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.
Our rehabilitation team has created a rehabilitation program as well as guide to recovery post COVID-19. For more information on both our program and the guide, check out Weill Cornell's COVID-19 Recovery Clinic page.

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

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