Patient Comments (3)
in Harvard, MA |
Dr. Caplan is courteous, and capable. He listens to you. He's easy and wonderful to communicate with, and it's always a pleasure to see him. He actually wrote a book on stroke. In my first appointment, he made several excellent suggestions that had immediate results in dealing with my deficits from a stroke. Prior to that, I was dealing with another major teaching hospital located on Francis street. The neurologist there had no idea how to deal with my symptoms and left me hanging for 8 months

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.
