      We love Dr Kaplan. Both of my children feel very comfortable around him and are always happy to see him.
      in Cypress, CA |
      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.

      Dr Kaplan is rushed from the moment he walks into the room. He is very rushed in the way he speaks and be never lets you finish a sentence. My daughter is 6 and he never told her what he was doing before he did it. This included him putting his hands on her in attempt to take her dress off. He is very abrupt and has no bedside manner. I find it so hard to believe that people have had good experiences with him.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Kaplan's Care Philosophy

      As a Pediatrician I have the responsibility to provide parents with medical, behavioral and psychological care to allow them to keep them healthy, enjoy their children and let them grow up. Watching families grow and see how babies become children, and then adolescents, and then adults is an amazing thing to be part of and see develop. Providing the office and staff to do that is our goal and responsibility.
