Dr. Kaplan is another acquisition of the aggressive Methodist acquisition team that targets others doctors in the medical field tha have lucrative practices, in order to gain a monopoly in the Medical Center, leaving smaller physicians to fall by the wayside. I would definitely not recommend Dr. Kaplan to anyone. Methodist Hospital caters to the RICH &FAMOUS likes the BUSHES, KINGS & QUEENS and the hell with everyone else. I STRONGLY ADVISE GOING TO ST. LUKES....THEY CARE!!!

Dr. Kaplan is an amazing doctor. I have been twice to see him, in both cases due to unusual concerns with my stomach. While my issues were not grave, he listened intently and affirmed his understanding. After careful thought and exam, he provided an opinion that ended up being exactly correct. He conservatively offers solutions that make sense, while extending the feeling that he's a great friend. Finally, I've never had a doctor call me personally to go over routine results, except Dr. Kaplan.

Imagine receiving a $2460 bill from a pathology lab following a Kaplan colonoscopy. This occurred Feb 2016. Polyps removed during the procedure were sent to a lab "out of network". His office told me it would be taken care of. It wasn't. It took several tries to have Dr Kaplan call me. He was unaware of the situation and assured me the matter would be taken care of. It was not. 10 months later I do hope the matter is resolved. No thanks to my ex Dr or his staff.

His support staff is inefficient and borderline rude.
