Dr. Kaplan performed a spinal fusion on me in 2014 and I was virtually pain free for the first time in 40 years when I woke from the operation and have continued to be pain free to today. I have recommended him many times since my operation and all have successful outcomes as well.

He restored my ability to walk upright without severe sciatic pain. I went back to a normal life including golf and swimming. It was 14 years ago. He did spine repair on my late wife 20 years ago that was 100% successful. He was very thorough and informative and pleasant to talk to.

Dr. Kaplan is very personable And I think he is a very capable surgeon. I am still in the recovery stage and in quite a bit of pain. I see him , or the Dr who is replacing him, this Thursday. I hope they have some advice about the pain and how to control it. Would definitely recommend Dr Kaplan

Used Dr Kaplan about 4 years ago after seeing seeing a number of other health care providers. MRI's revealed considerable lower spine damage & surgery was the only recommended option. The whole process, from my initial contact with his office, thru surgery & follow-up was excellent. I'd recommend Dr Kaplan to anyone who is experiencing back pain to get his recommendations to resolve the patient's issues.

I have been sick for over 2 years, unable to do anything and can’t drive. I have seen over 10 Neurologist, all of them were rude and talked down to me. They have no clue what’s wrong with me and just wanted to put me on Meds.. All 8 of the Meds gave me side effects and didn’t help me. Dr.kaplan was so nice from the moment he walked in the room. He is very caring & said he was sorry he couldn’t help me, but he did tell me what to have done and who & where I need to go get help.

I am 84 years old, and unfortunately have visited, I'd estimate, hundreds of doctor's offices. Dr. Kaplan's staff and nurses were way above good. Everything ran so smoothly; their friendliness and efficiency was something to behold. My back operation went exactly Dr. Kaplan had told me it would, that surgery was five weeks ago, and I am doing great. I had heard of so many back surgeries that didn't go as planned, that I was more than a little apprehensive. I now say, why did I wait so long?

Dr. Kaplan is an outstanding Neurosurgeon. He was very patient with all my questions prior to my back surgery and his post-op care has been great. He is supported by an outstanding staff. Ashley, Julie, Jackie just to name a few. Everyone is very helpful and supportive and always promptly returns calls. You cannot get better Neurosurgery care anywhere. I wish there was a 10 Star rating!

Dr. Kaplan was recommended to me by two former patients who had undergone surgery and were very happy with the outcome. My Medicare supplement agent also spoke highly of the Doctor. My exams have been thorough and professional. I appreciate his conservative approach, trying alternative treatment before we consider surgery.
