Patient Care

Stony Brook Medicine offers Telehealth visits with many of our healthcare providers at most of our practices. This allows our patients to receive our high-quality care from the safety and privacy of their home. To see if your needs can be met virtually, please call your Stony Brook health provider's office.

And if you've already booked a Telehealth visit and have questions about connecting to Microsoft Teams for your visit, you can call one of our representatives at
(631) 638-0597, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm. They will be happy to assist you. If you require support outside of these hours, the steps outlined here can help ensure that your appointment goes smoothly.

While we offer a wide range of Telehealth services that can be accessed from the safety and privacy of your home, some of our Telehealth services are especially noteworthy for how they address the unique needs of the communities we serve across Suffolk County.

Suffolk County-specific programs include:

  • Mobile Stroke Unit Program -  A first for Long Island and designed to provide specialized, life-saving care to people within the critical moments of stroke before they even get to the hospital. This revolutionary pre-hospital process markedly accelerates the time to make an accurate stroke diagnosis, allows for time-sensitive stroke therapies to be administered earlier, and allows for the transport of stroke patients directly to the most appropriate hospital for the level of care they require, the first time. 

  • Telepsychiatry - A collaboration with behavioral health specialists on the East End that offers a confidential videoconferencing option to our East End community. These direct, private interactions between you and a Stony Brook Medicine psychiatrist can be used for an evaluation, a therapy session (individual, group or family), and for patient education and medication management. It also provides the opportunity for consults between members of our joint behavioral health team.

  • Teleneurology - The speed, privacy, accuracy and convenience of our telenerology program means that in an emergency, patients may not need to be transported from the Emergency Department of Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital for neurologic evaluations, allowing the patient to receive medical services in their own community on the East End.

  • Pediatric Telemedicine Program - Another first in Suffolk County, this program helps improve access to specialized emergency and critical care for pediatric patients in need of medical transport from Stony Brook Southampton Hospital to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. 

If you're a Stony Brook healthcare provider and want to receive Telehealth privileges, please contact your department administrator.
