We review 127 encounters for polymerase chain reaction–confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection at a multidisciplinary outpatient clinic. We describe the symptomatology, time course, exam, and radiographic findings in this population. Patients with COVID-19 can experience persistent symptoms, primarily respiratory in nature, which can be severe enough to warrant hospitalization.
