very pleased with Dr. Kaplan

July 01, 2014

Dr. Kaplan did a great job of showing me the results of the CT scan and made reviewing the scan easily understandable for me. Excellent doctor!

June 26, 2014

I really appreciated his insight. Although at first he may come off as stern and unfriendly he quickly showed empathy, humor, and concern for me. I was really quite impressed and felt comfortable talking candidly about my health. He very much involved me in the conversation about what next steps were etc. Great doc!

May 22, 2014

this was my first visit with Dr. Kaplan after having one Dr. for over 40 yrs. I was very pressed that he had read medical file & was already familiar with all my recent test. He knew my issues & was prepared to discuss them.

May 08, 2014

Dr. Kaplan was excellent. He admitted that he didn't know a lot about the condition I have, but he found the necessary information, gave me the proper referral, and the treatment he did put me on turned out to be spot on, according to the specialist that I saw the next day.

May 07, 2014

good

April 08, 2014

Dr Kaplan was great, I would definitely recommend him to other patients.

April 07, 2014

It was not the best experience I have had. Things were left up in the air basically and I had to leave for a conference. Now, things are very bad and I must return to the clinic for an emergency visit which will be expensive and I'm worried about losing my finger.

April 07, 2014

Dr. Kaplan took care to explain several misapprehensions I had. I felt very good about things when I left the exam room.

April 05, 2014

I already tell anyone who wants to listen to me talk about Dr. Kaplan and how lucky I am to have such an amazing Doctor with a great bedside manner who is easy to talk to and really listens.

April 04, 2014

I had an excellent discussion with Dr. Kaplan about my condition and he seemed quite informed on my visits to the Huntsman Cancer Hospital.

March 27, 2014

Dr. Kaplan was very courteous and knowledgeable.

March 11, 2014

Dr. Kaplan wrote a prescription for me that i was paying 4 times as much over the counter, very helpful!!

March 01, 2014

I truly felt cared for, I was able to leave with every question I had, answered. Very helpful and courteous.

February 26, 2014

Doctor Kaplan was professional and courteous. He asked deep probing questions to understand my symptoms and any possible causes. He thoroughly explained his diagnosis and went out of his way to keep me informed with treatment and follow up options. I felt a true partnership in my care.

February 24, 2014

I have recommended dr. Kaplan many times

February 24, 2014

Neither the doctor or I are entirelyl sure about what to do about my situation. He involved me in the discussion as to what to do. As I write this, I'm several days along and the treatment he suggested seems to be working. I'm very pleased.

February 07, 2014

Doctor Kaplan is very attentive and takes the time to listen to me and my concerns.

January 28, 2014

good

January 16, 2014

zone of the best Dr. visits I have ever had due the quality of Dr. Kaplan, Nurse Dee, the receptionist, and the lab staff.

January 04, 2014

Dr Kaplan was calm, down to earth, very upfront about any treatment concerns I had and realistic about those treatment plans...

December 23, 2013

Dr. Kaplan has helped me with my thyroid and high triglycerides, but also he takes an interest in problems that women my age may experience, such as bone density and vaccinations that I should have.

December 22, 2013

Dr Kaplan is a fantastic physician, he is a true asset to the University. He listens and made sure I felt my concerns were addressed.

December 11, 2013

Please don't assume you know more about my health and how my body feels than I do. Please take more time to be more thorough.

December 02, 2013

I felt that Dr. Kaplan treated me like a whole person instead of a group of symptoms.

December 01, 2013

Dr. Kaplan is one of those highly professional doctors, who inspire confidence; very logical and attentive to the "whole health" of the patient and not only regarding the specific areas he is an specialist. It is very refreshing to go to an institution that hire doctors, that view the patient as a human, and not as "one more task", because of the time pressures on him/her.

November 25, 2013

good

November 18, 2013

I just wish my Dr. would have spent a bit more time talking to me about my cold (how long should I expect the cough to last, etc.)

November 14, 2013

Professional, friendly, approachable.

November 13, 2013

Dr. Kaplan is in the top 3 best doctors I have ever had! I constantly recommend him to friends, co-workers and family.

November 12, 2013

My wife and I were very impressed with Dr. Kaplan and look forward to working with him.

November 08, 2013

I had such an amazing experience! I had emailed about my concerns prior to my appointment on MyChart and we were able to address those at the visit. He actually thanked me for that so he could be prepared for my visit and address exactly what I wanted/needed to! And again, he gave me so much hope that 1. Im not the only one with my concerns/issue 2. that there is hope for a recovery but mostly made me feel like a person and not just a patient!!

October 29, 2013

only one problem with this visit, there was a misunderstanding about my thyroid meds, Doctor needs to be a bit more careful. But all is well.

October 28, 2013

Question 10. I have just started seeing the doctor. He appears very knowledgeable, but it takes time to develop full confidence.

October 21, 2013

Doctor Kapplan always takes to the time to talk to me about any concerns I have and answers any questions that I have. He always explains things well to me about problems as well.

October 14, 2013

My husband and I were really concerned about my visit. The provider took time to explain everything. We felt like we were at the end of our rope when we came in and hope was restored. It felt great to have someone give us a plan. He also was going to ask another MD he knew about some medication I needed to be on and he actually emailed back that night. It was able to put our worries to rest.

October 09, 2013

Dr Kaplan was personable and attentive. I was pleased that he seemed to have new knowledge about various medical studies. I was disappointed that there is no new info. about preventing migraines, but, this is obviously not Dr. Kaplan's fault!

