"The best doctor is also a philosopher"
My name is Dr. Arkady Kotlyar and I'm a Certified Acupuncture Practitioner (PhD, DiplAc). I practice medical acupuncture in my private clinic in Rishon LeZion, Israel, since 2008. Also, I have 10 years of experience as a medical acupuncture practitioner in various medical institutions in Israel, including the "Clalit" HMO, the Pain Clinic, and cardiac rehabilitation unit of Kaplan Medical Center, Israel.
I started to study medicine at the State School of Medicine of Kisinev, Moldova. My studies were interrupted due to immigration. I continued study at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Medical Faculty of the University of Tel Aviv. After graduating, I became a PhD in medical sciences. For 7 years I worked in medical laboratories and a blood bank in several Israeli medical centers. Also, I coordinated a physiological laboratory at the center for medical and functional diagnostics of the Israeli police. At the same time, I completed a post-doctorate, at the Department of Immunology of the Weizmann Research Institute.
In 2006, I returned to study medical acupuncture, which I started before starting my studies at the medical institute. I completed a Traditional Chinese Acupuncture training program for physicians at one of the colleges, and continued to study various types of medical acupuncture. Further training in the field of medical acupuncture I held at the Empress Elizabeth Hospital in Vienna, Austria and the Center for Complementary Medicine at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, Israel.
Modern medicine has undoubtedly reached heights in the invasive treatments. However, the vast majority of sufferers do not need surgery or dangerous drug treatments. Such treatments "improve" on the one hand, but at the same time just harm. After all, one of the most important principles of medicine is "first of all, do no harm." Medical acupuncture fulfills my dream of treating a wide variety of health problems without any harm to the patient. Acupuncture is an effective and harmless medicine.
