Yes, it is legit. I went to the same doctor i had medical done. I gave them my IME number and they said i have to redo xrays. It wasted my 3 months. However I passed the medical exam and now i am PR.

The email came from manila embassy philippines? Did you have your medical done in the Philippines?thanks for the response by the way😊

My medical done in Canada. But immigration department has outsourced the doctor to verify the results. It could be in any country.

Go to same doctor and they will let you know what they want more.

So they requested 2nd xray for verification?

Yes, they did. It’s depend, whatever they want. If its an xrays then four month of time will waste.
