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.

I appreciate the timely accommodations the front desk staff made in order to confirm whether I would be able to see an Orthopedics doctor. I appreciate being able to see a doctor immediately after the prognosis with the neighboring PIH Urgent Care facility upon the concerning X-ray. I believe and think having a second opinion from another Orthopedic doctor on my medical concern would be more assuring.

Yes, Dr. Kaplan took the time to show a replica of the area that was affected and he explained it thoroughly to me. I was very satisfied with his explanation as to us leaving it alone for now, and I would definitely come back with him again, very satisfied. Thank you.
