Non-traditional evening and weekend hours, house calls, group appointments, and telemedicine make access to care easier for busy New Yorkers.

Nightingale Wellness does not accept insurance but don't fret. Appointments are affordable and probably cost less than your last haircut or night out.
Think of the cash payment as a high-level co-pay. You won't receive a scary "This is not a bill" notice and you won't have to haggle with your insurance company over network coverage.
To be clear, we aren't encouraging you to dump your insurance plan. Use it to pay for lab work, prescriptions, specialists, and hospital visits.
Go to someone who accepts your insurance. Then come to Gail when you want to feel validated, heard, and respected.

"You rarely find someone who is so willing to listen, take the time to go through all your options, and make sure you feel comfortable, safe and satisfied with the care you are getting. Cannot recommend her enough."

"...I really appreciate that meeting with her felt more like a conversation than an assessment. I also really appreciate that it didn't feel she was talking down to me, like I've felt with most doctors. She took the time to explain everything to me, and I like that she explained things to me without making me feel incompetent, like doctors tend to do... I love that I'm not sitting on tissue paper in a freezing cold room while talking to my doctor. Instead I'm sitting in her office talking to her, and that makes it feel much more relaxing, much more pleasant, and much more personal."

What is a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners (or NPs) are registered nurses who hold graduate degrees and can diagnose, treat, and prescribe for patients in different areas of healthcare depending on their education, experience, and location.
What is the difference between a Physician and a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners are trained using a different approach, called the Nursing Model, when caring for patients. The Nursing Model prepares practitioners to partner with their patients and create an achievable holistic treatment plan.
Does a Nurse Practitioner work under a Medical Doctor?
That depends on the state where you live. In New York, legislation allows Nurse Practitioners to care for their own patients after working 3,600 hours under the supervision of a Physician. Nightingale Wellness maintains relationships with Medical Doctors who are available if needed.
What illnesses are treated at Nightingale Wellness?
Common illnesses include cold and flu symptoms, allergies, cough, asthma, sore throat, ear ache, back pain, joint pain, injuries, heartburn, constipation, gastrointestinal problems, food poisoning, insect bites and stings, wart removal, skin problems, ADHD, depression, anxiety, fatigue, headache, vertigo, bladder infections, sexually transmitted infections, nail fungus, pink eye, and so much more. We remove sutures and staples; flush ear wax; test for mono, strep, and flu; test for pregnancy; prescribe birth control; prepare you for travel; test for Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses, help with smoking cessation; provide Truvada (PrEP)management; refill prescriptions; and then some.
My doctor is great but I can't get an appointment. Can I see both of you?
Yes! We can work as a team with your MD. Continue the complex care plan you have established with your favorite Physician and come to us for the day-to-day stuff.
Why not go to an urgent care or chain clinic that takes my insurance?
While urgent care or walk-in clinics are easy to access, they are not designed to provide long term support. A relationship with a primary care provider can help you achieve health-related milestones and minimize the stress of making important health decisions.
What should I call Nurse Practitioner Gail Ingram?
"Gail" is fine. But if you want to get fancy, please use the title "Nurse Practitioner" or "NP" instead of "Nurse," "Nurse Gail," or "Doctor."
Appointments in the Chelsea office are offered Sundays and Mondays. House calls and telehealth are available other days of the week.
