When John first came to see Dr Kogan at GW Center for Integrative Medicine, he had prolonged diarrhea caused by Candida infection. With a few herbs and right diet he got quickly better. Since then, Dr Kogan has been the primary care provider.
Unfortunately, John had struggled with depression for most of his life and in the last several years had to have multiple hospital admissions to manage medications. Medications have worked well but left him with lots of side effects that he prefers to manage using natural methods and, more importantly, to engage in group community resources such as Tai Chi, Meditation, and others. Even being on Medicaid, inexpensive classes are still not easy to afford on an ongoing basis.
