Todays visit with this man was horrible. After waking up at 4:30am and spending hours just to get my father screaming in pain to the car in order to make this appointment with him he walked in and spent a matter of 5 minutes with us. He Poked my dad twice in the back and asked his pain level. After...Read More

They were aggressive, unapologetic and plain ignorant. Do not blame your patients for your own mistakes. Clearly these...Read More

I wish I could give negative stars. He is INCREDIBLY condescending, arrogant and disrespectful. I was unfortunately unable to see my current Orthopedic Surgeon due to my insurance, and after an injury, I had to see Dr. Kaplan. I wasn't in the appointment for 5 minutes, before he was done. Never...Read More
