Testimonials & Reviews
If you are looking for a caring intelligent doctor you’re coming to the right place. Dr Koganski and staff never make you feel unimportant! Answers questions even after asking them several times and with a smile. His whole staff is like that.
I came to Dr. Koganski completely beaten down by fatigue, unable to get out of bed for days or months at a time and suffering from a loss of trust in my doctors. I literally dragged myself through life, never knowing when my energy would fail me and was unable to make plans for fear I’d have to cancel them and let a friend or a loved in down. I have cardiomyopathy, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and had physical and emotional pain. My sleep was unpredictable, and I was a moody mess. I ate what I thought was an excellent diet, mostly organic and grass fed, knew a great deal about nutrition, but I was sick and getting sicker.
First, Dr. K did a detailed evaluation with testing. He spent more time with me than any doctor ever had. He was kind and informative. Then he cured a long standing, underlying gut infection and stomach pain. I worked with him and his staff to determine the best foods for me to eat (via an elimination diet which identified an intolerance to nightshades and some other foods) and also worked with his staff on mind-body connections and relaxation. All of that work significantly reduced my inflammatory pain. Over two years we healed my gut and liver (NAFLD).
Dr. Koganski tested me to know exactly what nutrients my body needs. That testing was extensive and very informative. The cost was out of pocket and not expensive. After 20 years of going to my former doctors, I was actually feeling better! (Thyroid patients can empathize I am sure!) Healing takes effort. Nutrient, sleep and energy deprivation had put me in a vicious cycle of poor sleep followed the next day by sugar cravings, mood swings, and over eating. Change and healing meant I had to be honest myself and Dr. Koganski, which was hard to do, but because he was kind and trustworthy I was able to admit I had a problem and do the things he told me to do: work at good nutrition and lifestyle. I am generally pain free and my cholesterol, blood sugar, and triglycerides are in normal ranges. I bike, walk, attend fitness and mind-body classes, and I’m pretty happy. I have the pleasure now of trying new things that I would not have before because my life was too often put on hold by illness. If I have a setback or get sick Dr. Koganski quickly responds and helps me. He and his staff are kind, thorough, patient and truly care. The concierge program and extra expense for functional medicine has given me a better quality of life than I had before. It is 100% worth it! I will always have Cardiomyopathy and Hashimoto’s, but unlike before, they and inflammation do not define my life.
Dr. Koganski is pretty good BUT majority of office staff is very poor. They are rude, make many mistakes in all aspects of their jobs but do not admit it. The only two good ones are his “health coach” and “Nutritionist.” Having said that his nutritionist could explain things better and in more depth. She is very nice though.
I highly recommend Marika Hartman! Every time i go to her with my problems – she gives me a right diagnosis (always confirmed by specialists!) plus she gives me the best care and attention during the visit! i just love her – the best doctor i have seen in years!
Originally referred by gym friend: “He saves my life.” Strong staff now working with holistic approach to staying healthy.
I have been going to Dr.Val Koganski at Newtown Internal Medicine for almost 2 yrs. He has been very instrumental in my healing process and it has made made a big difference in my life. His office also has a Health Coach and Nutritionist on staff. They are a complete package! I highly recommend going there.
Dr. Koganski is a unique practitioner in my experience with his high standards in patient care, his intelligence, his use of all tools at his disposal, and his willingness to listen. He has genuine compassion for his patients. I consider myself fortunate to have him as my primary care physician. I trust him fully with my care
In 2000 I was diagnosed with dermatomyositis (DM). I was treated by rheumatologist in Jefferson Hospital for seven years with no relief but with serious side effects. After I met with Dr. Koganski he realized that conventional medications will not work and he started to treat me with homeopathic and holistic medicine. Now I am in remission for almost eight years. Thank Dr. Koganski for his exceptional knowledge, kindness and being a great doctor who really cares.
“While I have always been satisfied with Dr. Koganski and his staff before I joined the concierge program, as I get older, the program gives me an added layer of confidence and comfort level. I also feel that the executive level physical has identified some issues that may not have been found otherwise. It gives me the opportunity to prevent issues rather than ‘deal with them’.”
I had ankle surgery and was a complete disaster. I had nerve damage,diagnosis of RSD, IC, neck and back pain and I could go on. But with Dr. Koganski’s care, kindness, and his knowledge of accupunture he has helped me attain ultimate health. My RSD did not spread through my body and I would say that I am 98 percent cured. Without Dr. koganski I wouldn’t be where I am today. Feeling great. I still have a way to go but with his guidance and compassion I have no doubt I will be the best that I can be health wise. Not all accupunturist are the same and he is truly the best.
I moved to Florida 10 years ago and I travel back at least twice a year to see him. I would never consider going to someone else. For me, I feel like I have always received concierge treatment
very professional. Everything is modern. Hands on with patient and takes their time
5/5 Have been with Dr. Koganski for years and still want him to be my doctor even after having moved away from the area close to his office.
5/5 He is a excellent physician. As an RN I am pretty fussy about choosing a good Doctor. He is a good diagnostician. caring. He does not rush through my appointment, I highly recomend him.
Great Physician. 5/5 Dr. Koganski is the BEST doctor I have ever had as my primary physician. He is accurate in his diagnosis, takes time to explain things and does not over mediate.
The best as far as I’m concerned. 5/5 I would like to say how special and I lucky I feel every time I set foot in your office. I drive about an hour each way, and I want you to know that if it were two hours I would still do it. I appreciate the fact that you always take the time to answer all my questions. Your concern for my healthy well-being is truly remarkable … http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Valeri_Koganski/reviews#ixzz4TsQ6ofEP
A Trustworthy Physician. 4/5 Dr. Koganski is an excellent physician, and with Dr. Proudin, have been my primary care doctors for almost 2 decades. He spends time discussing the reasons for my visit, as well as how I am in general. I trust his medical judgments overall, which tend toward being precautionary vs. reactive. His office personnel are pleasant and professional, and the office is well run I would like to see more responsiveness to on-line requests, and there were occasional mix ups with lab referrals in the past. Would strongly recommend him to friends and family.
Being able to see my doctor when I need to see him is worth the cost of this program. He spends quality time with me and I get a secure feeling that he sincerely cares about my health and well-being.
Very thorough. 5/5 Excellent Doctor. Has a polite, accommodating staff.
