After Your Visit
At the Mount Sinai Medicine Faculty Practice, we value patient feedback. A sample of patients is selected to receive a patient satisfaction survey in the mail. If you receive one, we would appreciate your taking the time to complete it.
If you need to speak with your physician between visits, please allow up to 24 hours for your non-urgent calls to be returned. Your physician’s medical secretary can help you with prescription refills. Please allow one complete business day for us to contact your pharmacy. If you need a referral or an authorization for procedure, please allow three complete business days for this to be processed. If you have a form that needs to be completed by your physician, please allow two weeks for this to be processed.
Follow Up and Future Appointments
Please try to schedule all routine appointments as far in advance as possible. If your physician of choice does not have an appointment convenient to your schedule, our schedulers may suggest their professional colleague. As members of a group practice all of our providers collaborate and communicate frequently to ensure continuity of care across the practice.
Please sign up for EPIC MyChart at the time of your visit and contact us electronically whenever you require a refill. If you prefer not to sign up for EPIC MyChart, you can call our office, or send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org, and your prescription will be refilled by our nurse practitioner or a covering physician. Please allow for up to two business days in order to process your refill request. We do not prescribe controlled substances, sleeping aides or psychotropic medications through this process.
