Lyon Primary Care

Primary Care Physicians located in Midtown, New York, NY

Dear Patients and Friends,

As you know, our office is open. We will also continue to schedule telemedicine appointments for the indefinite future.

You may schedule a live appointment for pre-op clearance, physicals, gyn checkups, and certain acute visits for which telemedicine is not appropriate.  Anyone with possible COVID symptoms, loss of smell or taste, or anyone who has had recent contact with an individual with COVID, cannot be seen in our office.

In order to streamline and accelerate your contacts with us, please email all inquiries and appointment requests to Please give as much detail possible as to what your needs are. We will then triage all requests, including appointment requests, referrals, refills etc. If the matter is urgent, you may call our staff, but we will have only one person answering the phone from 8 AM until 5 PM, Monday through Friday.

In order to treat patients while working to protect you and our staff from exposure to COVID-19, we have adjusted some of our policies in accordance with CDC guidelines:

  • You must wear a face covering in our office at all times.
  • You must complete and return, via the patient portal, all requested forms and paperwork, 24 hours prior to your appointment time. (Regrettably, we will have to reschedule your visit if we don’t receive the forms in time.) These include a COVID-19 pre-screening form for live visits, and requests for insurance and credit card information.
  • Please come to your appointment alone.
  • As mentioned above, we cannot see anyone who is at increased risk for COVID. If you think you may be infected, have been around anyone who may have been infected, or if you are concerned you are at increased risk, please request a telemedicine appointment, rather than a live visit, to discuss. We want to help you. 
  • To ensure safety in our office, we have devised a system which will keep our waiting room empty, and where you only see the front desk person for a temperature check before you see your provider.

We realize that all of this is a lot to digest, but we’re doing our best to keep you protected during these extraordinary times. Hoping you’re all safe and healthy, and looking forward to seeing you soon.
