Video Visits / Telemedicine Appointments

At Weill Cornell Medicine, Department of Urology, our top priority remains the care of our patients. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are emphasizing the use of Video Visits to provide a safe, effective, secure, and convenient way to provide care. Video Visits allows us to continue to fulfill our mission to provide best-in-class care for all of our patients.

New and existing patients will have direct access to Dr. Husain through a smartphone (preferred) or computer. Our patients will receive instructions to a unique, secure, and private link to access the Video Visit session once the appointment is scheduled.

Nearly all of our visits are being performed via Video Visit at this time. During the Video Visit with Dr. Husain, she will determine if an in-person office visit is needed. 

Please call our office at (718) 230-7788 to schedule a private Video Visit today.
