Dr. Kaplan is fantastic. She was very kind, thoughtful, and thorough. She ordered all the tests I requested, plus some extra she thought might bring answers to the issues I’ve been having. Her website says she’s LGBT friendly and I canattest to that. She didn’t blink an eye when I told her I’m a lesbian. She merely noted it in my chart and went on with the exam. I will definitely be back to see her. There was one nurse who runs the front AND the back. She also did my blood work and was so kind and friendly. The wait was about 5-10 minutes which in comparison to other doctors offices is phenomenal. The only negative thing about my visit was the $6 parking fee, which the office doesn’t validate. I’d say that leaves Dr. Kaplan’s office and staff at a solid 5 stars. Fantastic service, I found my new doctor. So thrilled!

Dr. Kaplan is incredible. She and I had a consultation first about birth control options, and she really spent a lot of time really talking me through what would be best for me and my needs. She has been my favoritedoctor by far and she always listened to me and genuinely cares. Highly recommend her.

Dr. Kaplan is a master in her field! She took the time to interview me, ask pertinent questions about my health issues/goals before performing a full battery of tests, and gave me a full assessment of my results as well as doable, nonmedical recommendations to heal myself.

Id recommend because Dr.Kaplan is clearly competent and sharp- if you’re looking for gentle/compassionate beside manner, you may be a wee disappointed. Been to the office a few times, the front office staff leaves something to be desired.A bit neglectful, it was often hard for me to get clear on what was going on b/c of lack of communication. Still, nothing that would cause me to choose a new OBY-yet. Hopefully it was just a tough start.

Honestly, this was the best OBGYN I’ve ever had. She was funny and easy to relate to. I feel so comfortable with Dr. Kaplan. I really felt like I could discuss anything. ZocDoc double booked me at their office and itwasnt their fault that they wait was sin long.

Doctor was amazing however her staff was not. My prescription was never called in and no matter how nice they were to me in the office, the fact the nurse seemingly forgot to call my prescription in is absurd.

Dr. Kaplan is a gem. Extremely knowledgeable ans addressed every concern I had concerning vaginal health. I was very comfortable throughout my visit, and was treated exceedingly well. I have found my new GYN in Atlanta. I am hoping she’s stillpracting by the time I decide to have babies.

My visit with this physician was extremely disappointing. Her bedside manner is awful and riddled with condescension and judgement. When I was taken back to the exam room, I first spoke to her nurse. She went over my medical history andasked what I was there to see the doctor about. I told the nurse exactly why I was there. The reason for my visit was also detailed in the Zocdoc forms that they had on hand. The nurse is nice, takes down my information and leaves the room. When the doctor finally walks into the room (followed by the nurse), her and the nurse can’t seem to get straight why I was there. The doctor thought one thing and the nurse was saying another. Isn’t the entire point of the nurse interviewing me to sync up with and align with the doctor before the doctor treats me? I am then led by the doctor from the exam room to her office to discuss my concerns. I thought to myself “ok, maybe they are just having a rough start to the morning.” But no, it got worse. As I explained my medical concerns to her, I was met with a ridiculous amount of judgement and snark. I brought up fertility as a woman in my mid thirties. She literally said out loud “oh boy!” and shook her head. Seriously?! When discussing my weight, she looks at me and says “do you have access to a gym?” I politely responded “yes”. Then in a very sarcastic and judgmental manner she states “then use it!” At this point, I am taken a back and appalled. The conversation only got worse with her making additional quips about me: “if you could only grow taller, the weight wouldn’t be an issue,” and then laughing. But, I maintain my composure and smile because I was so caught off guard by her snarky demeanor. I am not the type of person that gets offended easily, but she was very condescending in nature, and this is unacceptable if you are a physician. She treated me as if I was just some random woman off the street who knew nothing about my health. If she would have asked even one question about me she would have realized that I work in the healthcare industry, and advise hospitals and physicians. She then led me back to the exam room where the nurse had prepped the room for the wrong thing. The doctor and nurse again go back and forth on why I am there and then leave the room. Five minutes later the doctor comes back in and asks me why I am not dressed in the paper gown. No one told me to get undressed! THEN, she tells me that I need to switch exam rooms because they want to move the LabCorp representative who takes patients’ blood into my exam room. The appointment only got worse from there. I ended up self diagnosing and just requesting the prescription that I needed. After the appointment (days later), I had to call in and request that they post my lab results!! They apologized for posting the results late, but it was just the cherry on top of a lousy experience. To the doctor - my advice to you is: lose the judgmental, condescending attitude. I would wholeheartedly NEVER recommend this physician to any woman.

Everyone in the office was very nice and courteous. Dr. Kaplan was very attentive and caring about my condition. She is very knowledgeable. I have been to other Ob/Gyn's and they weren't as thorough and detailed as Dr. Kaplan was. I will continue going to her instead. Great practice.

Ok. .I love Dr Kaplan...from my first visit to my last she is an awesome person! The entire staff made me feel welcome to continue to come back. She answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed during anyof my visits, I just wished she delivered babies, be searching for a ob/gyn like her and its not been an easy task. She is the best! I miss her and her staff....

She's very thorough and you don't feel like she's just rushing through your visit to see the next patient in the room next door like too many physicians tend to do. She listed to my concerns and discussed what options Ihad. The staff are also very warm, friendly and organized. I would recommend Dr. Kaplan if you're looking for a OBGYN for sure!

I absolutely love Dr. Kaplan. I'm elated she decided to leave her previous employer and decided to start her own practice. Dr. Kaplan does not rush me and is extremely attentive to my needs. Most importantly, as a woman in her40's who got married later in life and wants children, Dr. Kaplan has never judged me and has done everything in her power to assist me and my husband. I'm thankful for Dr. Kaplan's care.
