“Traveling into Manhattan is sometimes challenging for patients from Brooklyn, especially when they aren’t feeling well,” said Andrew Rubin, vice president for clinical affairs and ambulatory care at NYU Langone Health. “Our new Brooklyn Heights location brings NYU Langone’s high quality of care directly into the neighborhoods where our patients live and work.”
Located at 186 Joralemon Street near Court Street, the center features specialists cardiology and noninvasive echocardiography, endocrinology, gastroenterology, internal medicine, interventional cardiology, nephrology, neurosurgery, physical therapy, and rheumatology
It features 26 exam rooms, bone density scanning, X-ray imaging, lab diagnostic services, and infusion treatments for rheumatologic conditions and autoimmune disorders. It also enables patients to see multiple physicians at one central location.
In the coming months, NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Brooklyn Heights also expects to open enrollment for rheumatologic condition clinical trials, providing affordable novel therapies for those who have exhausted other mainstream treatment options.
Dr. David Goddard, who founded the practice more than 20 years ago, has grown NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Brooklyn Heights from a rheumatology-centric practice into an integrated medical program, designed to serve adults with multi-system diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.
Goddard was formerly the chief of rheumatology at Long Island College Hospital.
“Having worked with NYU Langone in the past, we already know that it is committed to providing the best care for the specific needs of our patients,” said Goddard.
