Medical Care

All clients are offered a medical evaluation and comprehensive medical care.

Clients are encouraged to accept appointments with a primary care physician (PCP) associated with our Program. The PCP provides and coordinates ongoing medical care. All PCPs affiliated with our program are attending physicians in the Bellevue Primary Care Medical Clinic and have faculty appointments at NYU School of Medicine. All have received specialized training in caring for torture survivors. 

Program clients have access to all necessary medical, laboratory and radiographic services. Medications are provided from the Bellevue Hospital Pharmacy. Pediatric medical care is available for both children who have been tortured and the children of torture survivors. Inpatient and emergency care are also available. Individuals can be referred to subspecialty clinics at Bellevue including Dermatology, Orthopedics, Neurology, Rehabilitative Medicine, Ophthalmology, and Plastic Surgery as necessary. The level of specialized medical services available through our Program enables us to provide outstanding care and expand medical understanding of the needs of torture survivors.
