Frequently Asked Questions About In-Person Appointments

Is Dr. Batash’s office open?
Our office remains open to care for our patients with healthcare needs.
I need to see a doctor in person but I’m concerned about being exposed to COVID-19. What are you doing to protect patients?
Please do not risk your health by delaying care. Here’s what we are doing to keep our patients healthy during their visit:

  • All Batashmedical providers and staff have been tested for COVID-19 and wear masks and other appropriate protective equipment.
  • All patients are screened for COVID-19 symptoms before arriving for their visit.
  • All providers, staff, and patients are screened for COVID-19 symptoms at the entrance of practices and given a temperature check with a “no-touch” thermometer.
  • All patients are required to wear a mask or face covering.
  • Social distancing measures will be enforced if there are patients in waiting areas.
  • Our office is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized throughout the day.
Are you still offering video visits?
Yes. Telemedicine is still a good option for our patients who prefer to have a video visit, or who may not require diagnostic testing/lab work, or treatments. We are also offering video visits to patients who are new to Batashmedical. If you aren’t sure whether you need an in-office visit or a video visit, you can contact our office.
I postponed a procedure earlier this year. When can I reschedule?
Please contact our office at (718) 830-0004 to discuss timing for your procedure.
