COVID-19 leaves some people with a troubling constellation of symptoms that has been known as long-haul COVID but now has a more formal name: postacute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC). Currently, 33 states in the US have at least 1 clinic dedicated to caring for patients with PASC. Aluko Hope, MD, a pulmonary and critical care physician, cofounded the Montefiore-Einstein COVID-19 Recovery Clinic in New York in 2020. Now the medical director of the Long Covid-19 Program at the Oregon Health & Sciences University, Dr Hope provides insight into the care provided at a post-COVID-19 clinic.
