Hand in hand with his formal training and grounding in conventional Western medicine, Dr. Kogan has actively pursued a number of other healing arts and practices that have shaped his understanding of and approach to patient care. He is a graduate of a two-year training course in craniosacral therapy, a subtle osteopathic modality that has wide range of effectiveness for different conditions such as headaches, back pain, fatigue, and many others. He has also completed a four year program at the Suluk Academy, a teaching center based on the principles and traditions of Sufism. He learned how to incorporate meditation, mindfulness, and different spiritual practices into his daily life and his work with patients. He has also taken courses in nutrition, therapeutic use of vitamins, functional medicine, botanicals, and other alternative modalities.
Weaving those tools into the fabric of his medical practice has enabled Dr. Kogan to provide innovative and effective treatments to his patients with minimal use of invasive procedures or heavy reliance on medications. He understands the importance of self-exploration, awareness, and beneficial lifestyle changes as essential stepping stones towards better health.
His commitment to the importance of integrating different healing modalities with modern-day Western medicine has led him to become a founding board member of the American Board of Integrative Medicine and advisor to number of integrative and holistic medicine associations and companies. In 2012 Dr Kogan has founded AIM Health Institute, the first 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area that provides integrative medicine services to low-income and terminally ill patients regardless of ability to pay.
