Patient Comments (5)
Park Ridge, IL |
I was in the hospital for kidney surgery with Dr. Kaplinsky, and he never stopped by to see me either before or after the operation. Even worse, he changed the date of my surgery to the next day and didn't bother to tell me. I learned of the change only when a scheduler called to confirm the new date. I was shocked. At the surgery follow-up in his office, he didn't offer any suggestions about what I could do to prevent future kidney problems. Very disappointing. Find someone else.

Dr Kaplinsky is the kindest most caring physician by far. He makes you feel comfortable by explaining the problem thoroughly as well as the procedure needed. Excellent surgeon as well. I am very grateful that I was recommended to see him.

The Doctor is ok. The office staff however is horrible. Ladies are rude, condescending, lack of customer service and horrible in communicating. They actually accuse patients of making mistakes when questioning their procedures. Horribly unorganized. I've been to many doctors in my lifetime but this is probably the worst office and treatment I ever received.

My mom took my pre-dementia father to see Dr. Kaplinsky. Their visit was mortifying. This doctor was completely rude, obnoxious and made inappropriate comments. I wouldn't send my enemies to him.
