Dr. David Rosenberg estimates it affects 20%-30% of patients.

“Generally the patients that have continued symptoms are the ones we’re most concerned about. You look at these different individuals that have acute COVID, probably 20-30% of individuals can have long term manifestations.”

The clinic will be located at UH Ahuja Medical Center in Beachwood. They will offer both in-person and virtual care to patients. To make an appointment call 216-859-5032.
