I have been going to Dr Kaplan for years now. I have had both my kids by having him as my Ob. He’s an amazing doctor , he’s directly to the point , compassionate and caring to my needs and concerns.His Pap smears are effortless , you don’t even realize them they are so quick and painless. He has a wonderful and professional character. Both my kids I delivered naturally with no complications my second was a bit late after his due date and Dr Kaplan waited to the last minute didn’t want me to have me induced and go thru a cesarean and he used his due diligence so well that my son came out naturally and I didnt have to get induced. Today I went for a UTI and again despite the pain and discomfort I was in he took the appropriate measures to see what’s going on and they were as well effortless and quick he gave me some meds to ease my discomfort again very professional very caring. His bedside manner is outstanding . I highly recommend him he’s a true gem not only as a doctor but as a person as well he makes you feel very comfortable and safe ! Beautiful person in and out. Thank you Dr Kaplan for all you do ! You are the best! Highly highly recommend.

Very caring and personable doctor. I had concerns about my medical plan, and he talked me through it and came up with a solution I felt good about. The examination was quick and barely felt like anything. Even though his officeis pretty far from my home and work, I intend to make him my primary obgyn.

I have been going to Dr Kaplan for several years now and every time I see him for a visit it reminds me what a great ObGyn he is and how happy I have been under his care and whenI compare my experience with him to all the other ObGyns I had seen previously I am repeatedly reminded that he is by far the BEST!! He was also the first male ObGyn that I ever went to and it was by far my best experience. He has a busy practice(not surprising because he is so outstanding)but I never wait long to see him. His office staff is so nice and accommodating and if I ever have a problem they fit me in immediately to see him(no matter how busy he is)and if I ever have a question while not in the office they will put him on the phone with me promptly(a very different experience than with all the other ObGyns). I never feel rushed with him and he always gives me plenty of time to ask all of my questions(and I often have many) and he is the only doctor(ObGyn or any other type of doctor) who speaks to me before and after each examination in his consultation room(also totally different from every other doctor). Dr Kaplan and his staff are so caring, knowledgeable and professional. His examinations are most thorough yet totally painless(very different from my previous experiences). He delivered babies for a few friends of mine and they were all thrilled with their whole experience.I can’t wait for him to deliver mine in the future. His reviews on Zocdoc are phenomenal and that’s why I decided to go to him initially and if I ever see a rare unfavorable review it makes me think that this rare malcontented patient must have their own issues and problems, and is not a reflection on him but on them. I do not think that they will ever be happy with any doctor. Highly recommend you will be thrilled!!

I went to Dr Kaplan for months of continued bleeding and pain after a MC. The visit seemed fine. He asked me to call back for my results. When I did the office told me my pap smear was normal. Iexplained I didn't have a pap smear. They checked and came back and then said my bv panel is normal. I then asked if they're are any recommendations for the continued bleeding/pain.. the receptionist said "No, that's it". I've never felt so poorly cared for by a physician. I've since moved one to another gynecologist.

I have been going to Dr Kaplan for a few years now and after having gone to a few other ObGyns before him I can honestly say that he is by far the BEST!! He is the most caring, patient, informative,gentle and most respectful ObGyn I have ever been to. He is also the first male ObGyn I ever went to and it was by far my best experience. If I ever have any concerns he will always return my call promptly and will always fit me in ASAP (his staff is so nice and accommodating). I have never felt rushed and he is the only ObGyn that speaks to me before and after the exam in his consultation room while I am fully dressed. The other ObGyns saw me only in their exam room and I never spoke to them in their consultation room. He delivered 2 of my girlfriend’s babies and they both had great experiences. One of them was a high risk, complicated pregnancy. His reviews are phenomenal (that’s why I came to him initially) and if I ever see a rare negative review it suggests to me that that rare patient must have her own personal issues, and it has nothing to do with him, and I doubt any doctor will ever make her happy. Highly recommend. He is the BEST!!

I usually don't take the time to write reviews - good, bad or indifferent, but after my appointment with Dr. Kaplan this morning, and all the time he spent with me, I thought it was only fair for me to takethe time, too. I have been a patient of Dr. Kaplan's for more than 20 years. He is an excellent doctor, but besides that, his compassion and the personal interest he takes, is really uncommon in doctors these days. I, myself, have never been pregnant, but he delivered my sister's baby and I also referred him to a few young co-workers who all used him for their pregnancies and deliveries and all were very happy and are still current patients. But what was outstanding for me today, especially, was that I am having some personal issues not related to my health at all. As soon as I walked in, Dr. Kaplan knowing me so well, knew right away that something was wrong. After the exam, I went into his office where he proceeded to talk to me and listen to me chatter and cry for 30 minutes. I was fortunate that he had a last minute cancellation right after my appointment, but I know he would've spent the time with me anyway. He is more than just a doctor going through the motions of a routine check up, but he treats you as a person and really listens. He really made me feel so much better. I have also had some health scares in the past,and then too, he was so reassuring and made me feel so calm and most importantly, treated me successfully for the medical issues. I read a negative review below, and while I was not there, I just can't imagine Dr. Kaplan treating any patient like that. As I said, I have been going to him for over 20 years and have referred so many other patients to him and no one has ever had anything bad to say. We are all so happy with him. Dr. Kaplan is the best!

Avoid him; he is a liar. After reading some reviews on a different page, I asked him twice if he was going to deliver my baby. But he lied because he doesn't deliver at NYU (confirmed by NYC personnel). Also, hechanged me for the cord blood banking procedure that he was going to do, but he knew he wasn't going to perform such procedure because he doesn't deliver at NYU. He only cares about the mo.ney.

I have been going to Dr Kaplan for couple years after having gone to several other ObGyns and he was by far the BEST. He was also the first male ObGyn I went to and it was by far my bestexperience.His staff is efficient, accommodating, and so sweet and I never wait long to be seen. If I ever have questions(not during my visit with him)he will always return my call promptly and address all my questions and concerns and I never feel rushed ever.He is so caring, empathetic and always available. His exams are most thorough but also quick and gentle. He always makes me feel so comfortable.He always talks to me before the exam in his consultation room and after the exam (after I have gotten dressed) we return to his consultation room to go over everything and to answer any further questions I might have. No previous ObGyn was ever this attentive. He delivered several of my friends' babies and they all had such great experiences. This is the way every ObGyn should treat his patients.This is why my friends and I love him so much and would never go anywhere else. The Best. Highly recommend !!

I'm extremely upset with my experience here. I was told I would miscarry by Dr Kaplan. He delivered the news via telephone after I had a more robust ultrasound at one of partner locations. He was cold, not empathetic, and gotargumentative when I was asking questions around my miscarriage and the chances that I wouldn't. He had given me no advice on what medicine to take, what to expect in terms of pain and/or what to do when it begins to happen. When I finally began to naturally miscarry a few days later, I was in SO much pain, so my husband called Dr. Kaplan to ask for his advice on what to do. Dr. Kaplan reprimanded my husband saying that he should have come in with me to the doctor and said "as I told your wife, this is going to happen". Again...NO empathy or care at all. Just straight up rude and reprimanding. HOW do you treat people like this when they are losing their baby?? Also on a side note, he didn't use gloves when performing an in-office ultrasound which was disgusting and unsanitary.

I was late for my appointment and was still seen and out in about 30-45 minutes.I love that when you go there you are not wasting your whole day sitting down and waiting for like 10 ppl to go before you bc we all was scheduled for the same time.
