MetroHealth opens post-COVID-19 clinic

Cleveland-based MetroHealth has launched a virtual post-COVID-19 clinic, the health system said Feb. 16. 

COVID-19 patients who are experiencing lingering symptoms at least four weeks after the infection has cleared are eligible for the program. Currently, the post-COVID clinic is only accepting phone and video appointments. It connects patients with lingering symptoms to an appropriate specialist who can determine a treatment plan. 

"It may be medication to ease symptoms or simply getting patients who are dealing with anxiety and depression an appointment with a behavioral health specialist in a timely manner," said Elisheva Weinberger, DO, a rheumatologist who has been serving at the post-COVID clinic since it opened in December. 

A rheumatology nurse practitioner, family medicine physician and internal medicine physician are also part of the clinic's staff. 

So far, many of the patients they're seeing have breathing issues, according to a news release.
