Insurance Plans We Accept
Most of our physicians participate in Medicare and many commercial insurance plans. Specific participation information about each physician is available on his or her individual profile.
For First-Time Patients
If possible, take a few moments prior to your appointment to download and complete the necessary patient forms and bring them with you to your visit. This will allow us to process your paperwork quickly and reduce your waiting time.
What to Bring to Your Appointment

- Co-payment (collected at the time of service)
- Referrals (if applicable)
Columbia Otolaryngology offers same-day appointments at our Harkness Pavilion location. One of our skilled nurse practitioners or physician assistants will be able to see you rapidly, and either diagnose and treat your problem, or begin the evaluation in a timely manner. If needed, a follow-up visit on a later day will be arranged with one of our Otolaryngology—Head and Neck surgery physicians. To make an appointment Monday through Friday, please call (212) 305-8555 (adult) or (212) 305-8933 (pediatric) and ask for a same-day appointment.
