Be cared for by an unequaled group of board-certified physicians and specialists.
When your health problems are complex, it can be difficult and frustrating to find answers. Your primary care physician may be treating your symptoms without understanding the root of your illness or pain. At the Kaplan Center, you will find a highly dedicated and skilled team of medical professionals working towards one common goal: returning you to optimal health and keeping you there. Our uniquely integrative, non-surgical treatment approach, combined with a functional medicine perspective, is highly successful in identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. For more than 30 years, we have delivered superior, cutting-edge health care in the Washington, DC area.
Dr. Gary Kaplan, our Medical Director and founder, is one of only 19 physicians in the country who is board-certified in both family medicine and pain medicine. Our multidisciplinary medical team includes board-certified physicians skilled in osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM), medical acupuncture, and detoxification protocols, as well as licensed physical therapists, a psychotherapist, a nutritionist, an acupuncturist, and a meditation counselor.
The first step in healing a patient is hearing a patient.
Our patients tell us that we are different from other medical groups they have visited. We offer patients our full and undivided attention with extended appointments and unrushed care. We take the time to listen to and understand a patient’s medical history so we can pinpoint the issues they are experiencing and understand the symptoms, the onset of the condition and the nature of the pain, illness, or concern to determine therapies that will work best.
We work as a highly coordinated, tightly integrated healthcare team. On a regular basis, your case is jointly reviewed by all of the Kaplan Center’s providers you see to ensure that your care is carefully coordinated. This approach allows for the full range of our team’s medical expertise to be accessed in diagnosing and discussing treatment options for most cases we see. The results are seen in more accurate diagnoses, individualized, comprehensive treatment plans, and continual monitoring to evaluate your progress.
A philosophy built on thinking beyond the prescription pad.
Resolving chronic conditions requires a multidimensional approach. By incorporating the best elements of both conventional and alternative medicine, our goal is always to address not only a patient’s physical symptoms but also to treat the root causes of an individual’s pain and illness, including problems of the mind and spirit that may be contributing to the disease process.
Depending upon your needs, your treatment plan may involve supplemental care such as physical therapy, psychotherapy, nutritional counseling or yoga, and meditation instruction. We will remain at the forefront of new and emerging treatment options, exploring every avenue and thinking beyond just prescription meds, in order to meet all your recovery goals.
