Primary Care (Internal Medicine)
Patients are encouraged to select a primary care physician (PCP) from among our board-certified internists. Dedicated to the overall care of the patient, our PCPs are trained in the care of adults 18 years of age and older. This physician sees the patient for routine visits and becomes familiar with his or her needs, establishing a long-term relationship.
Mount Sinai Doctors Long Island provides individualized care throughout a patient’s lifetime, offering complete primary care, including physical examinations, routine health screenings, and treatment of chronic and acute illnesses. Our physicians also offer urgent care and coordination of ancillary, specialty and preventive care services. Patients at Mount Sinai Doctors Long Island have access to the advanced treatments and innovations of the entire Mount Sinai Health System.
Scheduling an Appointment
Patients are seen by appointment only. We encourage patients to call early to ensure they will be accommodated. For urgent care needs, patients may be seen by their primary care physician, schedule permitting. If their primary care physician is unavailable, another physician designated to see urgent care cases will attend to the patient. Our state-of-the-art electronic medical records system enables physicians to access important patient information in a timely manner. We have offices in several convenient locations.
Use our Patient Portal to access MyChart, where you can manage your appointments, communicate with your doctor, request prescription refills, access your test results and more.
Contacting Your Primary Care Physician
Each physician establishes his or her own policies regarding telephone calls. In general, our physicians are not available to take calls during patient hours. Phone calls will be returned promptly by either the physician, or a physician representative, during breaks in the schedule or after hours. After-hours calls will be connected to our answering service, which will contact a physician for you.
Medical attention is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
