    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Long time patient 2+ with the Dr Kaplan. He is a great guy however he is showing signs of burnout with Lakeside. It take 2 months (no joke) to see him and unless its literally life or death, his assistant Tabitha is rude and snarky, and he is very quick to refer out for almost everything. Bottom line go elsewhere.

This experience still haunts me.

Not only did the doctor always want to look at my 'hearts' (and yes, he actually said that!) whenever I came in for whatever reason, he misdiagnosed my hypothyroidism even though the LAB TECH CIRCLED MY ELEVATED TSH on my last. Basically he told me the gaining 65 lbs, the lethargy, the hair loss, poor memory, exhaustion and dry skin were because I was depressed. He gave me prozac and sent me home to cry in my bed. Luckily a friend referred me to another doc who looked at my symptoms and labs and got me on the correct protocol. This guy even had the nerve to call me after I requested my records be transferred and ask why. He's an idiot at best and dangerous at worst.

He is a good Doc.

My experience has always been good with Dr. Kaplan. He is a willing listener and has always tried to help me. Most importantly, he spends a lot of time with me. He genuinely has concern for his patients. I give four stars to my Dr. Kaplan.
