I visited with Dr. Kaplan via video chat on behalf of my father-in-law, Charles Williams. (He does not have a phone that will allow such a video visit, so I facilitated the chat.) Charles was very pleased with the attention he received from Dr. Kaplan. The visit was pretty brief, but Dr. Kaplan ordered an oxygen tank for Charles and he seems to be sleeping much better as a result. (Dr. Dan Knight)

Dr. Kaplan listens carefully, explains well, is thorough, and always prepared to explain test results. He is efficient, on time, and has empathy for his patients. He was one of my doctors in the hospital several years ago when I was sent there by ambulance from another doctor. During the course of 5 days, I was so impressed with his manner of care and desire to find a solution that I said that I wanted to be his patient. I continue to be pleased with the great care I received from Dr. Kaplan and his staff.

Dr. Kaplan and his staff are always knowledgeable, patient, understanding and caring. Dr. Kaplan has improved the quality of my life by diagnosing and treating a condition that other doctors over the years couldn't help. He listens extremely well and is always cheerful and positive. I have immense confidence in his care and I would recommend him highly to others. At the bottom on the ratings I intended to check 5 stars for all categories but it does not appear that way, and I was unable to correct my error.

Dr. Kaplan has the gift of explanation. He is refreshingly easy to understand and spends the right amount of time with his patients, at least from my purview. Dr. Kaplan's reassuring manner is one you wish all your doctors possessed. Add to that his wealth of knowledge, and you have a prescription for a doctor you would highly recommend to all your friends and family.

Dr Kaplan is by far the best Doctor in the Greater Kansas City area. His knowledge does not stop at pulmonary he looks at all sides of your condition before making a plan to get you healthy again. He does not just refer you to someone else. He has been my Doctor for 30 years and I would recommend him to anyone. He always takes his time to listen and never makes you feel rushed. You will not regret choosing him for you pulmonologist.

Dr. Kaplan has many years in this industry, and he came highly recommended. From my initial appointment, he took a lot of time to get to know me and my health history. He then was able to run additional tests needed to fully assess my situation. I would strongly recommend Dr. Kaplan and his team of Associates.

Dr. Kaplan is a top doctor. He has helped my husband and two sons to improve their breathing problems. He is friendly, professional, and extremely competent. He found the right medications for my husband to improve his health. We have recommended him to others and will continue to do so. His staff is friendly and helpful and respond quickly to questions and concerns.
