I first consulted Dr. Kaplan in 1988 when I wanted a second opinion on the treatment I was receiving at another medical center. Dr. Kaplan reassured me the treatment was appropriate. I returned to him several times after that for follow up and referrals to other physicians. He always gave me good advice and good referrals. He always returned my phone calls. Finally, he saved my life when, as a 19 year survivor of the BrCA, I consulted him for a check up. Something extremely small on a CAT scan cought his eye and he followed it closely with imaging over the next 8 months. Finally, he referred me to a pulmonologist and surgeon for a possible lung ca. Those doctors followed me for a few months and finally diagnosed lung CA. I lost one lobe of my left lung in 2007. The lesion was still very small. Without Dr. Kaplan's suspicions and close following, the CA probably would never have been discovered until was too late. I owe him my life. JS
He has been my doctor for 18 years. Marvelous in every way. Compassionate, extensive fund of knowledge. Answers ALL my questions. I never mind if I have to wait a bit, for I know he has taken extra time with me when it really mattered. Cancer needs extra time sometimes. I tend to make appts. at the beginning of the day. I recommend him without reservation.
I trust dr. Kaplan with my life. He has earned that trust over the seventeen years he has monitored my remission from a rare cancer. I don't need to know everything about my disease because he does. And, even though I revere his expertise, I also feel that he is my friend.
Best doctor in the world - doesn't chat much, but spends time with you when it's necessary and is able to filter out all the other chaos in the clinic. Is totally committed to you from initial appointment to remission. I trusted my life to Hank, and I'd do it again. Everyone at Swedish Cancer Center from the receptionist to the pet-scan tech is first rate!
Highly conscientious, but is unable or unwilling to answer common questions or provide patient teaching about care options, or to provide others who will, ESPECIALLY any questions about medication effects other than remission. If you don't want to know much about your cancer and only want reassurance about recommendations, he's a great guy.
Hank is one of the best doctors i have ever had. He is caring, takes the time to explain his diagnosis and walks you through the medical options you have. I highly recommend him because i don't know many doctors that devote so much time to their patients
