Why Choose Us
Health Care at Your Fingertips
With Video Visits, you can save time by skipping the trip to the doctor's office and video conference with your NewYork-Presbyterian provider instead. It is a secure, quick, and convenient way to connect with your doctor and other members of your care team. Video Visits can be accessed via the NYP Connect app or through the Connect Patient Portal, depending on your provider. Ask your doctor if they offer this convenient service and if it may be appropriate for your care.
