Finally a good one!

Dr Kaplan is the most compassionate MD i know. As an RN myself, one rarely finds such a doctor so unaffected by his 'status,' and a true genuine man. He & his staff were so welcoming to me and made my visit really comfortable. He is confident in his clinical skills & expertise, and has a fantastic sense of humor that puts one at ease. I recommend Dr. Kaplan to all women who have never felt listened to, or genuinely cared for by a physician. Medicine is truly his passion and it shows in his calming bedside manner.

Five Stars

I have been seeing Dr Kaplan for over 10 years now. He delivered both of my boys, and discovered cervical cancer cells early and was able to treat and cure it before it ever got any further. Dr Kaplan has referred me to every other doctor I have used from pediatricians to therapists. I trust him completely. Every issue I have had, every concern has been addressed. I think the world of Dr Kaplan and would not change him as my doctor for the world. Any other doctor can change for me except Dr. Kap! If you are not yet seeing him I would fully recommend him. It is clear he has your best interest at heart!

Robotic Surgery

Dr. Kaplan worked with me to diagnose by problem, we tried the conservative route first...after no success he talked me through the option of having a robotic hysterectomy. All that he explained to me about the procedure was true... Dr. Kaplan has a great sense of humor and a wonderful bed side manner. I was released from the hospital the following morning, the incisions were very small and I was feeling much better after the first week. The hard part is remembering to take it easy after having a major surgery and feeling so good!

Robotic surgery

During my first appointment with Dr. Kaplan, he spent over an hour with me, going over items that 2 other gynecologists missed. How many doctors do that nowadays?! That appointment allowed me to make an informed decision to have a hysterectomy. Dr. Kaplan did my hysterectomy robotically. It was my first surgery. I was so impressed with the ease of recovery with minimal pain. I totally recommend the DaVinci robotic surgery.Afterwards, Dr. Kaplan was caring and compassionate with my aftercare. His office staff, including his wife, are also caring and professional with prompt follow-through. I'm so happy I looked further to find Dr. Kaplan. He's great!
