New clinic for patients with persistent COVID symptoms

WashU Med has opened a clinic for patients with persistent symptoms or complications of COVID-19. Patients with continued symptoms, or “long COVID,” continue to have health problems long after their acute illness has resolved. The symptoms and complications after SARS-CoV-2 infection are variable and wide-ranging and can include problems with the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, blood clotting, and sleep and mood disorders.

The Care and Recovery (CARE) after COVID Clinic, directed by Maureen Lyons, MD, is accepting patients who have had a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 by a nasal swab test, a saliva test, or a blood antibody test.

Eligible patients can schedule by calling 314-996-8103 and asking for an appointment in the CARE Clinic.
