Delivering the same level of world-class care, with exceptional convenience.
Video Visits are virtual appointments with a trusted Weill Cornell Medicine provider, offering you the opportunity to interact with a physician in a face-to-face experience. It's a simple, convenient way to stay in touch and manage your health concerns from your home or office. Log into Connect to schedule a Video Visit appointment with a member of your care team.
For all Video Visits, you must be present in a state where your physician is licensed for practicing. If you will not be in New York State at the time of your video visit, please confirm with your physician’s office that they are licensed to provide virtual care in your residing state. Weill Cornell Medicine physicians who offer Video Visits to patients in Florida have registered with the Florida Board of Medicine as out-of-state telehealth providers.

What is a Video Visit?
Video Visits enable patients to complete appointments virtually — helping patients access care more conveniently.
Using a mobile device, the Weill Cornell Medicine app, and a secure internet connection, patients speak with a Weill Cornell Medicine provider one-on-one, receiving the same high-quality care as an in-person appointment.
Does my physician offer Video Visits?
Video Visits are available to new and existing patients at Weill Cornell Medicine. To schedule with an existing provider, please log into Connect for scheduling availability. If you would like to schedule an initial Video Visit with a provider, please visit the clinical services page to review participating specialties.
Can I schedule a Video Visit for my child?
Yes. If your child is currently a patient with a Weill Cornell Medicine pediatrician, you can schedule a follow-up Video Visit virtually using Connect or by calling your pediatrician’s office.
If your child is not an existing patient, schedule your first visit with Primary Care Pediatrics.
Which conditions are treated with Video Visits?
Video Visits may be available for urgent or same day care for illnesses such as sore throat, cough, fever, diarrhea and vomiting, rash, urinary tract infection, conjunctivitis (pinkeye) and many other acute symptoms that do not require a standard physical exam.
A video visit may also be appropriate for post-surgical follow-up, prescription refills, and management of chronic medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, behavioral health issues such as depression and anxiety, and many others.
If you are uncertain whether your symptoms are appropriate for a video visit, check with your providers’ office.
Do you offer Virtual Urgent Care services?
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911. Virtual Urgent Care and Video Visits are for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries only.

For after-hours visits or Virtual Urgent Care services, please visit Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Emergency Medicine for more information on offerings.
Does my insurance cover Video Visits?
Video Visits have the same insurance coverage as in-person appointments. Your copay is the same and your deductible still applies. Please contact your provider for more information about cost and insurance coverage.
Will I be able to speak to my physician during a Video Visit?
Yes. You will speak one-on-one with a Weill Cornell Medicine provider. You will receive the same high-quality care as an in-person appointment.
How do I schedule a Video Visit?
