Sometimes it may become necessary to call in other specialists to help us treat a patient’s condition. Depending on the diagnosis and on individual needs, a patient may meet with a coordinated team of physicians and other healthcare professionals. Routine access to so many qualified professionals is one of the major benefits of seeking specialized healthcare in a large multidisciplinary center like The Mount Sinai Health System.
