    Dr Kaplan was on of the best surgeons i have ever met. His professionalism is top notch.. I would highly recommend his to anyone.. He explains everything down to the last minute detail... I am so glad i had him for a surgeon...
    in Henderson, NV |
    Dr Kaplan and his assistance Ryan were most professional in identifying the Sciatic Nerve Problem and performing the surgery to relieve the condition. Very direct during office visit(s) and quite personable. However, he is a very busy doctor but knows what to do and how to do it. Very successful surgery of L-4 & L-5. Would recommend Dr Kaplan to any of our friends. Was recommended to wife by Chiropractic Doctor who mentioned he was a quite busy doctor but we never experienced long waits.
