1. Dr. Kaplan has an amazing bedside manner

One of the most common praises that patients sing about Dr. Kaplan is his incredible bedside manner.

He understands that each and every patient is here to find relief and goes above and beyond to ensure that his patients are heard and cared for. 

“Dr. Kaplan is a great physician. He always takes his time and never makes me feel rushed. Answers questions thoroughly. His medical care and bedside manner happen to also be excellent!”

Because of his dedication to providing exceptional patient care, many of his patients have gone on to refer him to their loved ones. Hear from a real patient how Dr. Kaplan not only provided long-term relief from chronic sinus problems but also how his compassionate care made her feel like herself again.

2. Dr. Kaplan cares about his patients’ comfort

Not only is Dr. Kaplan committed to providing excellent bedside manners to his patients, but he also prioritizes their comfort before, during, and after their procedure. This is another reason why patients say he is the best sinus surgeon they have encountered. Although a procedure like balloon sinuplasty is virtually painless, some patients still feel nervous or uneasy about having any type of medical surgery. 

Because of this, Dr. Kaplan offers IV sedation to his patients to ensure that they feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Hear from a real balloon sinuplasty patient who says IV sedation helped make the procedure “a piece of cake.”

Regardless of what procedure or treatment you opt for, Dr. Kaplan and his staff will do whatever they can to ensure that you feel as comfortable, relaxed, and confident as possible throughout the entire process. 

“Dr. Kaplan is a very caring and knowledgeable ENT physician. He was recommended to me by another reputable doctor as one of the best. He explained in very clear language the procedure he was going to perform. He and his staff did a great job at making me feel comfortable and confident that I was in very good hands.”
