Become a Patient

The Ryan Network is committed to reducing or eliminating financial barriers to care. Patients are welcome regardless of ability to pay. You will never be turned away. We offer a sliding fee-discount program based on family size and income. You must apply with a Ryan staff member to see if you qualify. In addition, the Ryan Network offers discounts on health insurance deductibles, co-payments, and co-insurance when possible. Payment plans are available to help you afford your care, and to allow you to pay over time. Staff will work with you to make sure that cost does not prevent you from receiving needed health care services.


If you would like to become a patient, you must first meet with our Registration specialists. You are also invited to pre-register through the  MyCare Portal to cut-down on paperwork when you arrive.

For an appointment, please call 212-749-1820 or request an appointment through your MyCare Portal.
