An appointment is required to access these services. Check your insurance plan to determine if a referral from a physician is required.

For some medical conditions, your provider may refer you to a Specialist for consultation and treatment. Specialists collaborate with your primary care provider to ensure that you receive the appropriate evaluation and treatment of your condition. NYU Student Health Center has several board-certified Specialists that offer comprehensive coverage of a wide variety of Specialty services.

If you require additional speciality care that is not offered at SHC, you may be referred to an outside Specialist that can provide the appropriate services.  If this occurs, your provider will discuss the options with you to ensure that the best possible treatment is offered.
