Dr. Ben Hogan opened his practice in 2001, specializing in family and sports medicine. Raised in Valdosta, Hogan played quarterback for the Valdosta Wildcats, which led to a football scholarship to play for the University of South Carolina. Hogan always had the desire to help people. His mother worked in the Valdosta school system and his father owned a pharmacy in the area for several years. The combination of family, church and sports helped influence his passion to one day call himself a doctor.
“What can I do to help people do things for themselves? How can I make people better?” That’s the question that Hogan still asks himself and aims everyday to incorporate into his practice. Ben Hogan M.D. practice prides itself on patient focused care, excellence and teamwork. Hogan and his staff are dedicated to building relationships with patients and according to their mission statement, providing them with comprehensive primary, preventative and sports medicine healthcare services regardless of age and skill.
There is a new service being offered at Hogan’s practice that is making headlines in the Valdosta area. The Emsulpt Neo is a wellness technology that is perfect for both men and women looking to lose body fat and tone muscle. What was once thought to be only for single women in their 20s, is now being used by both men and women of all ages. According to Hogan, findings show that this unique technology is being used by 60 percent of women and 90 percent of men.
“For the first time we have a machine that mixes muscle toning that works with a Tesla magnet and causes muscles to contract to the point where you can develop muscle,” said Hogan. “The program that we used (say for the abdominal muscle), simulates 22,000 crunches in 30 minutes.”
