Case Summary:

We at North America Immigration Law Group represented a researcher in the field of Cardiology who focused on optimizing treatment and procedures for patients suffering from coronary artery disease and/or peripheral vascular disease in order to conjure the best prognosis without the financial burden. This particular client had investigated the prognoses and outcomes of patients with chest pain. In addition, he had contributed towards the study of medical practice management for patients with dialysis with advanced kidney disease and coronary artery disease. The aforementioned research had resulted in 7 peer-reviewed journal articles, features in press releases and on news websites, and numerous invitations to international conferences. These publication had been cited a total of 5 times at the time this case was filed. As one of the six independent recommenders explained: “[…] [Client]contributes vital information about the appropriate use of stress tests as predictors of future cardiac events. Since heart disease is the number one killer in the United States and as millions of people present to the emergency room every year with symptoms of chest pain, it is of paramount importance that doctors have a clear idea of how to appropriately respond to the great variability of these patients. At this time, the majority of patients receive a stress test, even if they are deemed to be at low risk for heart attacks and coronary artery disease. Chest pain is a very common condition, especially in the emergency department setting and it is unclear what benefit, if any, is derived from performing stress tests on these patients. Too often, we wind up treating the test result instead of the patient which turns out to be poor and costly medical care for patients with low pretest probability for coronary heart disease because, based on classic statistical modeling doing more testing on low risk patients typically results in a higher incidence of falsely positive test results that then lead to even more testing and much greater expenses without clinical benefits.” This NIW petition received approval after 8 months, 7 days, including the time taken to respond to the issued RFE.
