Sinus Conditions and COVID-19
Satish Govindaraj, MD, discusses the full spectrum of sinus conditions, and how to distinguish them from COVID-19. He describes the symptoms of COVID-19 and how they differ from seasonal allergies, colds, and flu. He advises patients how and when to seek care, and helps patients understand what to expect from telemedicine.
