About Your Appointment
At Mount Sinai Doctors in Queens, we are here to help you get healthy and stay healthy. If you need care from any of our specialists, we collaborate and communicate frequently to provide you with high-quality care. The more you are prepared before your appointment, the smoother your visit will be. For complete care, please arrange to have copies of any relevant medical records or test results available by the time of your appointment.
Please bring these items with you to your appointment: photo ID, insurance card(s), medical records from other physicians, current medications, referring physician contact information, emergency contact information, and advance directives, if you have them.
Our front desk staff will welcome you into offices and ask for your identification. After we verify your personal information, we will provide you with any necessary forms to complete and inform the medical assistant of your arrival. If your insurance company requires a referral, please present the original form to the front desk staff. At this point, we will collect any co-payments or fees required by your insurance. We accept all major credit cards.
We understand that your time is valuable. We make every effort to see you at your scheduled appointment time. Emergencies, complications, and other issues occasionally cause unexpected delays. If your doctor is running more than 15 minutes late, we will tell you how long you can expect to wait. If you are waiting more than 15 minutes without any notice from our staff, please inform the front desk staff.
Before you see the doctor, a medical assistant will take you to an exam room. They will ask you some preliminary questions about your visit and record your vital signs. If your physician is delayed, they will let you know. If your doctor orders any testing, please ask when you can expect the results.
Your privacy is of the upmost importance to us. All information or discussion will be kept between you, your physician, and your care team.
