I have been going to Dr. Kaplan for almost ten years. He is so nice and personable, and his staff is friendly and helpful. Plus, the wait times have improved over the years, which has been great.

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 take the 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!

If I could give ZERO stars, I would. On the first visit, Dr. Kaplan seemed nice enough, but everything went downhill from there. I can echo some of the previously posted complaints: -During my pregnancy he never once tested my urine. This is my second pregnancy so I know from my first that it should be tested every visit. -They do not accept credit card, cash only, and have no problem sending multiple bills, voicemails, and handwritten letters home. Talk about intimidating... -When I first mentioned potentially switching doctors (I told him it was for convenience of location as I was "moving" but I was in fact lying because I felt too scared to say I was unhappy with him as my doctor) he proceeded to trash talk my decision telling me that every hospital in Brooklyn is trash and that I would be out of my mind to have my baby anywhere other than NYU and that if something were to end up wrong with my baby I would regret it. -All visits felt rushed, he never asked me anything other than "any morning sickness? Breast feeling tender?" At every visit. He never took the time to explain what was happening, or what the tests were for that he was sending me offsite for unless I asked. -When I asked if he would be delivering my baby he said "Me or someone else"...I asked if I would be able to meet this other doctor before my due date and he said "Maybe but for what?!" And brushed me off. -When I finally got them to prepare a copy of my file for me so I could switch doctors, (after being told I couldn't have it until I settled my bill with them, which I did!) I was charged .75 per page. NOTE: he charged me for ALL the pages my previous doctor faxed over from my first pregnancy!! Not just for my less than 5 months of visits with him, I paid close to $50 for a file full of information I didn't need. And now for possibly the worst part of all.... On my last visit with him, Dr. Kaplan gave me my file in the waiting room, and while in the waiting room, proceeded to say "Make sure your new doctor knows we saw some cysts on the babies brain, could be a soft marker for Down syndrome" and left me there to wait for my actual visit to begin. I sat there alone, in shock, scared and confused. Who the hell tells that to a pregnant woman, without giving more detail, in a WAITING ROOM?! He finally gave me more detail when I (not him) brought it up asking to explain. He was literally just going to check the heart beat and send me on my way. I have since switched doctors (returned to the one who delivered my first son who is amazing but the commute sucks) and he was so angry when I filled him in. He also informed me that Dr Kaplan had overlooked important blood work I should have received and that he scheduled the anatomy scan way too early. He reassured me that Dr Kaplan was using a scare tactic with the cyst comment as all other markers appeared negative these cysts are extremely common and typically disappear on their own later in pregnancy. Overall, the entire experience was a nightmare. He is a money hungry, intimidating bully, who is highly unprofessional and has terrible bedside manner. Please, avoid this practice at all costs!

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 best experience.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 got argumentative 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.

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, he changed 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.

Dr. Kaplan was easy to talk to and made the visit as smooth and comfortable as possible. I absolutely HATE going to the doctor but didn't hate my appointment with Dr. Kaplan at all. Everyone in his office, the receptionist, the nurses, and the doctor himself, helped to make me feel relaxed. Also, the wait time was impressively short! (Think nonexistent.) I think I found my new permanent gynecologist.

I have been going to Dr. Kaplan for over 7 years. He takes the time to listen, is very friendly and provides excellent care - I've had multiple issues and he explains them, what the tests will be, what the potential outcomes are and then what the treatment is depending on the test results. Great experience all around. The association with NYU is also great because of the level of care they offer. My only complaint is the wait time - which can sometimes be long. So just plan accordingly. He's very popular.
