in Brazil in. |
Wonderful surgeon did a great job had no pain would highly recommend him
in Lebanon, IN |
I got in relatively quickly with Dr Kaplan. I was very impressed with him. Very easy going and gave great information on diagnosis and treatment plan. I was injected on first vist and scheduled follow up. I was given call instructions and exercises to do between visits. My problem is, I called his CMA, Jesse three weeks in a row, with no follow up call. I am a triage nurse and this is inexcusable. Thus, unless you can be treated in one visit, I would not recommend Dr Kaplan.
