We are now offering Comprehensive Post-COVID Health Screenings!
You tested positive for COVID-19, now what?
The weeks following infection with COVID-19 can be confusing. Some patients recover from the virus quickly, while others have lingering and often worrisome symptoms. Many people are left wondering how long their symptoms should last, when it is safe to be around family and coworkers again, and what sort of long-term effects COVID-19 might have on their health. The team at Evergreen Care Center is here to help you navigate the path to recovery from COVID-19.
What are considered “lingering” symptoms of COVID-19?
Some patients continue to experience symptoms weeks to months after initial infection with COVID-19.
These symptoms may include:
- Shortness of Breath
- Chest Pain
- Muscle weakness and joint pain
- Mental fogginess, confusion
- Anxiety and depression
What should I do if I am experiencing these symptoms?
If you tested positive and are still experiencing any of the above symptoms after 14 days, we recommend coming in to Evergreen Care Center for a post COVID-19 evaluation. Occasionally, COVID-19 can continue to impact our health and have lasting effects on the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, and brain. As time goes on, we continue to learn more about the lasting effects of this virus.
Our providers have been involved in the fight against COVID-19 since the start, offering our patients tele-visits, testing, and more. We are well equipped and dedicated to serving our community and all of their post-COVID-19 needs.
What does a post COVID-19 health screening include?
Review of your medical history and complete physical examination/vitals check
Comprehensive blood panel + COVID-19 antibodies
Return to work documentation/determination as needed
Patient specific testing as indicated: additional blood tests, EKG, echocardiogram, pulmonary function testing, chest x-ray, CAT scan, physical/occupational therapy evaluation, counseling evaluation
Preventative screening recommendations
My COVID-19 symptoms have resolved, should I still come in for a post COVID-19 screening?
Even if you feel you have completely recovered, our providers still recommend a post COVID-19 health screening. Since early last year, our healthcare system has had to shift its focus to managing the global pandemic. This has led to a delay in regular checkups and preventative screenings, which are essential parts of maintaining optimal health. The pandemic has taught us just how important it is to make our health a priority. Take this opportunity to visit us for a comprehensive checkup, see what preventative screenings you might qualify for, and take control of your health.
