Due to the surge of Covid volume and the Omicron variant, we are unable to provide quality care through our telemedicine platform. That said, we regret to temporarily disable video visits until further notice.

While our urgent care generally accepts all walk-in patients, the current surge in COVID cases from Omicron has exhausted our system like every other medical institution. Our team is working tirelessly and sacrificing their own health and wellbeing to serve the community during these unprecedented times. We ask the community in return to be patient and gracious to our staff. Until patient volumes normalize, we have no option but to limit how many patients we see. We sincerely apologize for our short comings and assure you we are doing our best to accommodate as many patients as we physically can.

Every evening at 8pm(5pm Sat and Sun), our COVID testing schedule opens for the following day. If you are unable to find a COVID testing appointment for the day, we recommend you visit our website after 8pm(5pm Sat and Sun) to find a convenient time to schedule your COVID test for the following day.

Post COVID-19 Complications

Lingering Symptoms After COVID-19

With the peak of flu and COVID-19 season here, many more patients may contract one or both of the viruses this winter. For patients with COVID-19, symptoms can be minor and do not require emergency treatment, or extreme and require hospitalization. Either way, long-lasting symptoms have caused patients to seek medical attention to restore their health.

Learn more about some of the most common complications following a case of COVID-19, and what to do.

Multiorgan Symptoms

Severe cases of COVID-19 can drastically affect a patient’s organs — especially those with an autoimmune condition. Many report lung, kidney, heart, and cognitive complications as they recover.

Patients also risk experiencing blood clots from prolonged time spent laying down, which have been responsible for heart attacks and strokes.

Common Symptoms Post-COVID

Many of the symptoms that a patient experiences during their battle with COVID-19 linger after they are no longer contagious or feel sick. Some patients even develop new symptoms after they’ve started to recover. These symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Tiredness
  • Chest and stomach pain
  • Fast heartbeat
  • Headaches
  • Changes in smell and taste
  • Difficulty concentrating

For patients that have been hospitalized due to COVID-19, the effects of hospitalization can also cause post-intensive care syndrome (PICS). Patients with PICS often experience:

  • Severe weakness
  • Problems with thinking
  • PTSD

Pediatric Symptoms

While COVID-19 infection is more common in adults, more children continue to test positive following the return to in-person school and other events. Symptoms of fatigue, trouble sleeping, trouble focusing, and shortness of breath are also common in children as they are in adults.

Treating Your Symptoms at Urgentology Care

It’s difficult to determine the full range of post-COVID symptoms in all patients, as scientists are still learning about the disease. If you still aren’t feeling well after you’ve started to recover from COVID-19, may need additional medical help to improve your symptoms. At Urgentology Care, we will help evaluate your symptoms and recommend the best course of treatment.
