I went here for a few years and this place has the most poorly managed office I've ever been to. HORRIBLE COMMUNICATION Their sloppy, uncaring, uninformed staff led to inexcusable costs. I ended up paying out my dollars for their ignorance. When I made my appointment I told them I had HIP insurance and they booked me for Dr Chang. When I showed up they said Dr Chang was not there and they had reassigned my appt to Dr Kaplan. I thought fine. Later, it turns out I was billed ($235.00). I called HIP to clear this and found out Dr Kaplan had quit HIP insurance 3 mos earlier and would not be covered. NO ONE AT THE OFFICE EVER MENTIONED IT!! I fought this injustice for 18 mos, trying to explain to the DR, his office, HIP, and the Dr's billing office. It took hours upon hours on the phone, I filed several disputes & letters, etc. After 18 mos, I thought I had finally won, but the dispute process and paperwork can be tricky. Turns out I didn't winit's been at a collection agency for 5 years (screwing up my credit all this time). The office made the error, will not admit or help and so the patient must pay (again). It's awful. The office made the error, and the office works for Dr Kaplan, if I can't trust the ethics and work of his office, how can I ever trust him. I will never ever go back.
I did not have a good experience with Dr Kaplans office staff. They are not efficient and rude and give a lot of attitude.Dr Kaplan also asked his nurse to call me after I found out I was going to have a miscarriage to tell me that he could not do a D&C (after he had told me in person he did perform D&Cs). Not only was that impersonal and cold, but the nurse confused the situation. He poorly handled a sensitive and emotional issue.
I wouldn't want anyone else delivering my children. Dr Kaplan is very compassionate, knowledgable and always available to address questions or concerns. The front office staff is helpful and polite. I have seen this doctor for both successful and unsuccessful pregnancies and he has been caring and competent in both situations.
Dr. Kaplan has been my OB/GYN for almost 4 years now. He delivered my two children and both times he was absolutely wonderful. He always answers your questions, he is available to you when you need him, he is a very caring, friendly and knowledgeable doctor. He's not the type to chat with you for hours, but if you have any questions he's more than happy to discuss and never makes you feel stupid for asking.I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
