My girls have been seeing Dr Kaplan and his group since birth. We trust Dr Kaplan and he is a very caring and professional doctor. My kids actually look forward to going to their doctor appointments. Dr. Kaplan is a great doctor to see for new moms as he really listens and cares about the family.

***I copied & pasted my Yelp review here since i still feel the same way*** First off, there is a "sick" waiting room & a "well" waiting room. AMAZING! Second, as soon as we walk in, it's very child friendly! The nurses, doctors & staff are very accommodating, informative and helpful. I love the nurse line when my baby is sick. I also love how wonderful everyone is with my children. 10 out of 10. So happy I switched pediatricians!!!

Dr. Kaplan was my children's doctor, they are now 27 and 25. I'm recommending my daughter to him for the care of my granddaughter. Dr. Kaplan, is kind, compassionate and straight forward. My son was born with a cardiac defect and after he was in the hospital for a month and had open heart surgery, he was still our primary doctor. He always knew what was needed and took excellent care of both my children.

My daughter used to have high anxiety about going to the doctor. Our previous pediatrician was TERRIBLE. When we switched to Dr. Kaplan's office, that completely changed. She actually looked forward to doctor visits. She even asked to go when she WASN'T sick so she could see him! (I wouldn't take her?I figure they're busy enough with appointments.) Dr. Kaplan always got my daughter laughing, so she loved him. ALL of the doctors in this office are wonderful - you can't go wrong.
