Caring for Patients with Long COVID in Los Angeles

We are experienced in the treatment of long COVID, also known as post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC), which may require a variety of approaches depending on the individual patient and their symptoms.

Caring for patients with long COVID involves a comprehensive approach to manage the ongoing symptoms and health problems that can persist for weeks or months after a person has recovered from the acute phase of COVID-19.

Comprehensive Long COVID Care May Involve:

  • Monitoring and tracking of symptoms: Long COVID patients may have a wide range of symptoms, and it's important to monitor and track their symptoms over time to assess their progress.
  • Multidisciplinary care: Long COVID patients may require care from a range of healthcare providers, including their primary care physician Dr. Pittman, specialists, and rehabilitation therapists, to manage their complex needs. Dr. Pittman will coordinate the treatment and recommendations of the medical team.
  • Physical therapy: Many long COVID patients experience fatigue, weakness, and breathing difficulties, and physical therapy can help to improve these symptoms and improve overall physical function. Dr. Pittman is knowledgeable about the best physical and occupational therapists in the Los Angeles area for Long COVID.
  • Mental health support: Long COVID can have a significant impact on a person's mental health, and patients may benefit from psychological support, including support groups.
  • We evaluate and treat many conditions associated with Long COVID, including:
    - CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)
    - MCAS (Mast Cell Activation Syndrome)
    - POTS (Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome)
  • Medications: Depending on the symptoms and health problems, patients with long COVID may require medications to manage symptoms and associated health conditions.
  • Lifestyle modifications: Making changes to lifestyle habits, such as exercise, diet, and stress management, can help to improve overall health and reduce the impact of long COVID.
  • Close follow-up and monitoring: Regular follow-up appointments and monitoring are important for long COVID patients, to assess their progress and adjust treatment plans as needed.
