Lake Zurich, IL |
As a new patient I had two appointments. Visual field and photos were repeated. I was concerned about insurance coverage. (?) My eyes were dialated (his breath reeked of garlic) for 20 minutes an excruciating painful exam, bright light into sensitive eyes. from previous cataract surgery. He was annoyed. Said it painful for him too. More bright light while layed back in the chair pressing a metal tool into soft tissue in my eye socket. Eyes were swollen, red for hours. No, never again!

He keeps my elderly mother waiting 3-4 hours every time she goes here !! She has to bring food with her as she can't go that long wait. NO dr is worth that Do not go here

I have been a patient of Dr. Kaplan for over a decade. I am glaucoma suspect. He is friendly, professional, thorough, and down to earth. I have recommended others to his practice who agree with me. Because exams are thorough, expect to spend time during your visit. Because he was recognized as one of the top doctors in his field by his peers, expect to have to wait for an appointment.
