We are here for you,

and your care remains our top priority.


Dear members of our Weill Cornell Pulmonary community, 

To ensure we are keeping patients and staff safe, as well as complying with social distancing guidelines, our offices remain closed. Our practice is committed to providing exceptional patient care during this time and we are pleased to announce we are now scheduling all patients for Video Visits!

If you have medical questions or need to speak with your care provider, please call one  of our offices to schedule your next video visit. 

Our staff can help you set up everything you need for your video visit. Telemedicine allows you to video chat with your doctor from your own home, through the secure MyChart or Weill Cornell Medicine App. Video Visits are available Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm, and are covered by all insurance plans. You can begin to set up your Weill Cornell Connect account here! 

New to Video Visits?

Start by downloading the Weill Cornell Medicine app from any app store, login with your Weill Cornell Connect login then click here to download our instruction guide.

If you're wondering what to expect, you can watch this Video Visit demonstration.

We cannot predict when our offices will reopen for in-person visits, but we anticipate high demand, so please do not wait to schedule your next video visit. If your physician is providing inpatient care, we will schedule you with another provider in our practice who has full access to your medical record and works closely with your doctor.

Please disregard any automated text reminders indicating your appointment is cancelled or advising you to physically come to one of our practice locations; this is a system-wide message and it does not apply to our division’s video visits. For the most accurate information, please check your appointments through the Weill Cornell Medicine app, or call our office.

Our greatest concern is for your health and safety. We sincerely hope you and your family members are healthy and well during these uncertain times. We would like you to know that we are here for you.
