Average wait time for a scheduled appointment is an hour (on a good day), operation is super unorganized, you have a better chance getting struck by lightening than receiving a call back to a voicemail and the last two times I visited, I was scheduled to see the doctor and ended up with the nurse practitioner.

The final straw was that I took amoxicillian for a dental procedure and ended up with a yeast infection - common for me. They refused to prescribe Diflucan without actually seeing me. My pharmacist was flabbergasted and reached out herself. No response. I called and left a message. No response. Meaning, they expected me to wait an hour for something that is generally given over the phone and, in most countries, is not even a prescription medication. I ended up going to a walk in clinic and left 5 mins later with the prescription in hand. Meanwhile, my long time GYN's office acted like I was asking for narcotics. SMH.

I just came back from waiting for over an hour for my 6:30 appointment without seeing Dr. Kaplan. I understand having to wait 20-30mins..but having a new patient wait over an hour and 10mins is absurd! I asked around an hour when my turn would be - the receptionist said next. However, they called another woman before me citing "only an ultrasound room was available". My fiance called to complain and the office manager took me aside to "talk" to me. Instead of apologizing, she mentioned that is how OB/GYN offices operate..I told her that this was not my first time at a gynecologist office. I understood emergencies came up but no one ever set the expectation with me that my appointment would be delayed because of emergencies. Her response from there was "we've been working here since early morning". I left by saying that they clearly didn't want my business as a new patient if that is how the front lines of this office treats their patients. Unacceptable.

I moved to New Jersey earlier this summer and was pleasantly surprised to find I was pregnant with my first child! After an appointment at a different obstetrician left me feeling neglected, I called Dr. Kaplan. Her and Jen were so wonderful and brought me right in. Being in a new state, learning I was gonna be a mom, and being far from family, they have made this whole experience so amazing. They are both attentive and call back immediately when I have questions. I had a little labor scare mid-way through and they went above and beyond to make sure everything was ok. The nurses are just as great! They are always pleasant and greet you with a smile! I'm due in a month and will miss my weekly appointments! I never "review" anything, but I can't stop raving about the care I've received so far!

DR KAPLAN IS AN ANGEL ON EARTH!!!
I have been a patient of hers for more than 15 years. If you look at her reviews you will see the consistency of her phenomenal health care! Not only is she a brilliant doctor in her decision making, but she is as compassionate as she is intelligent! I have always left her office feeling confident. I have had many issues over the years such as high risk pregnancy with twins, thyroid cancer, and many more. She is attentive, caring, and ALWAYS goes the extra mile to help you. She has called me many times during off hours to give me test results and directions to follow, (not very common in todays medical world!) She is ONE IN A MILLION!!! I can't imagine my life without her medical care!!!

My rating reflects not only Dr. Kaplan's practice but also Jen (Physician Assistant) who exemplifies top-tier healthcare treatment. I've been going to Dr. Kaplan's practice for 5 years. This was at the onset of my 2nd pregnancy after leaving a substandard practice in Livingston. Dr. Kaplan was highly recommended by a sales representative in my company who covers northern NJ. Her recommendation for me was Dr. Kaplan. I've always rec'd top notch care and attention. Jen has been amazing and the staff is always more than eager to address my questions and assist. I highly recommend this practice and often refer friends to them.

I don't know what that other guy is talking about! I Think he reviewed the wrong doctor! She was very attentive! Stayed very late to make sure all of our questions were answered, EXTREMELY concerned for our (my wife's) care, and during our highly complicated, very stressful delivery, she was in control, calm, cool, and supportive. and probably the reason for our successful delivery!

Run away Run Away fast! I am not sure how she gets good reviews here and bad ones other places but I have to chime in. I have known 4 patients that used her for about a year and all changed because of terrible service. We used her because of a friend and working in NY not having to travel to a DR 30 min away from our house was convenient but in the end it wasn't. Her staff is great but we waited over an hour to be seen every time we went. At one point we brought the grandmother to help her get interested (so she would baby sit and be excited) we thought seeing the ultrasound would help we asked the Dr and she said no problem but we waited over an hour finally got in the room and she came in and spent about 30 sec looking at the ultra sound and pointed nothing out to the grandmother and left. My grandmother hates her told me I wasted her time the whole thing went bad an extra 4 min could of made a huge difference. Then it came time to have the baby. She didn't respect our wishes, pushed the birth because she didn't want to stay at the hospital. Actually Left during the birth for a while because it was progressing slow and commented she wanted to be out of there in time for dinner to the staff. I have a whole lists of issues now when switching away from her she is charging me to release my file to a new OBGYN. As I said runaway fast go see anyone else.

I gave her one star because of her assistant which we liked.

I have never met an OB?GYN that I was comfortable with until Dr. Kaplan. I absolutley Love, Love, Love her and all of the girls in her office. I have three children but she only delivered my last son. My experience with OB/GYN's were all sour until her and if I can help it I will never switch. She is informative and patient and she never makes you feel like shes too busy to answer your concerns. I recommend her to anybody looking for a GOOD Dr...

Dr. Kaplan is extremely intelligent, compassionate and caring. She is the best GYN I have ever had. I am also very pleased with her right hand person, Jennifer. The care there is outstanding and the staff is very helpful and always so friendly. Everyone treats you with kindness and respect. You feel like family when you are there. The office is just beautiful, and the entire group is top notch all the way. Thank you all for your excellent care. I recommend you highly to everyone I know.

I had searched many years for an OB physican that I was comfortable with. Dr. Kaplan is an excellent clinician. She is kind and a great listener. Discussing anything with her is like talking to your best friend. Her right hand woman Jen is great too. They are an excellant team.
