Second Opinion & Telephone Consults

Many people seek a second opinion from our expert colorectal surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian/ Columbia University Medical. The Division of Colorectal Surgery understands that surgery is a big decision and can be scary. Every effort is made upfront to schedule our patients for a complete and thorough examination with a colorectal surgeon.

Here are a few steps to take if you are seeking a second opinion from one of our surgeons:

  • Call our office at 212.342.1155
  • Fill out the medical history questionnaire forms
  • Have you medical records (office notes, radiology imaging results, laboratory data, colonoscopy reports, pathology reports) faxed to us at 212.305.0267
  • Bring outside radiology discs to your appointment

If you can’t visit us in person, we offer Telephone Consults.  We will conduct a detailed review of your medical records, and you can then discuss with one of our surgeons over the phone. Call our office at the number above to set up a consultation or to ask us any other questions.
