Obstetrics and Gynecology Telemedicine Appointments

Mount Sinai’s Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science offers telemedicine/video appointments to maximize the patient experience and efficiency. We recognize during this heightened alert about COVID-19 that this convenient service is extremely helpful by reducing your potential risk of exposure. Used primarily for selected new and follow-up care, these appointments may be made for certain visit types and physicians in obstetrics and gynecology.

We would like to offer all new patients the same courtesy and convenience. However, we appreciate your understanding that many obstetrics and gynecology visits require a physical examination in the office. Follow-up visits often do not require in-office exams or technology and are shorter consultations than initial visits. Hence, telemedicine is an effective channel to receive quality follow-up care without the hassle of commuting for your appointment. Our patients receive the benefits of video visits, including prescribing of medications, if appropriate.
