He's my favorite doctor!

Dr. Kaplan is an amazing doctor. He removed seven fibroid tumors about eight years ago from me. He always shows concern for his patients. He's my favorite doctor at Kaiser. I wouldn't have it no other way.

Great experience with Dr. Kaplan

Dr. Kaplan was great to me throughout my entire pregnancy. He spent time answering all my questions and always put me at ease. I'm surprised by the previous negative review as this was not like my experience at all. I know the doctors are very busy there, so with that you'll always get someone who is unhappy. Just like the best restaurant in town, there will always be one unhappy customer who writes that scathing review! Overall, my entire pregnancy, labor and delivery at Kaiser was great and I would recommend Dr. Kaplan and his team!

Wonderful doctor!

First off, I feel I must point out that the person who wrote the review dated 6/26/12 is talking about an entirely different Dr. Kaplan, one who is based in NY. The correct Dr. Kaplan being reviewed here practices in Los Angeles. He delivered my first two children, in 2000 and 2003, while his practice was in New Jersey. After delivering my second daughter, he told me she would be his last delivery in New Jersey, as he and his family were moving to California. I literally cried. He was wonderful, warm, caring, knowledgable and there for me every step of the way. I had difficult pregnancies with preterm labor and pre-eclampsia. He was available to me anytime I called, day or night, and with a smile. I cannot say enough about how wonderful Dr. Kaplan is! I highly, highly recommend!

HORRIBLE ABUSIVE DR!

It's funny that this post has been hidden..... I would like to repost b/c woman who are pregnant should NOT use this Dr. for the safety of your unborn child! please read my review and experience with Dr. Kaplan below... i had to put a star b/c it won't let me put -5 stars! dr. kaplan is a rude, cocky pompous, unprofessional and yes abusive dr!!!!! dr kaplan was recommended to me by friends that i had trusted when i was pregnant... he was quick to want to give me a c-section... why is that, b/c he is a business man.... and businessman are in business to make money! after my 5th month of pregnancy i started having some terrible symptoms such as not feeling the baby move as regularly and some terrible terrible swelling all over my body especially my feet and ankles. when i called his office about not feeling the baby move... he would not even get on the phone with me! I did not even speak to a nurse but the receptionist...! after several calls... the receptionist told me i was fine. I went to see dr kaplan at my next appointment and he told me.... "if you don't feel the baby move... the baby is dead!" speaking to a pregnant woman like that especially a first time pregnant woman was horrifying!!!! he did not do a sonogram after i asked... he pushed me out the door and said your having a very healthy normal pregnancy!!!! then i asked him what was gong on with my bad swelling...he said to me " you should just feel lucky that you are not pregnant in the summer, then you'd see swelling and really have something to complain about!... oh please your fine" at 35 weeks i went to his office to have a culture done... he never once measured my stomach and would sometimes skip weighing me.... (i gained 65 pounds!!!! i only weighed 120 pounds prior to being pregnant... another sign... possibly something could have been wrong?) my stomach was always sensitive and i would squirm a little when he touched it and he replied to me.... "what!!!??? is your vagina too sensitive to? can i even put this little swab in your vagina?" yup!.... that was what he said to me... in his condescending tone! my mouth hit the floor and could not even speak! he asked me how i was feeling at 35 weeks and i could not even tell him the truth that i was in such pain due to my swelling areas and the lack of baby movement b/c he was just going to shut me down again and make me feel like i was crazy... anyway so at that 35 week appointment he looked and felt my stomach for a quick few seconds and said " i think the baby has a growth problem, i am sending you for a sonogram... no rush... i am sure all is ok".i make an appointment to get a sonogram at dr Roshans office (who is amazing by the way!) and the next thing you know i am rushed to the hospital to have my baby immediately!!!!!! the baby was under major stress due to a condition called Placental insufficiency. my baby was born 5 weeks early at a little over 3 pounds. my amniotic fluid was low and the umbilical cord was under stress as well! i was sick to my stomach when dr. kaplan had to deliver my baby. I did not want him anywhere near me or my baby let alone touch my new born baby!!! my baby was in the NICU for 2 weeks... the next day dr, kaplan the came down to the NICU as i sat by my premature babies side distraught not knowing what was going to happen to my baby and said "thank god i sent you to get that sonogram... if you waited a another day he would have been dead!" i was mortified by again his use of words and that he was actually going to take credit for what had taken place... needless to say.. i have not heard from him since... he never called to follow up to see how the baby was nor did he call to see how i was.This man should not be bringing children into the world when he doesn't even like people! how this man still practices medicine and has a license is beyond me!!!!! I HIGHLY ADVISE YOU NEVER USE THIS DR!!!!!!
