I have been a patient of Dr. Kaplan's for at least 20 years. He is very professional and takes time to get to know his patient. If one thing doesn't work he tries something else. I have the most confidence in him as a Doctor and would highly recommend him.

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 an experienced practitioner, who embodies the best attributes of the medical profession. He is thorough, calm, attentive, caring and informative.. He is also extremely competent, as testified to by his associates. I did not pick him. He picked me,and i am very glad he did.. I had double pneumonia, and a blood oxygen sat level of only 73%. While I was hospitalized he visited me at least once per day, including once after 10:00 p.m., which the nurses told me was not unusual .

Dr. Kaplan has been my care giver for over 15 years. He was my mother's, is my father's as well. We consider him practically family, and don't make any health decisions without his consult. He is profoundly kind, and a patient listener. His staff is always friendly and helpful, and some of the greatest caregivers I have had the privilege of working with. I completely trust this physician, and that is a rare, and blessed situation. I highly recommend these Angels, they are formidable!
