We offer 2 types of physicals. We are one of only a few offices in New York that introduced the integrative physical for either preventive or sick visit purposes. Integrative physicals combine Eastern and Western medical protocols. Research shows that Mind and Body are connected. That is why we feel that addressing both is the most complete was to assess health or disease. But how are these Physicals different? Dr.Kogan uses a unique proprietary protocol in the Integrative Mind-Body checkup, and it always depends on the person’s health concerns, body type, and lifestyle. Integrative Medicine, practiced by Dr.Kogan is a truly complete approach to treatment of disease or wellness maintenance, because it fuses eastern (spirit/energy) and western (body) medicine. This field is only starting to evolve. One of the founding fathers of Integrative Medicine is Dr. Deepak Chopra.
Many patients ask us: if integrative medicine is so great, does that mean that Western medicine is inadequate? And the answer is ‘No’. With Dr.Kogan’s 20 years of clinical experience with both Eastern and Western medicine, each one has its own merit, but neither one is complete without the other. Western medicine is not complete without eastern medicine and vice versa. Our medical schools have just started to introduce the concepts of Integrative Medicine to their students, but this education process is still in its beginning stages. This is why insurances largely ignore the value of eastern medicine, and say that it is not evidence-based, not ‘real’ medicine.
