Telemedicine Appointments

Mount Sinai Doctors-Forest Hills 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. Used for both new and existing patients, these appointments may be made for visits with most physicians in the practice. We appreciate your understanding that some conditions require a physical examination and/or diagnostic testing. However, we are encouraging Telemedicine visits to start the conversation about patients’ symptoms and determine next steps which can include prescribing medications, if needed. Our patients have given us great feedback about their experience and enjoy the various benefits of real-time video visits.

If you would like to request a Telemedicine visit, please request an appointment through MyChart or call the practice and speak to one of our staff members who can assist you in scheduling an appointment.
