Cedars-Sinai offers program to treat lingering effects from COVID-19

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Cedars Sinai Medical Center has a new COVID-19 Recovery Program to help people deal with lingering symptoms from the virus.

Doctors have seen many patients who initially had a very mild illness -- but then later experience long-term effects from the coronavirus.

Some of those persistent symptoms can include shortness of breath, headaches, dizziness, prolonged loss of taste or smell, brain fog, anxiety and depression.

The program includes an in-person evaluation with a specialist.

Patients must be referred by a doctor.
