COVID-19 Long-Haul Syndrome can affect multiple organ systems in the body, including the pulmonary, hematologic, cardiovascular, neuropsychiatric, renal, endocrine, gastrointestinal/hepatobiliary and dermatologic systems. The impact on patients’ health can range from mild to severe with the latter being debilitating.
“The UH COVID Recovery Clinic was designed around the patient, so each individual has access to a vast network of medical specialists with the training and experience to recognize the syndrome, perform the appropriate diagnostic tests, and develop a personalized treatment plan to address every physical and behavioral aspect of the patient’s illness,” says Dr. Rosenberg.
Clinicians involved in treating UH COVID Recovery Clinic patients will meet regularly to discuss patients in a collaborative fashion to ensure optimal outcomes. Additionally, research protocols have been established and patients will be given the opportunity to enter these groundbreaking investigations.
UH COVID Recovery Clinic offers both in-person and virtual care based on the patient’s specific symptoms and needs. Potential specialty areas for referral include: pulmonary, cardiology, sleep medicine, psychiatry, integrative health, neurology, neuropsychology, infectious disease, otolaryngology, digestive health, and immunology.
