Post-COVID Care Program

We have doctors in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and on Long Island.

COVID-19 Clinical Trials
Our experts are advancing knowledge about all facets of COVID-19 through research.

Experts at NYU Langone’s Post-COVID Care Program provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment for people experiencing long-term symptoms or other lasting health impacts after COVID-19 infection.


In U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” rankings, NYU Langone is tied for No. 1 in the nation for pulmonology and lung surgery.

Many people recover completely from the disease. But some people have persistent COVID-19 symptoms or develop new health problems in the weeks or months after contracting the virus. This can happen even if they had only mild symptoms initially or showed no signs of infection. This condition is sometimes referred to as “long COVID” or “long-haul COVID.” In the medical community it is known as post-acute sequelae of COVID-19, or PASC.

Some of the common long-term symptoms people experience after COVID-19 include the following:

  • fatigue
  • worsened symptoms after physical or mental activities
  • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • memory or concentration problems
  • chest pains
  • fast or pounding heartbeat
  • depression, anxiety, or both
  • headache
  • dizziness and lightheadedness
  • sleep disturbances
  • loss of smell or taste
  • muscle pain
  • fever

COVID-19 is an infection that can affect different areas of the body, including the lungs, heart, kidneys, brain, and muscles. Because of this, some people may develop other health conditions or serious complications, such as pulmonary fibrosis, heart problems, kidney problems, stroke, seizures, cognitive and memory issues, or weakness that limits physical activity.

Leading Treatment for COVID-19

Because COVID-19 is a new disease, many healthcare providers may not have experience with these persistent or new health conditions as they relate to COVID-19. Since the beginning of the pandemic, NYU Langone doctors have treated large numbers of people with COVID-19. This has allowed us to collect significant volumes of data quickly. This experience, along with our focus on these long-term symptoms, has given our team the skills and experience necessary to understand and address their impact on your health and give you the best possible chance of full recovery.

Our Post-COVID Care Program specialists, including primary care doctors, pulmonologists, cardiologists, neurologists, mental health professionals, and physiatrists—doctors who specialize in rehabilitation medicine—collaborate to create a personalized treatment plan for you. We use the most sophisticated diagnostic tools and treatments, including medical and lifestyle options. Our goal is to provide comprehensive and coordinated care that supports your recovery and overall health and wellbeing.

At NYU Langone, our experts have been on the front lines of the pandemic, from caring for the first patients to testing COVID-19 vaccines and advising health agencies. Our doctors have gained valuable experience and insights that guide the care we provide.

Evaluation for the Post-COVID Care Program

We evaluate and treat people ages 18 and older who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or related health problems persisting at least 4 weeks after the initial infection. We do not require proof of a COVID-19 diagnosis to make an appointment with our program.

Schedule a Consultation

Experts in our Post-COVID Care Program evaluate and treat people who meet the following guidelines:

  • are age 18 years or older
  • still have symptoms from a suspected or diagnosed case of COVID-19 at least four weeks after symptom onset

We do not require proof of a COVID-19 diagnosis to make an appointment with our program.

We recommend all new patients schedule a consultation by calling 212-263-6115. At this first appointment, our nurse practitioner takes your health history and discusses your symptoms with you. Based on this information, we provide you with referrals to the appropriate post-COVID care specialists, who complete a full evaluation to determine the severity and scope of your symptoms and create a treatment plan that aids your recovery.

If you have received a post-COVID specialty referral or know which specialist or specific doctor you wish to see, you may schedule an appointment directly with them.

For questions about our program, call us at 212-263-6115.

If you currently have symptoms of COVID-19 or a new positive test for COVID-19, schedule an appointment with an NYU Langone doctor through our Virtual Urgent Care service.

Participate in COVID-19 Research

NYU Langone experts have led the field in advancing our understanding of COVID-19 and post-COVID conditions. When you receive care through the Post-COVID Care Program, you may participate in our COVID-19 clinical trials and enroll in observational research. All of our research efforts aim to improve care and outcomes for people who have had COVID-19.

We are actively enrolling adult patients who have long-COVID symptoms in a National Institutes of Health (NIH)–funded Post-COVID Registry. Participants in this study will be asked to provide blood and stool samples at different timepoints, complete health-related questionnaires, and allow the research team to review their COVID-19 history.

We are also looking for patients with a history of COVID-19 but no long-COVID symptoms to join our healthy control group. Healthy control group participants will be asked to provide one blood and stool sample and complete one health-related questionnaire.

Support for Our Patients with Long COVID

Post-COVID Care Program psychologists have developed the Beyond Long COVID: Skill-Building and Wellness Group. The program is designed to provide participants with evidence-based skills to manage symptoms and offer a supportive space to share and process experiences with long COVID and the COVID-19 pandemic.

This virtual program consists of 12 weekly 60-minute sessions guided by a psychologist from our team. Each session focuses on a specific topic to allow optimal learning of concepts and skills. Topics include the following:

  • overview of the biology of long COVID
  • strategies for managing sleep and fatigue
  • techniques for navigating brain fog and attention issues
  • coping mechanisms for anxiety and grief, and other mental health topics
