Recovering from COVID-19? Here are some challenges you may experience.

We now know that being COVID free does not mean recovery. Patients are known to suffer varying after-effects inclduing weakness, P.T.S.D., cognitive decline, among other issues. The New Yorker interviewed Dr. Alfred Gellhorn, one of our Rehabilitation Medicine physicians redeployed on the frontlines, on what health after COVID looks like. Dr. Gellhorn spoke about the importance of rehabilitation to build back strength and cognitive function, in addition to the importance of addressing the mental issues that patients may be suffering.

COVID-19 Update for our Patients

Patients who have an appointment scheduled should be in touch with our office to determine if they should:

  • Keep the scheduled appointment
  • Convert the appointment to a video-visit
  • Defer the appointment until a later date when they are able to see the physician in person.

Staff will assist them with adjusting their appointment if needed, including conversion to a televisit.
