Post-COVID Clinic

If you are struggling with lingering symptoms after recovering from COVID-19, Weill Cornell Medicine would like to partner with you to help.

Long COVID Symptoms

Most people who have COVID-19 recover completely within two to three weeks. However, many people continue to experience prolonged symptoms and complications.  Between 10 to 30 percent of people with a history of COVID-19 may continue to experience symptoms long after their initial illness.

While COVID-19 is mainly seen as a respiratory disease that affects the lungs, it can affect other organs, including the heart, brain, and kidneys. Research shows that the body's immune response may also contribute to chronic COVID-19 symptoms.

The most common chronic post-COVID-19 symptoms in adults include:

  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • “Brain fog”—including memory loss and difficulty concentrating
  • Headache
  • Change in taste or smell
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Joint pain
  • Chest pain
  • Cough
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Some people may also experience persistent heart issues and lung damage. These people often had more severe cases of the disease. For more information about post-COVID-19 symptoms, please visit the CDC for the latest information.

Care and Treatment Plan

At Weill Cornell Medicine, our physicians will perform a comprehensive initial evaluation of your health. This will help determine if any other conditions are playing a role in these symptoms.

Based on the evaluation, our providers will work with you to develop a personalized care plan. If you need to see a specialist for your symptoms, we can refer you to one of our expert physicians.
