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!

staff was friendly and attentive. Dr. Kaplan was very personable and straight forward. Did not recommend surgerrgery right aight away and explained why. But also left it on the table for a possibility if PT does not work.

Dr. Kaplan listens and understands your problem that you're having. He makes recommendations and his medical staff is wonderful. Basically what I'm saying is he knows how to put you back together.

I believe I was not seen by Dr. Kaplan and “Dr” did not introduce himself. He did not look at my fractured ankle from a 6 week old injury and discharged me, which is fine with me. Therefore I assume I did not need to complete my physical therapy

Dr Kaplan and his staff were professional, kind, punctual and thorough. The experience was entirely positive. Except perhaps for the cortisone shot which hurt like hell. :))) however my pain has subsided considerably and I’m so pleased Dr Kaplan gave it to me.

I would tell them about the interminable wait time to see the doctor and suggest that because of this they might want to look for another provider.
