For Patients

At Columbia, we offer comprehensive, personalized care for pulmonary conditions. Because respiratory diseases may require support from different specialties, our care teams will coordinate your treatment with experts and programs across Columbia.

Our staff can answer any questions you may have about our programs, help schedule an appointment, or assist with a referral. When you contact us to make your appointment, we will also explain what steps you should take to prepare and what medical records and information you should bring.

Make an Appointment

To make an appointment with one of our programs:

Critical Care

Physicians can call 800-697-7828 (NYP-STAT) to initiate a transfer request, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Patients or their family members interested in transfer should make the request through doctors at their current hospitals.

Check Your Insurance

We recommend that you contact your insurance company before your visit to:

  • Verify your benefits and coverage
  • Understand any co-payments, co-insurance, or deductibles that may apply

Connect Patient Portal

Our Connect online portal offers a number of convenient tools, including messaging, online bill payment, and access to their health care information—all in one secure location. Your Connect account covers Columbia, NewYork-Presbyterian, and Weill Cornell Medicine—so you'll only need one account to access information for all three institutions.
