As COVID begins to rise again in New York City, we want you to know that you can always count on us. The health care teams at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, Weill Cornell Medicine, and NewYork-Presbyterian are here to take care of you in a safe way.

We know there are many questions about the new COVID vaccine. The vaccine is safe and can protect you. However, it is not available to the general public at this time, so there is no need to contact your doctor to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination. The first doses will be given to healthcare workers, first responders, and others who are most vulnerable to COVID-19. This is the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

We will stay in touch with you, adding COVID vaccine updates and educational materials to our websites and the Connect patient portal, with news on how to get your vaccine as we learn more about its availability.

It is important that you continue to protect yourself and others.

  • Wash your hands.
  • Wear a mask.
  • Stay six feet away from other people.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces.
  • Avoid gatherings with people outside of your household.

All of our practices are open during normal operating hours by appointment ONLY. The Audubon Practice at NYP/Columbia University Irving Medical Center continues to be open on Saturdays for Pediatrics, including flu vaccination, by appointment ONLY.

Feeling sick? Please call first.

If you are sick, call us first and select Option 6 for sick patients ONLY. For your safety, please do not walk into your practice. We will work with you to determine the best course of action to address your need.

  • NYP/Columbia University Irving Medical Center Ambulatory Care Network
    866-463-2778
  • NYP/Weill Cornell Medicine Ambulatory Care Network
    Please call your practice directly.

Need a medication refill?

Call your pharmacy first. You may already have a refill waiting for you there. If you do not have a refill at your pharmacy, ask your pharmacist to contact us by calling your practice. If your pharmacist is not able to request the refill for you, you have two options to request the refill yourself:

  • Log on to MyChart / Connect
  • Call your practice

Use Telemedicine

Schedule a virtual visit. They are safe, effective, and available to you from the comfort and safety of your home. Many of you have already taken advantage of this wonderful resource. If you have not done so already, please sign up for Connect, our patient portal. You can log in or create a new account by visiting http://www.myconnectnyc.org/mychart/. All video visits will now require the installation of Zoom onto your desktop, laptop, or mobile device. Everything else about your experience will remain the same, and you should continue to log in to Connect to launch your video visits as you usually would. Do you have questions about virtual visits? Call us.

COVID Testing

During a visit with your primary care provider, if you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have any symptoms of possible COVID-19, your provider will work with you on the best way to get tested. You can also find a New York City Department of Health testing site near you at: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/find-test-site-near-you

Thank you for trusting us with your health and for helping us keep our patients, families, and loved ones protected during this time. We hope you and your loved ones remain healthy and safe this holiday season and always.

Dear parent(s) or guardian(s),

As COVID begins to rise in NYC, we want you to know that you can always count on us. We, the doctors and the health care teams at Columbia and NewYork-Presbyterian, are here to take care of you in a safe way. 

All of our practices are open Monday to Friday by appointment ONLY.  The Audubon Practice continues to be open on Saturdays for flu shots by appointment ONLY.

Will the clinic be a safe place?

Your safety comes first. We want you to know that we have increased our safety measures and that your experience will be more comfortable, modern and efficient than ever before.  Our waiting rooms are designed to allow for social distancing and you will not wait in the waiting room long, if at all.  The practice staff follow CDC guidelines and has the proper personal protective equipment and wear it at all times.  We are sanitizing areas throughout the day and exam rooms are cleaned extensively between all patient visits.

How can I prepare for the increase in COVID?

We ask that you review your child’s medication needs for the upcoming months and if you need any refills please send a message via MYCHART to the practice.  We will review the chart and provide the needed medication.

How do you call your Practice if you need an in-person appointment for a physical exam?

Audubon Practice: (212) 342-3200
Broadway Practice: (212) 304-6922
Rangel Practice: (212) 491-2300
Washington Heights Family Health Center: (212) 342-3060

What if I need a school physical form for my child?

If your child has had a physical exam in the last 18 months, their form can be completed without a new visit.  If your child needs a form, PLEASE send a message using MyChart, the patient portal.

What if I need a WIC form for my child?

All WIC offices are closed but they are available by phone at (212) 928-6500.  A blood test before your child’s WIC appointment may still be needed.  Please contact your practice by MyChart to see if we can complete your form with the information, we have from your most recent visit.

If your child or adolescent (any age) is sick, PLEASE CALL YOUR PRACTICE FIRST. We will see them either through a video visit using your phone/tablet or in person.

If your child or adolescent is suffering from increased anxiety or sadness or if you would like to talk to a social worker, please call your Practice.  We are here to help. Counseling is available via video.

If your child has asthma or wheezing, please bring your ALBUTEROL or VENTOLIN pump to all your medical appointments.  Using your own pump is the safest way to treat your child’s asthma.

If you are having issues with your MYCHART account, please call 646-962-4200.
