Dr. Kaplan became a practicing physician specializing in orthopedics for a simple reason: to help his patients stay healthy and active. He observes that “orthopedics can dramatically help patients improve their lives” and adds that helping people reach their goals gives him the greatest satisfaction.

Dr. Kaplan taught orthopedics in Tanzania as a member of Health Volunteers Overseas, an international organization that increases healthcare access through clinical training and education in developing countries. In his spare time, he can be found mountain biking or skiing. Patients may not know that Dr. Kaplan won his sixth-grade spelling bee!

great doctor!

Dr. Kaplan was excellent. He was very kind and concerned, explained things very clearly, and gave ample time to answer my many questions. Even though there was a long wait to see him, I very much appreciated his willingness to see me as soon as I left the ER following my bicycle accident and broken bones.

I was called prior to my appt. time, and it was explained that if I wanted to see Dr. Kaplan that there may be a delay due to to unforeseen excessive workload, and if I was OK to see the PA. I said no problem and arrived 15 min. prior to my appt. I saw Mr. Lonnie Chatman P.A. He was outstanding ! He reviewed my case and confirmed my conservation with Dr. Kaplan from my December visit. Lonnie Chatman P.A. is a knowegable professional, I felt completely confident in his care ! He is outstanding ! With my existing condition, I have no issues seeing him in the future if needed. Thank you.
