Dr. Svetlana Kogan enjoys the challenge of treating patients who suffer from panic attacks and helping them win.

A panic attack is one of those universal horrors most of us have experienced at some time in our lives. Dr. Kogan's first choice in treating her patients who suffer from panic attacks is with hypnosis. She has a few other favorite methods that do not involve using prescription medications, because of their possible unpleasant side effects.

Dr. Kogan:

Panic attacks are one of my favorite diseases to treat. It’s a misnomer of course, a favorite disease to treat, but it’s one of the most challenging things, I should say, to treat. Why? Because most people who have experienced panic attacks at one point or another are awaiting some sort of a quick fix from a provider, you know, which can come in the form of a prescription medication.

Unfortunately, these prescription medications have a lot of side effects. So, people who come to my practice are often seeking an alternative to prescription medications and the number one treatment that I recommend is hypnosis. Number two treatment, probably relaxation techniques and yoga. Number three-- acupuncture and electromagnetic pulsation waves together.
