Most people with COVID-19 improve within weeks, but some experience long-term side effects, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Post-COVID-19 conditions range from “new, recurrent or persistent health problems” that patients may experience for weeks after they are first infected with the virus, Stony Brook Medicine officials said.
The Stony Brook Post-COVID-19 Clinic opened in November 2020 at Stony Brook Medicine’s Advanced Specialty Care in Commack to provide ongoing care and assessment for adults recovering from the virus. At the clinic, patients have access to a range of physicians such as primary care physicians and specialists in cardiology, pulmonary and vascular medicine, nephrology, neurology, as well as health care providers.
