NYU Langone Health has opened a multispecialty outpatient care center in Brooklyn Heights, enhancing access to its world-class clinical care and research for patients who live and work in downtown Brooklyn and lower Manhattan.
“Traveling into Manhattan is sometimes challenging for patients from Brooklyn, especially when they aren’t feeling well,” said Andrew Rubin, vice president for clinical affairs and ambulatory care at NYU Langone Health. “For this reason, we are thrilled to enhance access through our new Brooklyn Heights location, which brings NYU Langone’s high quality of care directly into the neighborhoods where our patients live and work.”
The interdisciplinary team at NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Brooklyn Heights, located at 186 Joralemon Street near Court Street, include specialists in the following clinical areas:
- cardiology and noninvasive echocardiography
- internal medicine
- interventional cardiology
- neurosurgery (consultations and follow-up appointments)
- physical therapy
The 15,000 square foot practice spans the building’s 8th and 11th floors, and the lower level, and features 26 exam rooms, bone density scanning, X-ray imaging, lab diagnostic services, and infusion treatments for rheumatologic conditions and autoimmune disorders. As do other NYU Langone multispecialty locations, this new care center enables patients to see multiple physicians at one central location.
In the coming months, NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Brooklyn Heights also expects to open enrollment for rheumatologic condition clinical trials, providing affordable novel therapies for those who have exhausted other mainstream treatment options.
David H. Goddard, MD, who founded the practice more than 20 years ago, has grown NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Brooklyn Heights from a rheumatology-centric practice into an integrated medical program designed to serve adults with multisystem diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.
“Having worked with NYU Langone in the past, we already know that it is committed to providing the best care for the specific needs of our patients,” said Goddard. A longtime, active member of the community, Goddard was formerly the chief of rheumatology at Long Island College Hospital (LICH). He has also worked in Nassau County and Manhattan.
Part of the larger NYU Langone network of more than 230 locations, NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Brooklyn Heights providers have access to up-to-date medical records and test results for their patients via Epic, NYU Langone’s electronic health record system, even when patients are seen at other NYU Langone Health locations—such as the nearby NYU Langone Health—Cobble Hill emergency department. Patients can also manage appointments, communicate with physicians, and remotely refill prescriptions through Epic’s patient portal, NYU Langone Health MyChart.
