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 with Holistic Gynecology 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 Holistic Gynecologist who takes the time to hear your story and uses cutting-edge technology as well as a holistic approach to diagnose and reduce your gynecologic symptoms. 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 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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
