Delivering personalized care for your COVID-19 recovery

Research shows that patients with COVID-19 may experience persistent post-COVID symptoms for up to six months or longer after their initial infection.[1] We are here to help.

Our team of specialists work together to help improve your physical, behavioral and cognitive health for those with long COVID, also known as long-haul COVID, chronic COVID, post-COVID syndrome and post-acute COVID-19 syndrome.

Your physiatrist may also recommend additional diagnostic tests or connect you with specialists in cardiology, pulmonology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, behavioral health, neurosciences and other related fields.
