Dr.Kaplan did a great job with my thyroid biopsy. Nothing like I had imagined. He was kind, careful, professional and it didn’t’ take as long as I thought. If I happen to need another one, I would definitely request him.

Biopsy was easier than I remembered from 8 years earlier. Dr .Kaplan and tech, Greg were great. Dr. Kaplan explained the procedure steps. He is very reassuring .. I was out in less than 45 minutes..

Dr. Kaplan was very professional in explaining the reasons for my thyroid biopsy as well the procedure itself. He was very caring and patient. At one point I had a coughing fit and he and his staff waited patiently while I recovered.

Dr. Kaplan was very professional and detailed about the thyroid biopsy explaining the procedure and the possible side effects. The procedure was virtually pain free, though slightly uncomfortable due to the position you have to hold your head and not swallowing at certain times. Due to my compromised immune system, had to reaspirate a fluid filled nodule two weeks later and prescribe some antibiotics. Apparently a very rare situation. Dr. and office called twice to see if was OK. Very caring.

Dr. Kaplan was kind and mindful of me when going through a procedure. I would recommend him for his technique and making a procedure as painless as possible.

While I thought Dr. Kaplan and his nurses had a very nice bedside manner, I am wondering why the intro to this survey does not indicate that he also specializes in needle biopsies........does he?? My wait time was also about 45 minutes. I just wonder if I was 45 minutes late if I would be charged a late fee and then have to re-schedule my appt. I am finding it is ok for patients to have to wait with no one apologizing. It is becoming a world of being at the mercy of doctors availability. Ugh.
