She is extremely accommodating when it comes to scheduling appointments, and really works with you and your schedule to the best of her availability. She has a great approach to coming up with a plan of care that you are comfortable with and always follows through. I HIGHLY recommend her!

She's rude and disrespectful, not the type of person with whom who would want to trust your medical care. She doesn't listen, keeps interrupting and refuses to answer questions. She has no understanding or interest in interacting with patients in a respectful way.

Dr. Kaplan is fabulous!!! I can't say enough great things about her. She really cares and will go out of her way to provide the best treatment for YOU. Dr. Kaplan is the only person I will allow to give me an endoscopy or clonoscopy because of her supreme gentleness and thoroughness. I had both done together and it was pleasant and easy. Recently, I had issues with a hiatal hernia and other bowel issues. Dr. Kaplan saw me right away and came up with a simple non-invasive plan that worked.

I've been seeing Dr. Kaplan for 6 years, maybe more, now for a chronic GI issue. Shes been able to get me 95% under control which is amazing. She takes her time with you and explains everything. Shes incredibly nice, has a good sense of humor and really knows her stuff. The office will get you in for a last minute appt if you're experiencing issues.
