My recent visit was punctual, efficient, and an excellent service. Dr. Caplan reviewed my recent procedures, completed his own evaluation, and took time to listen to and answer the questions I had. I have been a Patient for almost 5 years now,, and would recommend Dr. Caplan and Hamilton Cardiology to anyone in need of such services.

Dr. Caplan is always good with my 98 year old mother. He is very professional and mild mannered…even my mother’s pulmonologist, Dr. Waksman, stated that it would take a lot for Dr. Caplan to lose his cool.

Traveled 175 miles to be cared for by Dr. Caplan. I am totally satisified with his care and the care of Hamilton cardiology since my heart attach some 25 years ago. When I relocated some 22 years ago, I decided to stay with Hamilton Cardiology. I do not regret the decision.

Hamilton Cardiology is an fantastic medical office and Dr. Caplan is amazing. I would highly recommend them. I have been going there for over three years and would never consider going anywhere else. They are very conscious of the current environment and handle it with care and consideration. They have streamlined check in and I have never waited for my appointment. Dr. Caplan is an excellent Cardiologist. He put me at ease with initial concerns I had and has carefully treated and monitored every concern. The only thing greater than his medical experience is his bedside manner. It is always a pleasure to see him and he gives you his fill attention, very warm and personable.

Dr. Caplan came as a recommendation from one of his colleagues from an er visit. Hamilton cardiology was very quick to make my appt they called me while I was still in the hospital to set it up, sign in was quick, wait time was fine as they are following safety guidelines. Dr. Caplan was very educated I didn’t feel rushed he explained everything clearly to me told me the plan of action I asked my questions, he asked his, he wasn’t trying to give me any unnecessary tests, excellent bedside manner really cares and listens to the patients. Thank You Dr. Caplan!!

Dr. Caplan has been my cardiologist for at least 20 years. My late husband started with him and I quickly followed. Very personable and knowledgeable. Anyways makes the time to listen and explains things fully until you understand completely the full scope of the matter. Very proactive in the diagnosis of your individual condition.

I was checked in by Dr. Caplan staff and waited for my visit. The nurse did my EKG and then Diane did my Defib check. After that a super visit with Dr. caplan. He went over my test, we talked about my medication and then he let me asked questions i had. One of my biggest concern is that i am allergic to sulfa, pencilllian and can't take a flu shot. was i okay for COVID VACCINE. he strongly suggested i take the shot at the hospital for safety reasons, and i so agreed with that. Had other concerns which he was kind enough to answer. He is amazing and i have recommended him to other, and now my husband wants to move into his care.

Very articulate! Reviews the data of prescribed tests and presents them in a manner that can be understood. Additionally he shows concern for his patients. With Dr. Caplin you’re not a NUMBER-you’re treaded as a person. He is very professional - I recommend him highly and would not see any other cardiologist without Dr. Caplan’s approval.
