The Department of Neurology outpatient practices are OPEN for in person visits and we will also continue to offer Video Visits.

For information about COVID-19, please read our COVID-19 patient guide. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have reduced face-to-face patient encounters. However, our team of Neurologists can handle a lot of your follow-up and new neurologic care via a Video Visit. Video Visits are also available for follow-up appointments and new patient visits to New York State, Florida, New Jersey and Connecticut residents. Please call (212) 746-2596 to schedule a Video Visit.
