A new clinic at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is available to patients suffering from smell and taste loss as a result of COVID-19 and other illnesses.

UAB Medicine‘s clinic is projected to be the first one specialized for patients suffering from olfactory dysfunction in Alabama. The clinic will provide comprehensive and state-of-the-art care.

Post-infectious olfactory disorder has affected a significant number of people who have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Officials estimate that more than 60% of people who have contracted the virus are affected by this symptom, and current data shows 46% of these patients report extended smell loss.
