About Same-Day Appointments

The Mount Sinai Health System now provides in-person, same-day appointments throughout all five boroughs of New York City. We offer appointments to meet your health care needs with a wide range of services and treatments. Depending on the need and time of day you call, we’ll schedule an appointment for you that day (excluding holidays and weekends).

Call 844-463-2778 today for an immediate concern, second opinion, or any other health issue.

During the pandemic, our doctors, nurses, and staff members are working diligently to ensure the health and safety of each patient who depends on us for care. Throughout our health system, we’re protecting our patients with rigorous protocols.

How Same-Day Appointments Work

When you call 844-463-2778, a registered nurse ask you a number of questions about your health condition to match the best doctor for your needs. If you call before 2 pm, we’ll offer you an appointment that day. For calls after 2 pm, we’ll offer an appointment for the next day.

What to Expect:

  • When you call, please have basic identifying information, such as your address, phone number, and insurance carrier, on hand
  • A registered nurse will ask questions about your symptoms to determine the appropriate physician to see you. In most cases, we’ll be able to schedule the appointment with this information.
  • For complex or chronic medical conditions, additional information may be required before an appointment is scheduled. This information is critical to ensuring the right specialist to see you.

Same-Day Appointment Considerations

  • If you already have a Mount Sinai doctor for your condition, we will connect you with that person’s office to schedule the appointment to ensure seamless coordination of care with your provider.
  • Our priority is to ensure patients with urgent needs are seen by a physician as soon as possible; if your concern is considered immediate, you will be directed to an Emergency Department.
  • We will do our best to accommodate all requests, but your appointment may be scheduled further out if you need a routine physical/check-up or specialized care.
  • We will work with you, as applicable, to match your insurance plan to the best of our abilities.
