National Jewish Health Patient– December, 2020 I am a patient with post acute covid 19 syndrome. It is a new condition that everyone is still learning about. I felt like Dr. Goldstein was not interested in listening and learning from my experience but just wanted to put me in a box with everyone else and get me out of there.
