    Rude and unprofessional
    in Round Rock, TX |
    My family and I have had great experiences with Dr. Kaplan. He has treated myself, my husband, and my daughter who had seen 6 Orthopedic Spine doctors from Austin to Dallas before getting relief by Dr. Kaplan. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a doctor who is patient, extremely knowledgeable, and willing to think out of the box.

    My dear friend and I went to him via referral from a physician. Drove from out of town to office in Austin in hopes of helping with pain from severe arthritis. Dr. Was not only rude but had no compassion. He was not there to help. His words were unkind and uncaring. She left the office in tears midway through the appointment. He has no idea what she has been through. He had no interest. Find a different physician who hasn't forgotten what it means to help, care and above all.....listen.

    Worst pain ever while seeing Dr. Kaplan. He made me feel bad, like I was doing something wrong each time I asked for a dose increase of pain medicine. He started me off at a small amount, that didn't make me feel anywhere near comfortable with my pain. Also received costisone injections numerous times by Dr. Kaplan. He insisted that I did not need sedation or any medicine prior to getting these shots in my neck and back. Even one that was done at a surgical center. Felt worse not better.

    On a scale of 1-10, my back pain was at 15. I was referred to Dr. Kaplan via an ER visit. I called his office on Monday morning, that same day his staff scheduled an appt. for me at 11:00; Dr. Kaplan arranged for an MRI at 5:00; he called me at home at 9:30 p.m. to confirm his diagnosis and scheduled me for a steroid injection the next morning, Tuesday at 8:00. He has an excellent bedside manner and showed me tender compassion. He fixed me. I could not have been better served.
