Telemedicine Appointments

For your convenience, Mount Sinai Doctors-Long Island offers telemedicine/video appointments. This allows you to receive high-quality service while easily maintaining social distance. Telemedicine appointments are available for both new and existing patients. Most of our physicians offer telemedicine for many types of appointments. Some appointments, though, require an in-person physical examination and/or diagnostic testing. We encourage you to start the conversation with your doctor virtually. Then you and the doctor can determine the next steps, which can include prescribing medications. Our patients have found real-time video visits to be helpful.

If you would like to make a telemedicine appointment, please request a visit through MyMountSinai® (MyChart). You can also call the practice and one of our staff members can assist you.
