in Indianapolis, IN |
My family has a history of dupuytren's contracture. I have had injections with Dr. Kaplan and recently surgery for this genetic disease. He is OUTSTANDING in his field and I recommend him without hesitation to any person suffering from this condition. Any surgery involving fingers is risky because of nerves, tendons, etc. I have had cousins who have had botched surgery experiences with disasterous results. He is an expert and totally dedicated to his patients.

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.
