Patient Information for CTA's
Telehealth Services - COVID-19
At North Suffolk Cardiology, your health and safety are our top priorities. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and are taking all the necessary precautions to ensure everyone's safety.
In response to this, we have added a Telehealth service to our practice so we can continue to serve your medical needs during this time.
Our platform is HIPAA secure and your physician can conduct your exam in a safe, virtual environment. Please call us at (631) 941-2000 to schedule your Telehealth visit. Same-day visits are available.
Looking for a cardiologist who speaks another language? Several of our cardiologists are bilingual. Please make your request known when you call to schedule an appointment if you have a need for a cardiologist who speaks any of the following languages: Greek, Russian, Spanish and American Sign Language.
Appointments may be scheduled at any of our four locations Monday through Friday from 8:00am - 5:00pm with extended hours in our East Setauket location until 7:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If you are a new patient, we ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your appointment to complete all the necessary paperwork. To better serve your medical needs, we ask that you provide us with as much medical information as possible. Please consult with your primary care physician to release your medical records. They can be faxed to our main location or you may bring them to our office at the time of your appointment.
For your convenience, you can complete your paperwork in advance of your appointment. Your options are:
- Print and complete the forms listed beow
- Using Adobe Acrobat Reader, download, fill-in and print the forms below
- Request the forms to be mailed to your home
Once completed, remember to bring your forms with you to your appointment.
Good Faith Estimate
If you are uninsured, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
- You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
- Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
- If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
- Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call our office.
North Suffolk Cardiology currently works with over 30 major insurance companies. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks or credit cards for co-payments. Please be sure to bring your insurance card with you at the time of your appointment. If you are covered by an HMO, you must bring your referral with you. Our staff is always working on accommodating our patients and their insurance providers. Please call our office at (631) 941-2000 to find out if your carrier is on our continuously expanding list of providers.
