Partners in your health
We’re joining with NYU Langone Health to talk about the importance of colon cancer screening. The good news is, if you work at NYU Langone Health, you get a paid day off to get screened. Dr. Dunn had his colonoscopy done at NYU Langone Health and recorded his experience to answer FAQs and relieve common concerns.
Coming this fall, if you are a Northwell Health patient and you receive an invitation to get screened at a mobile site near where you live or work, it’s because you’re past due for a screening. As an added convenience, a clinician will be on site to help you find a primary care provider if you don’t have one, and schedule your first appointment with the doctor you choose. If you are a Montefiore Medical Center patient, watch your mail for a letter from Dr. Dunn, inviting you to get screened if you are past due.
Coming Soon! Teladoc 360
If you are looking for telehealth primary care, you’ll soon be able to get information about our expanded relationship with Teladoc. You’ll be able to choose your own primary care team and build a virtual relationship with them.
Meet MiltonMilton Cruz
Emergency Department Technician,
Northwell Health-Cohen Children’s Medical Center
Don’t rely on the Internet for advice: Go for regular checkups with a doctor who knows you!
Milton Cruz knows how important a good relationship with a primary care physician (PCP) is. That’s why he’s been seeing Dr. Marie S. Percy-Leroy, a PCP at AdvantageCare Physicians—which provides culturally and linguistically accessible care throughout New York City—regularly for the past 15 years. Milton originally went to Dr. Percy-Leroy for a checkup before starting the physically demanding work involved in emergency medical services.
“I have a great relationship with her,” says Milton, who believes his connection with Dr. Percy-Leroy keeps him healthy because he’s comfortable talking to her about almost everything. “There are no surprises,” he says. “If I’m doing something I shouldn’t, or if I’m doing something that will keep me on the right track, she’ll let me know.” Milton credits this partnership with providing the support he needs to maintain a healthy weight, control his blood pressure and even quit smoking. His advice? “Don’t rely on the Internet for advice: Go for regular checkups with a doctor who knows you!”
