H1B Visa Approved for Cardiac Perfusionist after TN Visa Denial

We successfully received the approval of an H1B Visa for a Cardiac Perfusionist through Form I-129 with US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) after a TN Visa denial. The employee first attempted to obtain a TN visa at a US port of entry under the Medical Lab Technician/Technologist profession and was denied entry.  We were able to review the profession and placement of the employment at a non-profit teaching hospital and file a successful H1B visa petition. We discuss the details of this case and the H1B visa approval here.
