I was “transferred” to Dr. Caplan when previous doctor left office. Dr. Caplan has been extremely thoughtful, caring and concerned with my medical condition.

Had a telephone conversation with Dr. Caplan as my semi annual checkup regarding my pacemaker. Everything was normal - the pacemaker was accessed remotely and did not need any adjustments. Reported my blood pressure and pulse rate. Scheduled my next appointment. Really liked the telephone appointment.
