Medical and Legal News for Long Covid Patients Treatment available at UCLA

By Montecito Journal   |   June 20, 2023

Santa Barbara County residents who believe they may have Long Covid can now be seen at the UCLA Long Covid Clinic, according to Dr. Henning Ansorg, Santa Barbara County Health Officer.

The phone number of the UCLA clinic is: (310) 825-2631.

While Santa Barbara County does not have a Long Covid clinic, “UCLA has stepped up to the plate for us,” said Ansorg. “Your doctor can refer you, or they also take self-referred patients,” he said. This information can bring relief to many people who feel isolated by the disease because not all doctors are familiar with it. While doctors warn there is no known ‘silver bullet’ cure for Long Covid or similar diseases such as M.E., physicians and clinicians at UCLA have experienced success at lessening some of the symptoms.
