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.
