PREPARING FOR YOUR VISIT




To help make your visit as efficient and comfortable as possible, prior to your visit please download and complete the *Initial Consultation Form and the Columbia Patient Forms, which can be found on this web site. Bring these forms with you to your initial appointment.
*Note: To view or download the forms, you will need a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader. You may download it free here.


If it is not possible to keep your appointment, please call at least one day prior to the scheduled date. Please arrive on-time for your appointment.



Our office is located at 51 West 51st street, Suite 380.

If you come by automobile, unless you are very lucky and find a parking place, you must park in a garage. The garages are expensive; the closer the garage to the office the more expensive it is.

Please be sure to obtain and bring with you any medical records (reports, history, x-rays) that have been done in the past.

The fee for your initial visit is $600.00, and must be paid at the time of the visit. We participate with only a few insurance programs for direct billing. If you have appropriate documentation for one of these insurance programs, including a referral if necessary, you will be expected to pay only your standard co-pay at the time of the visit. Patients eligible for Medicare should bring their Medicare card with them. If you are covered by an insurance program that we do not participate in, you are expected to pay the entire fee at the time of the appointment. Following your appointment, you will be provided with a standard insurance billing form, which can be used to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company. If laboratory tests are ordered, billing and payment for these is required at the testing site at the time of the testing. Our office and the hospital accept Master Card, Visa and American Express, in addition to cash or check.

We look forward to working with you. If you have additional questions, please feel free to call us at 646-426-3876 (646-42-NEURO).
