Virtual Visit


Download the NYP App

What is a NYP OnDemand Virtual Visit?

Through NYP OnDemand Virtual Visits, you can save time traveling to and waiting in the doctor's office by video conferencing with your doctor instead. It is a quick, convenient way to communicate with medical professionals contributing to your care, including your existing doctor. Virtual Visits require an internet or Wi-Fi connection and can be accessed via the NYP app or on the web. Ask your provider if they offer this convenient service and if it may be appropriate for your care.  

Why have a Virtual Visit?

It may be appropriate to speak with your physician through video if you live far away from your provider’s office, or if you feel more comfortable having a visit from your home. You may have a routine check-up before a procedure, or a standard follow-up appointment after it is completed without having to travel to the doctor’s office.
