Overland Park, KS |
Excellent Dr. who really listened and showed concern.
Both visits was very pleasant. I was very nervous in anticipation of my first visit, but Dr. Kaplan put me at ease. He explained everything very well and took time to answer all of my questions. He was very thorough in reviewing my situation. He did not jump to do any extra tests that other doctors suggested, but rather wanted to see me and hear my side of the story. I totally appreciate that! Second visit was to complete breathing tests. Everthing went well.

If you are reading this, you should know there really are no words in exixtance that describe what a wonderful person and amazing doctor James Kaplan is. I have been a patient of Dr Kaplan since, I think, about 1994. He is the most compassionate and kindest doctor I have ever met. It doesn't matter the circumstance, or the health issue he always has your best interest and NO I am not a relative.

Dr. Kaplan took over for my regular doctor when he left, and I couldn't of be happier that I got another great doctor that will listen to me, and encouraging me at all times, and to be straight with me on my health issues. Thank you dr. Kaplan

Absolutely brilliant doctor! Was careful to correctly diagnose and treat my severe infection (after I had been misdiagnosed multiple times by other docs, causing much lung scarring). Compassionate, very wise and helpful. I'm so grateful that he took on my very challenging case! I had given up and didn't think there was hope for me.

Dr. Kaplan is the best physician in the Kansas City area. He has saved my life multiple times and always knows how to adjust my medications to make my asthma better. I have severe resistant asthma and last year Dr. Kaplan performed a cutting edge procedure called Bronchial Thermoplasty which has reduced my hospitalizations by 70% this year and has vastly improved my quality of life. I would recommend Dr. Kaplan to everyone as there is no one better! I know as I am a RN, MSN myself.
