Pulmonologist for COVID & Post Covid-19 Conditions 


COVID-19 continues to affect individuals and communities across the country, and Texas Lung Care Associates is committed to providing comprehensive care and lung disease treatment to those with COVID-related and post COVID-related lung issues. Our physicians understand the stress that comes from being diagnosed with this illness, which is why we make it a priority to provide compassionate, individualized treatment plans for our patients. 

We also understand that post-COVID symptoms are a major concern, and that the long-term effects of the virus are still largely unknown. Our pulmonologists have been working hard to identify and treat post COVID respiratory conditions, such as difficulty breathing, persistent coughs, fatigue and more. We specialize in prescribing personalized treatments that aid in symptom management, so our patients can live life with as much comfort and ease as possible.

How Pulmonologists Have Been Helping COVID-19 Patients

As we continue to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share with you the steps we’re taking at Texas Lung Care Associates to help protect the health and safety of our patients and employees, which is always our top priority.

We continue to closely monitor local and national reports on the evolving impact of COVID-19. We are basing our guidance on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and applicable public health agency’s recommendations.

We have implemented guidelines that instruct any employee or patient who may develop symptoms or come into contact with infected individuals to stay home and follow the CDC’s instructions. In addition, we have implemented the following protocols for your safety and the safety of our employees and doctors:

  • We call patients 24 hours before the scheduled appointment to perform a phone screen for COVID-19 symptoms.
  • We offer a video visit with our physicians. A video visit requires one click of a button on your smart phone or your computer.
  • Video visits will have all applicable charges, the same as an office visit.

Again, the health and safety of our patients and employees are our top priority and we’re committed to doing our part to help keep you safe. Please call our clinic if you have any questions or concerns. If a representative does not answer, please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as we can.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is “long COVID?” What are the long-term effects of COVID-19?

Long COVID is a term used to describe the lingering, long-term effects or symptoms of COVID-19. Some patients may experience symptoms such as:

  • Persistent fatigue
  • Muscle aches
  • Brain fog
  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Poor sleep

These effects can last for weeks or months after the initial infection has cleared. Other potential long-term effects of COVID-19 include cardiac damage and organ damage to the lungs, heart and kidneys as well as an increased risk for stroke, blood clots and mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. 

It is important to consult with a healthcare provider if you are experiencing any of these symptoms after recovering from COVID-19 in order to receive the appropriate diagnosis and treatment.

What is post-COVID pneumonia? Do you provide long COVID treatment?

Post-COVID pneumonia is a type of lung infection that occurs after a person has been infected with the novel coronavirus. It can cause inflammation and scarring in the lungs, resulting in difficulty breathing, coughing and chest pain. 

Post-COVID pneumonia treatment typically involves antibiotics to treat the infection, as well as other medications or treatments such as steroids and oxygen therapy. Depending on the severity of the condition, hospitalization may be required. Other lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, engaging in regular exercise and consuming a healthy diet can also help with recovery. In some cases, pulmonary rehabilitation may be recommended to help restore lung function.

Does COVID cause sepsis? How can it be treated?

While sepsis can be caused by COVID-19, it is not a common symptom of infection. Sepsis occurs when the body overreacts to an infection and releases too much inflammation into the bloodstream, leading to organ failure. Sepsis treatment typically involves antibiotics or other medications such as antivirals or steroids, as well as intravenous fluids and oxygen therapy. Surgery may be needed in some cases to remove the source of infection.

Does your lung specialist near me accept insurance for COVID treatment?
