About Our Practice

Since 1995, the Mount Sinai Visiting Doctors Program has been fulfilling the need to provide quality, compassionate health care to frail, elderly, or ailing adults who are unable to leave their homes. The award-winning program—inspired by three Mount Sinai residents who recognized this need—grew out of the collaborative efforts of the Samuel Bronfman Department of Medicine and the Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine. With a team of geriatricians, internists, social workers, nurses, nurse practitioners and administrative support, we work to improve the quality of life of homebound persons, as well as their caregivers, offering the best possible services and practical support.

Today, serving as both a health care service and a teaching platform, Mount Sinai Visiting Doctors Program stands as a flagship clinical initiative—the largest academic home-visit program in the nation, with its clinicians making more than 6,000 home visits annually to more than 1,100 patients

The Patients We Serve

Throughout Manhattan, the Visiting Doctors Program delivers comprehensive primary care to an underserved segment of the population—homebound adults, consisting of geriatrics patients, as well as those with psychiatric, neurological, complex, and terminal illnesses. Our team also reaches out to families and caregivers to offer emotional support and counseling.
