If necessary, people can take food supplements with probiotics , but these migratory organisms can also be consumed through food If we gave the green light to probiotics, then they are worth it. Their action is directed to the intestines: The introduction of microorganisms into the colon, which further suppress pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Dysbacteriosis and various diarrhea are treated: after radiation therapy, infections, allergies, viruses, inflammations, due to a change in habitat. Break down the acid salts of the bile ducts and reduce cholesterol . Synthesize folic acid , biotin , vitamin K and B, niacin. Stimulate the production of natural immune functions of the body.

Patient Experience with Dr. Sezan
Absolutely amazing doctor. Took the time to listen to my issues and answer my million questions. Followed up with me a few week after to see how I was. Really great, definitely recommend him
I had the most genuinely caring and professional experience with Dr. Sezan during my two week stay at Nassau Community Hospital (He is one of their in house physicians). He was very attentive to my medical needs. I wish he had an office on Long Island so that I can make him my primary physician (which I am seriously considering). At forty-seven, my health is very important to me and it was comforting to have some one care about my health just as much as I do. I Highly Recommend Dr. Sezan...
