Dr. Gary Kaplan, a clinical associate professor at Georgetown University School of Medicine, founder and medical director of the Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine and author of Why You Are Still Sick: How Infections Can Break Your Immune System and How You Can Recover. A pioneer and leader in the field of integrative medicine, Dr. Kaplan is one of only 19 physicians in the country to be board-certified in both Family Medicine and Pain Medicine.
In 1985, Dr. Kaplan created the Kaplan Medical Center to offer patients suffering from chronic pain and illness a more effective model of medical care. The Center's physicians, nurses, psychotherapists, dietitians and physical therapists collaborate closely on patient's progress to ensure the best outcome for each patient. This coordinated, multidisciplinary approach had proved to be highly effective for patients suffering from complex and long-standing medical problems.
In November 2023, Dr. Kaplan will co-chair an international conference on New Developments in Understanding Chronic Illness: The Role of the Immune Dysfunction and Infections. This is the third conference on this topic he has chaired and last year's program was attended by over 900 physicians, researchers, and the public. Why is this important? Because this is a major change in how physicians think about chronic illness and will offer solutions to millions of people suffering from long Covid, chronic fatigue syndrome, post-treatment Lyme syndrome, PANS/PANDAS, fibromyalgia, and depression.
