Coronavirus Update - Important Announcement


Coronavirus Announcement & Update

Posted on: March 17th, 2020 by Our Team

Dear Patients,

I’m sure all of you have been watching the news and monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) over the past several weeks as we have.  The World Health Organization is officially calling COVID-19 a pandemic.  The number of schools, businesses, and organizations closing nationwide is increasing by the minute because social distancing is the most effective way to prevent spread of this disease.  As a healthcare organization not treating COVID-19, it is our responsibility to make decisions we feel are best to protect all of our patients and staff.

UNION SQUARE EYE CARE (both our Downtown – Union Square Office (235 Park Avenue South) and our NEW Uptown – Madison Avenue Office (1815 Madison Avenue Office), will be closed for the next two weeks: 3/16/2020-3/27/2020.

We will continue to monitor the situation and notify you if our closure will be extended further.  We have made this decision for the safety of our staff and patients.

If you feel you have a true emergency and you must be seen, please go to the nearest hospital emergency room.  You can leave a message for your doctor by using our patient portal contact or call 212-844-2020.

Local Hospitals:

  • Downtown: New York Eye and Ear Infirmary (310 E 14th St, New York, NY 10003)
  • Uptown: Mt. Sinai Hospital Emergency Room (1468 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10029).

Please know we value you as a patient and are making this decision because we care about you and your health.  Rest assured that we are confident our nation and this city will weather this storm and we will happily open our doors again to take great care of you and your family.  We will reach out to you to reschedule any existing cancelled appointments when we reopen.

We hope that all of you stay safe at home with your family and take recommendations for social distancing very seriously.  This is how we will beat this together.
