Terrible bedside manner, sarcastic and oftentimes had me see his PA. He stalled me for months to replace my knee so I chose a true professional and am extremely happy I did.

My father had a knee replacement surgery which was not entirely successful. He was told to give it another year or so for his knee to fully recover. If not, Dr. Kaplan would perform a minor procedure to fix it. 2 years later his knee was in as much pain as before. During our last visit, I asked about my father's upcoming surgery and what had gone wrong in the first place. Dr. Kaplan suggested that my father perhaps had not taken care of his knee the proper way after the surgery. Dr. Kaplan then preceded to say "I wouldn't put your father through another surgery because of his age (early 70s) if I was you, I will not do it, there isn't really anything else I can do"...He then handed me my dad's entire medical history folder. Most disturbing to me, however, was the fact that Dr. Kaplan recorded our entire conversation with a female assistant as a witness the whole time. Upon talking to other patients we realize that it isn't the first time this happens with Dr. Kaplan.

This review is not for Dr. Kaplan, but for office receptionists. I didn’t have a chance to meet the doctor because the service is awful. By using your “Request Appointment” website - I requested an appointment and waited to hear from the office. When I called - receptionist told me that someone called and left me a voice message. It was not true. Dr. Kaplan, I hope I’m the only one who has to look for another doctor because your receptionists don’t do their work.
