Dr. Kaplan is an amazing glaucoma specialist. All my life I've been told I've had dangerously high pressures in both my eyes and that I was doomed to develop glaucoma and at only 35 you can imagine how very scary that can be to hear. Dr. Kaplan examined me and put me at ease and took her time to explain everything so I could understand it. She really is the best and I recommend her to everyone. She is on top of routinely testing her patients which is great! The staff is beyond amazing as well.

Recently, a test that Dr. Kaplan routinely runs to check my eyes revealed a change in a condition that she had discussed with me previously. Based on a potential for a sudden medical emergency with a risk of permanent vision loss, we scheduled an Iridotomy for the following week. The procedure was quick, painless and completely effective. It confirmed my continued confidence in Dr. Kaplan's expertise and experience. She also has a wonderful office staff and a patient-friendly environment.
Dr. Kaplan is a Glaucoma specialist and has been caring for my eyes, keeping the pressure well-controlled for the past ten years. I have felt completely comfortable asking questions and discussing my eye care, never feeling rushed. Her office staff is friendly and competent in what they do and care about each and every patient not just as patients but as people. Dr. Kaplan runs an exceptional practice. She has expertly managed my eye health and she has an office staff that is second to none.

I have been Dr. Kaplan's grateful patient since 2005, a wonderful experience. She inspires total confidence because of her expertise and experience, and -- even better -- her willingness to answer any question, to explain any procedure. She takes her time; she focuses her attention entirely on the patient in the most humane kind way. I've been through various procedures and have always left her office with my eyesight improved, my happiness increased. Superb staff, too: Cheryl, Ilyssa, Olga.

Very caring! Dr Kaplan goes out of her way at all times to be accommodating and extraordinarily compassionate.

as a physician, I did truss Dr Kaplan advise, however, the trust somewhat diminishes when she keeps charging everyone out of pocket expenses for 'new tests that aren't covered, I watched how everyone got charged 100s of dollars out of pocket. I switched opthamologists bc of location and the new dr I saw couldn't believe this. He is Colombia University trained, does research, helped invent certain surgical techniques and said there are absolutely no new tests that aren't insurance covered.
