Coronavirus COVID-19 Doctor in New Orleans
Dr. Reena Mehta is a board-certified immunologist in New Orleans, LA that can help you navigate coronavirus COVID-19 and your allergy or asthma concerns.
Dr. Mehta is continuing to provide telemedicine visits to answer your questions about COVID-19 and help you through any related health concerns. If you have a fever and lower respiratory symptoms (cough, chest congestion, or shortness of breath), Dr. Mehta can provide rapid screening for you in a brief telemedicine visit, and help you determine if you should be tested for coronavirus.
Signs & Symptoms of COVID-19
Most individuals who get infected with COVID-19 will have fever (temperature greater than 100 F) and mild upper-respiratory symptoms including mild cough and nasal congestion. Individuals with mild symptoms should self-quarantine at home. Lower respiratory symptoms, such as cough, chest congestion, or shortness of breath can indicate a worsening of disease. If you are experiencing such symptoms, Dr. Mehta can provide rapid screening for you in a brief telemedicine visit, and help you determine if you should be tested for coronavirus.
