I do not recommend this doc I had several horrible experiences. She could never remember what she said from one appointment to the next even after being reminded. She refused to believe that she had sent me to another doctor for blood work, and adamantly denied it until I provided her with the paperwork for proof. She tried several times to fit some kind of ailment into my diagnosis that didn't exist. During the pandemic I called to make an appointment, she set up a ridiculous virtual office visit, that took two weeks to get, it lasted all of 5 minutes she charged me for it, and then said I would need to make a face to face visit, so that she could take my BP and that visit would be in two more weeks. so actually she did nothing in the virtual visit other than take my money. I told her that I was dissatisfied and would like my money back, she refused to respond and never refunded the money. She totally wasted my time. I called another doctor and got an appointment the very next day.

Dr. Nancy Kaplitz is my favorite doctor. She is an excellent neurologist, very easy to talk with. She is caring and compassionate. I never feel rushed, she makes you feel very comfortable about talking about your health. I moved to the Florida Keys from Baltimore as a patient of Johns Hopkins Hospital, when I was referred to Dr. Kaplitz. At my first visit I felt very lucky to have her as my doctor. Dr. Kaplitz is an awesome neurologist.
