New ME/CFS and Long Covid MD in Massachusetts


Senior Member
New Doctor in Town (Massachusetts): Dr. Joshua Clauch, a dual specialist in neurology and psychiatry, has started seeing patients living with ME/CFS and Long COVID at the Multiple Sclerosis Center at UMass Memorial Hospital, Worcester, Massachusetts, as part of a Friday morning weekly clinic for this patient population. They take Medicare (and MassHealth, if you live in Massachusetts). If you'd like an appt with Dr. Clauch, call the Multiple Sclerosis Center (508-793-6555) and ask for an appt specifically with him. Tell them if you can only do a video/virtual appt, and hopefully they can accommodate.
So far 3 long-time ME patients have seen him and like him. I am working with him (not as a patient, but as an advocate).
