New York is a destination city for business and leisure travelers from around the world. The hospital itself is conveniently located in Manhattan and convenient to all forms of transportation.

Procedure costs are determined on a case by case basis. Once you are considering New York Eye and Ear Infirmary for medical or surgical care, your medical records will be requested and reviewed by the appropriate specialist at our hospital. An assessment will be made on the type of intervention required and fee determined. The price will be an all-inclusive rate for your care. Should you have private insurance, we will certainly review that information, too.
Our cancellation policy is flexible. As long as we are notified at least two weeks in advance, there will be no charges. We will also make our best attempt to find an alternative, more suitable date for your procedure. In the event you cancel your surgery due to medical reasons, a minimal charge will be made to cover administrative expenses that may have been incurred.
While hotels in New York can be expensive, exchange rates work in favor of international patients who find their stay less expensive than comparable accommodations in other major capitals around the world. Several hotels in Manhattan and in the greater NYC area offer discounted rates to New York Eye and Ear Infirmary patients, and we offer discounts to various cultural and entertainment venues, too.
Traveling to New York for care, patients will need to factor in a post-surgical recovery period, which will vary by procedure. Two weeks should be sufficient for almost all procedures. There are many places to convalesce in the area, and our administrators will discuss these options with patients prior to finalizing a procedure at the hospital.
Depending on your age and medical history, presurgical lab tests may be requested prior to the booking of your surgical procedure. If they are not, such tests may be performed prior to your hospitalization upon arrival in the USA. Please be advised, however, that even with existing test results, the physician may request to have them redone prior to surgery.
New York Eye and Ear Infirmary employs a culturally sensitive and diverse staff of 600 employees who speak over 25 languages. For patients who do not speak English, the hospital provides interpretation services from the time of admission to discharge. When necessary, every effort will also be made to accommodate interpretation services for patients that may need them before or after their stay.
