Care approaches for COVID-19 long-haulers – Part 3

“We are seeing increased demand, lots of questions out there from people who’ve had COVID, and questions that, quite honestly, primary care physicians aren’t comfortable being able to answer.” So says Dr. Maddie McDowell of Sg2 about care for COVID long-haulers. She continues, “This is a field that’s very new, it’s evolving weekly, and so being able to provide expertise in this specific area is really important for all communities.” In this episode, we finish our examination of the COVID clinic at the University of Texas Medical Branch that does provide that expertise.
