San Marcos, CA |
I’ve seen Dr Kaplan for almost 8 years and have often recommended him to anyone looking for a good rhematologist. He really is a great doctor but he treats his staff horribly and has a high turnover rate of staff. His current office staff are rude, unprofessional, do not listen at all and have made it impossible to get the treatments and appointments I need. You can call for days and have no one answer or leave messages to never receive a reply. Because of this I’m looking for a new doctor.

Staff and front desk for Kaplan's Office are very rude and unprofessional. Took weeks for me to put together a medical package as requested, and even then they would not set an appointment for me. Save your time, energy and money on a rheumatologist who actually cares about treating you. I highly do not recommend this doctors office.

Dr. Kaplan is the best. Period. His knowledge and compassion can't be matched. He is widely respected as the best in his field. Be prepared for the best care you have ever received if you are smart enough to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kaplan. He has treated me for nearly 20 years. Give yourself the blessing and privilege of being one of his patients. I must mention that each and every one of his supporting staff, from front desk to PA are also top notch.

Excellent Plus. He will be my forever Rheumatologist. He was everything I'd look for in a Dr. He was very thorough, patient with my many questions and I could tell he was sincerely interested in relieving my pain. He communicates well. He seemed very kind and I completely trust his judgement and to treat me with the best outcome possible.
