Kaplan Medical Clinic
Living with fibromyalgia and chronic pain can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Perhaps the most difficult aspect of dealing with your chronic illness is finding a trustworthy physician who understands the complexities of fibromyalgia, allows you to take the time you need to explain your current pain and health history, and works with you to create a multi-dimensional treatment plan that addresses your unique set of symptoms.
For 24 years the Kaplan Medical Center’s interdisciplinary team has offered comprehensive solutions to patients struggling with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Many of these patients, before working with our team, had already seen five or more specialists; about 70 percent of our patients come to us with inaccurate or incomplete diagnoses. Some have undergone unnecessary surgeries or have had trouble with their prescribed pain and sleep medications. Consequently, over time, a number of these patients also had developed nutritional deficiencies, sleep disturbances, hormonal imbalances, muscular pain and dysfunction apart from fibromyalgia. These problems only increased patients’ pain and disability and further compromised their ability to heal.
These are setbacks that you cannot afford. To make the most rapid and complete recovery from fibromyalgia, you need:
- A comprehensive strategy for regaining your health;
- An experienced physician who takes the time to understand the full extent of your medical issues, delivers excellent care, and closely coordinates with
- Your extended healthcare team to ensure that you receive integrated, high quality care.

By utilizing the truly integrated medical approach described in the Consumer Guide, the Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine helps patients to more effectively manage, and sometimes to fully resolve, their pain and fatigue. Dr. Gary Kaplan recently created the Consumer Guide as a way of helping patients who, because of geography or finances, cannot be treated at our Center for Integrative Medicine in Arlington, Virginia. In addition, we also have initiated two health programs for patients who may live outside of the Washington, DC metropolitan area, but are interested in talking directly to Dr. Kaplan about their medical concerns. Details about both programs can be explored on our website.
Please remember that your recovery will be greatly enhanced by you having the courage and the patience to find a doctor who can meet your unique healthcare needs. We hope our complimentary Consumer Guide is one step toward this goal.
