Ratings for Dr. Robert P. Kaplan
Dr Kaplan gave me the most complete physical ever and was not shy about sending me to specialists. I brought a friend to him who ultimately was diagnosed with cancer. Dr. Kaplan personally called a specialist while seeing my friend to make sure my friend was seen the next day. Office wait time? I am happy to wait longer because I know Dr. Kaplan is giving needed help to someone, just as he did for my friend and I.
Doctor Kaplan has been my Primary care doctor for many years. He is patient, precise and effectively caring. Doctors like him don't exist this day and age given that the medical system and reform has lost its way. Thank you Kaplan you are the best! -Rick E
I have been a patient with Dr. Kaplan for about 7 years. I have been extremely happy with his knowledge of all aspects of medicine and his concern of his patients. I have recommended him to several people that have been very happy with him. I feel his office staff are very helpful and friendly. I am a very happy patient and will continue to visit Dr. Kaplan in the future, if I need medical treatment.
I have been dealing with intense abdominal pain and stomach cramping for over four years. Dr. Kaplan is the first doctor that ever fully explained my problems and my options. He referred me to a great gastroenterologist and has been working with that doctor to manage my symptoms. I would recommend him to everyone. It's wonderful to finally feel like someone is listening to me.
The wait is always long, but after six years I am comfortable with Dr. Kaplan, love his nurses!!! I have insurance, not listed above, but even when I have a balance I have NEVER been denied an appointment. Too many drug sales people for my taste, but he is a GOOD doctor. Coordinates with specialists and stays on top of serious conditions. Very caring.
usally late he does not eplain test results & if I do not call I do not know what the results are
He was never consistent or private. They told me I could not see him unless I paid $50 I supposedly owed, but they announced it where everyone could hear, causing me total embarrassment. I saw him for 2 years and he got mad because I missed that appt.I explained that I did not have $50 & he didn't care nor listen. My cardiologist who he referred me to told me to go in & I did call 1st. they told me to get there before he got back from lunch. They tricked me and let my health topple while I was encouraged to come in by his staff after cardio doc told me to via his phone. No HIPAA laws enforced and when I was taken by ambulance to the hospital, he sent his associate who I didn't know & their office is right across from where I was admitted for a week with sever uncontrolled BP & my kidneys took a lashing from the related pain. High BP is no joke!He also put refills on a triple script 2 drug which federal law prohibits refilling & it made RX look suspicious. Thank God the pharmacy knew me
I'm sorry you had a poor experience with this office, but I'd suggest you give them another chance. I've been going here for well over a year and it's the first time I've felt my health was in competent hands. The wait can be long, but it's because Dr. Kaplan takes the time he needs with each patient, reviewing medical records and analyzing data. The staff knows me on a first-time basis, calls with abnormal labs, and actually remembers ME as a person, not just a disease entity. As for money, I've never been turned away, even when unable to pay. I've been provided samples of medications and told to never let the lack of money interfere with keeping my appointments. Competent health care by caring people.
