I am a complex patient and with complex probable COVID. The team was very think outside the box and LISTENED. They treated me with respect and did not try to diagnose psych, anxiety, peri menopause - convenient diagnoses that other places have provided. I have actual brain lesions and they shared their opinions and a plan. THANK YOU Dr. Graham and Dr. Koralnik.

I think Dr Graham and Koralnik are extremely informed and good at their jobs. They have lots of expertise in long covid. However, they're more able to refer me back to my local physician as opposed to what ordering tests, or prescriptions for me. So it's helpful but not 10/10 as I'm not in Chicago

Got to see Dr. Koralnick far earlier than I expected... a little rushed to get the "back end" paperwork out of the way since I wasn't expecting to have to complete it for many months, but I was impressed and pleased by both the thoroughness of the diagnosis in terms of their information, and the prescription and referral I was given. Thank you so much for your work.
