Virtual consultations via telemedicine are available!
Dr. Yagoda understands that for those who live outside of the New York Metropolitan area, or outside of the United States, the expense of traveling to New York for a consultation can be prohibitive! For some who live in New York City, it can be quite difficult to arrange for time off of work to attend a consultation in person. In recognition of these circumstances, Dr. Yagoda is pleased to offer virtual consultations via telemedicine.
During a telemedicine consultation, you will be able to meet Dr. Yagoda in the comfort of your home or office in order to help you gather information and determine which doctor to choose.
