In response to our patients’ needs and the rapidly changing circumstances of public health, we are pleased to offer you the option of a virtual office visit. Telehealth visits are a great alternative to office visits, erasing the commute while still being able to conveniently access Dr. Goldman as well as our Nutritionist/Holistic Health Coach Missy via a HIPAA-compliant, secure video platform.

Virtual office visits work perfectly for women and men with Functional Medicine related concerns. The vast bulk of what we do in the office is to engage in deeply inquisitive conversations about your current and past health, in order to find the root causes of your current concerns. Additional lab work can often be done remotely, sometimes in your own home!

Dr. Gary Goldman is a board-certified OB/GYN and NYC Functional Medicine Specialist who takes the time to hear your story and uses cutting-edge technology as well as a holistic approach to diagnose and treat your Functional Medicine related concerns. Located on the upper east side in Manhattan, Dr. Goldman provides you with a personalized evaluation and treatment plan. Call today to schedule your appointment or book online now.

Virtual Visits For Current Patients

Just as you would make an appointment for an in-office visit, please call our office at (212) 535-6100 to schedule a Virtual Visit with Dr. Goldman. You can reach Missy directly at (914) 819-8692. At your appointed time, you will be invited by email to video chat through Zoom. This app can be accessed through your computer or a mobile phone. As a current patient you may make a virtual appointment regardless of where you reside.

Virtual Visits For New Patients

If you are a resident of New York or Florida we can offer you a complete medical consultation with Dr. Goldman as he is licensed in both of these states. If you are not a resident of either state, or you are not a current patient in our practice, then we may not provide you with a physician appointment due to current telemedicine regulations.

Make a virtual appointment by calling the office at (212) 535-6100. You will be asked to complete our routine paperwork which you can access here:  https://garygoldmanmd.com/for-patients/your-first-visit/  You must send all of the completed forms by fax at (212) 535-3956 before the time of your appointment or the appointment will be cancelled.

You may schedule a virtual appointment with our Nutritionist/Holistic Health Coach Missy regardless of your place of residence.

You may not book a Telemedicine appointment through Zocdoc

We must confirm your status by phone as a new or current patient, as well as the location of your residence, in order to satisfy regulatory requirements.

Zoom

After evaluating many competing apps, we have partnered with Zoom for our telehealth visits. Zoom is a HIPAA-compliant, secure platform with a high-quality audio and video experience. When you are scheduled for a telehealth visit, you will receive an invitation to Zoom by email. Please connect to Zoom about ten minutes before your first virtual visit as you will need to download their software.

Payment

Payments for virtual visits are the same rate as an office visit. Credit card information will be taken at the time you schedule your appointment. You may cancel your appointment with at least 24 hours notice without penalty. Cancellations within 24 hours or ‘no-shows’ will incur a 50% fee. Please call ahead and speak with our secretary to discuss our fee schedule.

Insurance

Just as we do not participate in any insurance plans for office visits, telemedicine visits are billed and paid at the time services are rendered. We will provide you with an appropriately coded superbill which you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. While telemedicine is generally considered to be reimbursable, each insurance company and each state has its own regulations. We cannot make any guarantees regarding your insurance reimbursement.

Labs

Any recommended lab studies based on our consultation can be obtained locally. We will send you a lab requisition form, which you may use at a laboratory close to your home. Alternatively, we offer lab drawing at our office by appointment.

What is Functional Medicine?

Have you ever felt frustrated and under-evaluated with your annual exam, which typically consists solely of listening to your heart and lungs, examining your abdomen and checking your blood pressure and cholesterol levels? A more complete evaluation is possible – and available. Our goal is to improve how you feel, as well as how you are!

Functional Medicine is highly personalized, precise and analytic medical care, which evaluates each individual’s concerns, symptoms and goals.

We investigate the root causes of your symptoms by assessing your particular genetics, biochemistry, metabolism, and physiology.

We also carefully evaluate your environment and lifestyle as contributing causes of your symptoms or condition. Using up-to-date medical literature, we devise a customized plan of action to help you achieve your optimal health.

We are equally concerned with your present comfort and your future health. Long-term health comes from optimizing the body on the deepest levels.

Traditional medicine asks “What?” What disease does this patient have? Functional Medicine asks “Why?” Why did this person develop these symptoms? “Why” is a more profound question, and yields answers that can dictate a path toward wellness, often without resorting to medications.

We achieve wellness by improving:

  • lifestyle
  • nutrition
  • stress
  • hydration
  • relationships
  • sleep and exercise

Given the proper raw ingredients, our bodies have a remarkable ability to heal; starved of the essentials, our magnificent bodies will falter and fail. Our integrative approach allows for combining traditional as well as functional, natural and holistic approaches as applicable.

This is the time to heal. This is the time to take charge of your life. You have never been this old before – and you will never be this young again. Let’s develop a therapeutic partnership and work together to maximize your health!
