I've been a patient of Dr. Caplan's for over 20 years and I can't say enough good things about him. He is brilliant, caring, and stays on the cutting edge of medicine. I am so grateful to be his patient.
in Arlington, MA |
I would strongly recommend Dr. Caplan. I'm 34 years old and suffered a blood clot which in turn led to a stroke. I have 100% confidence in Dr. Caplan and find myself lucky to be treated by him.
