Online Consult for International Patients


For years, Dr. Bronfin has provided many international patients and their physicians with second opinion. We now extend this service online to make it accessible to those patients who cannot come to us or want to make sure we have something different to offer before making the commitment to come to the United States. For your online consult, doctor will be available to assist you if you encounter difficulties during the process. Your case will be evaluated by Dr. Bronfin specializing in neurology and clinical neurophysiology, and your own local physician will participate in the process by providing your medical information and reviewing your online consult with you. Should you decide to come to New York to be evaluated in person, we will be happy to give you the personalized care you and your family need with special attention to your comfort and your medical and cultural needs.

  • Please note that online consultations are available only to international patients at this time.

What is an online consult

An online consult is a convenient way for an international patient to receive a second opinion from a board certified world class specialist without having to travel to New York. Perhaps you would like an expert to confirm your neurological diagnosis, review your current treatment plan, and explore other possible treatments outside your country, including clinical trials. Although an online consult can be more convenient than an on-site evaluation, there are important limitations that you must keep in mind. An online consult may be less comprehensive as it is solely based on the information you provide, while lacking a physical evaluation. In addition, receiving an online consult does not mean that physician is in charge of your care, and our online program will not allow for direct interaction with the reviewing physician. If direct interaction is very important to you, please consider making an appointment. To request an appointment, please call 646-754-1642 or use our online form.

What will your online consult cover?

Dr. Bronfin will review your medical records, diagnostic tests, and will render an opinion that will include a diagnosis, diagnostic assessment, treatment summary and recommendations.

Payment Information

Online consults start at $500 for a comprehensive review of your records, films, biopsies and medication records.
Note: Online consult is not covered by insurance programs. You may pay for this service via credit card or bank wire transfer. You may want to talk with your insurance company to find out if reimbursement is an option.
