8 Facts About Patient Satisfaction Surveys

Patient satisfaction surveys provide a standardized way of reporting about healthcare experiences. But there can be more than meets the eye when reviewing scores. Here's what you should know

DR. KAPLAN RESPONDS - (Dr. Kaplan, edit your response)

I would like to thank my patients for providing feed back that will be shared with others. As a professional I am always eager to learn and take all feed back as a valuable educational tool. I am presently working at two locations:

1.DENT neurological institute where I see patients under insurance for chronic spine, joint and nerve problems. One of my specialties  is treatment of headaches and chronic muscle spasms of neck and limbs with Botox. This is a valuable, conservative and effective tool that is frequently required before implementation of exercise. Most of the time by the time patients see me for an initial consultation they have already tried many other treatments and exercise based treatments and not benefited from them. I use an EMG evaluation of cervical muscles to be certain that the muscles are in an actual spasm and therefore would benefit from the Botox therapy. 

2. Osteopathic Wellness Medicine of Western New York, where concierge services include Prolotherapy and PRP

I was diagnosed with 4 cervical herniations and 5 thoracic herniations. Dr Kaplan changed my diagnoses to facet joint syndrome or something. He prescribed injections. He scraped my joint to the point I could hear it scrape like 20 times. Since that injection I have had jaw pain. My neck and midback are in chronic pain and I refuse all narcotics and most pain meds. Pain is an indicator that something is wrong. I do not want to mute the impulses of my nervous system.

I went to Dr Kaplan on the recommendation of a fellow yogini for help with my neck. I was looking for a doctor familiar with therapeutic yoga, who could understand where I was coming from. I had been in a violent car crash years ago with no follow up, and starting to suspect that my migraine like headaches were triggered by intense spasms in my neck. Dr Kaplan, instead of ordering effective diagnostic tests, performed an EMG on me and tried to sell me Botox in the same visit! Wrong approach!!!
