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.

If your appointment is at 8:15 then it should not take almost 1/2 hour to be seen

Doctor Daniel Kaplan told my husband that my 2 year old daughter had a bruise, but in fact she had a fractured bone on her knee. On weekend we took her to PIH urgent care where they put a temporary cast on her leg, he decided to add additional cast to it... vs making a new/regular cast. They have left a sharp edge which damaged her skin, very big irritation. My daughter cried non stop since the appointment, could not sleep. Today we took her to UCLA pediatrician who said that this is not how you should treat kids, she even called Dr Kaplan to ask why he did what he did.... This is terribly unprofessional and I need to hear an explanation why something like that happened to my daughter. I'm considering seeking legal advice on this matter. If we followed Dr Kaplan's directions, her knee would not heal properly and she would have been in constant pain. He said she needed to wear whatever he put on her for 2 weeks, but today we were told that it would take up to 6 weeks to heal. They had to cut a whole in the cast for us to treat the irritation caused by the cast which your doctors/nurses put on her!!!! This is so unprofessional and careless. Dr kaplan confirmed to our doctor that he was not trained in how to treat kids fractures and according to our doctor the way they treated my daughter is not the way you supposed to treat kids, but only adults. I am very upset about this situation. It was very stressful and painful couple of days for us. I need an explanation why something like that could happen!

He's an amazing doctor. Spent a lot of time with me, explained everything in detail. And we even went above and beyond to try to schedule a neurology appointment with me, but all the doctors were out. I very much appreciated him.
