I will perform a visual observation and/or physical examination to assess your child’s condition and determine what tests, scans, reports, treatments, and/or procedures are needed.
Do you treat patients outside of the New York City metro area?
Yes, I have treated patients from other regions of America as well as other parts of the world. However, patients would have to travel to New York City for care. As a result, these patients are typically individuals with medical conditions that require specialized expertise that can’t be readily obtained via local doctors and/or hospitals.
Patients traveling from other regions of America would simply have to make travel and lodging arrangements for their visit to New York City.
Depending on a patient’s home country, travel from outside of the United States may require a visa. For more information please contact the Bureau of Consular Affairs, U.S. Department of State and / or refer to their online Visa Wizard.
Are my medical records kept private and confidential?
My office is designed to provide maximum protection of patient medical records. Access to medical records is restricted to the office staff for medical and office related functions. However, medical information obtained during the course of examinations may be released with your permission to personal physicians, referral physicians, and any other health care providers you authorize. Medical information may also be shared with your insurance carrier in situations where we feel it’s necessary and in your best interests.
