Ask a Health Information Specialist

At NYU Langone, we understand how important it is for people to have accurate, high-quality health information about medical conditions, medications, and procedures. Our health information specialists can provide you with reliable information to help you start conversations with doctors and loved ones about your medical concerns.

Our health information specialists answer questions from current and former NYU Langone patients, family members, and caregivers as well as potential patients. Though we can’t answer specific questions about your medical condition or symptoms, we can help with general questions such as “What is diabetes?” or “Where can I learn more about heart disease?”

We reply to your questions with an email that includes links to easy-to-understand, accurate information, as well as helpful community resources. When needed, we can help you learn more about NYU Langone doctors and their areas of specialty.

To ask a health-related question, please use our online form or call us at 212-263-7438. We will respond to your request within four business days.
