Urology Telemedicine Appointments

Mount Sinai’s Department of Urology 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 urology.

We would like to offer all new patients the same courtesy and convenience. However, we appreciate your understanding that many urologic conditions require a physical examination in the office. Follow-up visits typically do not require in-office 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 enjoy the various benefits of real-time video visits, which can include prescribing medications if needed.

What types of appointments can take place with urologists via video visits?
As noted above, we predominantly use this delivery care method for follow-up visits that entail viewing a healing wound or discussing remaining symptoms, postoperative discomfort, quality of life questions (i.e. when to return to exercise or work routines) and medications. 

How do I book a telemedicine appointment?
Please contact your provider’s office via Mount Sinai MyChart or telephone to schedule your appointment. Once you’ve scheduled a video conference, you can use the Mount Sinai MyChart App, on any iOS and Android phones or a tablet, to participate in the conference. A guide to using MyChart App can be found here.
