Dr Kaplan is a class act. I appreciate his willingness to listen to concerns, answer and his approachability. I REALLY appreciate his humbleness and ease to talk with. I get sick of surgeons thinking they are godlike figures. It is VERY refreshing to encounter a Dr like Mr. Kaplan who is sincere, humble and sincerely cares about his patients.
