their priority health needs and social circumstances. Prior to the consultation, we ask that the asylum-seeker's lawyer will provide our team with their declaration.

Evaluator will document any physical trauma such as scars by using diagrams and photographs. Please note psychological evaluation will require three to four visits with our evaluator.
