Carolyn D. Brockington, MD is the Director of the Stroke Center at Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai Morningside in New York City.  She is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and has a subspecialty board certification in Vascular Neurology.

Dr. Brockington cares for patients in the emergency room, out-patient and hospital setting. One of her clinical interests is the treatment and prevention of stroke in minority communities (disparities in healthcare). Notably, the incidence of stroke and stroke-related mortality in the African-American and Hispanic communities is twice the rate found in Caucasian communities. She gives frequent lectures and provides stroke screenings to church and healthcare programs. 

In addition, she works with the American Stroke Association (ASA), as a volunteer medical spokesperson, regarding a campaign to increase stroke awareness and highlight prevention strategies, particularly in underserved communities.

She was named one of “New York’s Best Doctors” by New York magazine in 2017-2020 and has written several articles about stroke related issues.  She has participated with numerous TV health segments on local and national networks.  Dr. Brockington received the Cullman Family Award for Excellence in Physician Communication in 2018 and 2020.  The award is given to physicians ranked in the top 1% nationally in provider communication measured by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Clinician and Group Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CC CAHPS) patient experience survey.

Carolyn D. Brockington, MD is registered to provide telehealth services in Florida.
