I found her to be very kind. She talked to me before my procedure and explained what was going to happen. After the procedure she explained what had been done and how I was to follow up. She is an excellent doctor with a very nice bedside manner.

Dr. Kaplounov is excellent! I could not ask for a better colonoscopy procedural experience. When my wife needs to have the same procedure next year, she will use Dr. K as well. In addition, the entire staff was top notch, I mean everyone that I encountered. I recommend her without any reservation whatsoever.

I went to Dr. Kaplounov for a second opinion, and she had done a number of tests and procedures to give me the right diagnosis that a previous gastroenterologist wasn't able to determine.. Ever since I've been Dr K's patient. She is very knowledgeable, profound, thorough and very thoughtful. I trust her completely, and would be happy to recommend her to others. Her staff is very pleasant and caring. They provide high class care overall. Thank you, Dr. K!!

in Bogota, NJ |
Dr. Kaplounov is an excellent doctor! I had my first colonoscopy 5 years ago and she and her team were fantastic. I was comfortable and a little scared of the unknown however she made me feel confident with her confidence. I was perfect afterwards. No symptoms, side effects, ill feelings. Nothing. I went and ate! 5 years later I am back for my 2nd and again, just fantastic. She also helped me with other private issues. She and her team worked for me to get what I needed. You can trust her!
River Vale NJ |
DR. K, while being both professional and thorough, is caring and makes a patient comfortable. She takes the time to listen and follow up. BOth my husband and I have decided to continue with Dr. K for our future needs. I had been recommended to Dr. K for prior gastro problems and, coincidentally, while experiencing a medical emergency one evening, Dr. K was the on call ER physician who oversaw my husband's treatment. We both recommend Dr. Kaplounova for excellent care.
in Edgewater, NJ |
I am writing on behalf of my father who is 83 and has been in poor health for months. We needed a second opinion and Dr. Kaplounov bed side manner and attention to his condition was most welcomed.
Just had a endoscopy & endoscopy with Dr. Kaplounova. All I can say was that this is a 5 star physician. Explains everything, professional, pleasant and truly cares about her patients. This was my first endoscopy & endoscopy so I was very apprehensive, but her bedside manner is superb. It was a truly wonderful experience being her patient! The staff was very pleasant as well!
