The doctor misdiagnosed me with a condition I clearly don’t have (costrocondritis) and had no knowledge of Long COVID (even thought I was referred specifically to her through the Northwestern Long Covid clinic). She was very polite and did not rush me through the appointment, which I did appreciate.

Dr. Evans completely dismissed all of my concerns and symptoms, advising that I seek out therapy for my “anxiety” I have never had or been diagnosed with, and told me I should try meditation and yoga as the symptoms I’m feeling “are in my head” and every time I feel them, they get worse because my mind makes them worse. Since my symptoms began after I had Covid, she told me that it was because I haven’t been active after I had Covid, despite the fact that I told her I workout 4x/week and participate in cardiovascular-heavy activities 2-3x/week. She went over my Holter monitor results with me and scrolled past all of the times I triggered the monitor and continuously told me everything was “normal,” despite my triggers to the monitor and concerns of a high HR while just sitting on the couch and laying in bed. She told me to workout more, do more cardio, and see a therapist. I left my appointment feeling frustrated, defeated, and in tears, as I have had 5+ doctors and specialists over the past 2.5 years since having Covid tell me that my heart is “normal” and I just needed someone to listen to me. It is NOT normal to feel my heart beat out of my chest while just laying in bed with no outside stressors or things to make me anxious. I felt as thought Dr. Evans did not listen to me as she would “answer” my questions and concerns with what seemed to be a premeditated answer, regardless of what I would say. I feel no closer to finding the answers I so desperately need and again, I feel completely defeated and unmotivated to continue to seek out answers and interventions that may help me.

Disclosures

Kaleigh L. Evans, MD reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
