Case Summary:

We, North America Immigration Law Group –, represented a researcher in the field of Cardiology who investigated the prognoses and outcomes of admitted patients with chest pain. Our client also contributed towards the research of medical practice management for dialysis patients with advanced kidney disease and coronary artery disease. This research had resulted in 8 peer-reviewed publications, 19 international conference abstracts and presentations, and 5 major media appearances at the time of filing our client’s case. These aforementioned publications had been cited 5 times at the time of filing the case. In addition to researching and publishing his findings, our client also acted as a peer reviewer for 2 journals and 2 conferences related to the field of Cardiology. One independent recommender stated: “The work of [Client] and how his publications could be directed towards delineating and improving guidelines related to the administration of stress tests for emergency room patients who present with chest pain. This topic is one of the biggest challenges in cardiology because it combines the risk of missing a patient with potentially lethal coronary disease in a much larger group of people with a very tiny risk of having any significant heart disease. The fact that this challenge results in some of the most costly and often inefficient use of medical care funds, only adds to the overall problem of doing too much for the wrong patients at the wrong time. [Client’s] work reframes this question to doing the right test, for the right patient at the right time. This is better medical care at much more efficient cost and will soon be mandated by the ACA (Affordable Care Act)…” This EB1-A Alien of Extraordinary Ability petition received approval in 7 months and 7 days, including the time taken to respond to the issued RFE.
