Baylor College of Medicine has opened a post-COVID care clinic for the recovery of coronavirus patients in Houston.
At the Baylor clinic, people who experience long-lasting effects from COVID-19 – also known as long-haul – will receive treatment for the new side effects or lingering symptoms of their initial infection.
“We believe that patients with long-term symptoms of COVID-19 need a dedicated multidisciplinary approach to their care that will help them on the road to recovery,” Dr Fidaa Shaib, associate professor of medicine in the Pulmonary section, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine at Baylor said in a press release. “This clinic will provide comprehensive yet personalized care focusing on the experience and condition of each patient to facilitate meaningful recovery.”
In order to determine a patient’s specific needs, the clinic will provide a questionnaire that will assess how the virus has affected the patient, then the patient will meet with a pulmonologist who will provide an assessment and a personalized management plan for each case.
The clinic offers in-person and virtual appointments. Staff recommend in-person visits so clinicians can perform a thorough assessment and examination.
An appointment can be made by calling (713) 798-2400.
The Post-COVID Care Clinic is located on the Baylor Medicine McNair Campus at 7200 Cambridge Street.
