COVID-19 has affected a tremendous number of individuals resulting in a devastating loss of life in addition to a significant number of survivors with residual symptoms and long-term health issues, most of which are not well defined nor understood. 

Baylor Medicine has been on the front line of the fight against COVID-19 to prevent spread and treating affected individuals with different disease severity. At the Post-COVID Clinic, our multidisciplinary team provides care in a compassionate and holistic approach to those inflicted. 

Our goal is to evaluate and provide state-of-the-art care to patients recovering from COVID-19, incorporating telehealth, when appropriate.
