Dr. Kaplan's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Kaplan "Being able to positively impact a patient's life is what drives me. When I see how much a surgery or other procedure improves someone's quality of life, it gives me a feeling of accomplishment—and happiness—to have made a meaningful difference." After beginning his academic training by earning a Bachelor of Science degree at George Washington University, Dr. Kaplan elected to do post-graduate work in genetics at the same school. He attended Emory University's School of Medicine—where he was awarded a Doctor of Medicine degree—and then started his post-doctoral training with an internship in General Surgery at Tulane University Affiliated Hospitals and Charity Hospital of Louisiana. Dr. Kaplan was a resident in General Surgery at Boston University Affiliated Hospital and a resident in Ophthalmology at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. He also completed a pre-residency fellowship in Glaucoma at Tufts New England Medical Center and a Clinical Fellowship in Vitreoretinal Diseases at the University of Illinois' Eye & Ear Infirmary. Dr. Kaplan is a Clinical Instructor in Ophthalmology at Georgetown University Medical School and a senior instructor at Washington Hospital Center. He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and licensed to practice in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
