More about LONG COVID:

If you have post COVID symptoms months after acute illness we can help! The common symptoms include:

  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Fast Heart Rate at rest but more so when moving or exercising
  • Chronic Pain
  • Dizziness
  • Memory and Cognitive problems
  • Shortness of Breath when moving or exercising 
  • Other symptoms

At GW Center for Integrative Medicine, we are dedicated to not only providing whole person, integrated medicine but also addressing public health crises as they develop. In our commitment to this mission, we are opening a GW CIM Long COVID Care Center. 10-20% of recovered COVID patients develop lingering symptoms leading to long term disability. Treating these patients requires a multi-disciplinary approach in which the integrated medicine model is well suited.

While we just now opening the formal Long COVID clinic we have already worked with hundreds of Long COVID patients most referred to us from GW Medical Faculty Associates (GW MFA) but some found us by word of mouth.

Our team Ashley Drapeau PA-C, L.Ac along with Sharon Democker, MD, Mikhail Kogan, MD, Angela Gabriel, L.Ac., Tiffany Hoyt, DAOM and others are pioneering a program to provide healing for patients with Long COVID. In particular, Ashley is passionate about this clinic as she has suffered from long COVID herself. As a medical practitioner for over a decade, she was shocked at the lack of treatment options, research, and collaboration that conventional medicine has to offer. She wishes to share her knowledge, skills, and experience with patients to help alleviate their suffering and position them towards recovery. 

At this time, Long COVID is a constellation of symptoms that requires an individual approach to management. At GW CIM, we will take a comprehensive whole person intake and then meet with each individual patient to create a care plan. We will ease symptoms by treating the complexity of this disease with a multitude of evidence based approaches. This may include: medication management, supplementation, including IV Vitamins, diagnostic testing, acupuncture, dietary counseling, PT, OT, and speech/cognitive therapy. GW CIM’s Long COVID Care Center is looking forward to supporting and working with you to achieve your goals. 

GW CIM Long COVID program operates in close collaboration with GW Medical Faculty Associates (GWMFA). While GWMFA specialized Long COVID clinic is closing its doors due to lack of insurance reimbursements we will continue to work closely with the following GW Departments and Centers:
