East River Gastroenterology and Nutrition

Practice Policies

Emergency Care

Patients can be seen on a same-day or next-day basis for urgent issues. For after-hours emergencies, call our regular office number. Dr. Goldstein or a covering physician is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Cancellation and Billing Policies

If you must cancel an appointment, we ask that you do so within 24 hours of the scheduled time as a courtesy to our staff and other patients. A fee will be charged for missed appointments that are not cancelled with at least 24 business hours notice.

All fees for services rendered are due at the time of service. For patients with insurance, this includes all co-payments and deductibles. To avoid unanticipated charges on the day of service, we kindly remind you that it is your responsibility as a patient to verify coverage with your insurance provider in advance of your office visit.

Please also note that if you are seeing Dr. Goldstein as a specialist and your insurance company requires a referral, it is your responsibility to have that referral generated prior to the time of your visit to ensure coverage.