October 02, 2013

Dr. Kaplan practically had me wanting to hug him at the end of our interaction. Very good man and doctor!

October 01, 2013

Dr. Kaplan IS THE BEST!!!!!

September 27, 2013

This was my first appointment. My situation is very complicated and Dr. Kaplan hit the ground running. He listened to my concerns and has immediately adjusted to my needs and concerns. He's terrific and I recommend him to everyone! In fact, all the members of my immediate family are switching to him. It's so wonderful to have a doctor that listens and does everything he can to help!

September 24, 2013

I am very appreciative of Dr Kaplan and the time he spends listening and discussing. I always leave his office feeling hopeful and more knowledgeable about my issues. I trust him completely.

September 23, 2013

Dr. Kaplan was very patient with me and carefully assessed my problems

September 20, 2013

Very happy that Dr. Kaplan came into my life

September 10, 2013

I felt very comfortable with this care provider in discussing my health issues and concerns.

September 07, 2013

No nonsense.

September 03, 2013

Dr. Kaplan was very informative, however, I would have liked to have had specific printed information regarding the next steps in addition to the verbal information we talked about. We went through the meds quickly and in looking through the online lists of the meds there were a few midtakes and I will be needing refills of some of them from the other clinic.

September 03, 2013

I found Dr. Kaplan to be fully competent.

August 23, 2013

I plan on recommending Dr Kaplan to my brother. Dr. Kaplan is the best.

August 17, 2013

I really liked the time that Dr. Kaplan took with me and his honesty.

August 12, 2013

Dr Kaplan has a very pleasant professional bedside manner.

August 12, 2013

Dr. Kaplan was extraordinarily patient with all the questions and topics I had. Very prompt email replies, which was very convenient.

August 08, 2013

Was up front about his concerns for my health and what I could do about it. He has a easy way of making you feel comfortable. I would recommend him to friends.

August 06, 2013

Dr. Kaplan was great! I will definitely be back.

August 06, 2013

They make me feel like a VIP.very important person

July 29, 2013

Dr. Kaplan impressed both my husband and me with his knowledge, professionalism and his concern for the well-being of his patients.

July 16, 2013

I have had 30 different doctors in the past 4 years and spent over 3 months in hospitals. I have never had a Doctor make me feel better than Dr. Kaplan. Ever.

July 13, 2013

Dr. Kaplan was very kind and caring. He really helped me.

July 02, 2013

Dr. Kaplan was most condescending about my concerns. I ended the day in an urgent care center with an acute problem he could have easily diagnosed. Dr. Kaplan needs to learn that patients are individuals, not formulas. I could have gotten much better care from WebMD.

July 01, 2013

I have not felt such confidence in nor comfort from a medical doctor and his staff so completely in the entirety of the 18 years I have been dealing with these symptoms. Not this fully ever...and this was in one visit.

June 27, 2013

Dr. Kaplan is good beyond belief. He listens well, taking in the whole story, before responding. He puts me at ease, and explains issues in ways that I can understand, without me having the feeling that he is talking down to me. His communications skills are outstanding. His interaction on all levels made me feel very comfortable. Its unusual to see his patience in an m.d. so young, in my opinion.

June 24, 2013

My regular care provider was not available and the substitute care provider was very gracious took time from his patients to address my problems. I appreciated his willingness to see me.

June 18, 2013

I appreciated that Dr. Kaplan listened to my concerns and possible explanations for my symptoms. It was clear that his goal was finding long-term solutions.

May 28, 2013

Dr. Kaplan has excellent bedside manners. His kind and one of the few that talks about nutrition with his patients.

May 28, 2013

Great overall experience. very happy

May 21, 2013

For a Doctor, David had very very good people skills, he has an easy going personality, with a refreshing dose of common sense. It was a pleasure seeing him . Thanks Doc

May 08, 2013

Dr Kaplan was excellent. I would definitely recommend him.

April 15, 2013

Dr. Kaplan is always so happy and seems to LOvE his job. He always has a smile and a greeting for you when he enters the room. He is very patient with lots of questions and is extremely knowledgeable and up front about everything!

April 02, 2013

Dr. Kaplin had already read through a mountain of records and was already familiar with all my Many,many serious problems. He said I already know you I just didn't know what you looked like... GREAT! He looked through the papers that I brought that I received in the mail. But he knew most everything that I listed. I asked him to be honest with me about my life expectancy and what his feelings were. He was so helpful. So kind and understanding. First Doc that told me the truth about what I was facing. I appreciatied it so much and felt that I went away with a full understanding of what I was facing. What an amazing doctor. Would recommend him to EVERYONE!

April 02, 2013

Dr Kaplin is outstanding!

April 01, 2013

Dr. Kaplan was excellent and very thorough. I am a previous patient at the Clinic and he research my files with two doctors to ensure he was up to speed on my past medical experiences. After I had completed my blood tests and shots, I walked by his office and asked a few more questions. He was very willing to talk with me about concerns I had forgotten to mention in our original meeting. I found his overall approach to be very refreshing and especially appreciate his willingness to spend as much time with me as I needed during the visit.

March 25, 2013

Dr. Kaplan discussed with me tests and blood work that I needed to have done and when. He diagnosed a problem for me and provided me prescription for it. He reads my file and I feel very confident that he has my very best interest in mind. A great doctor with exceptional skills.

March 18, 2013

This visit included a family conference which was fundamental. My doc is a great guy and top notch doc..

March 12, 2013

Outstanding listener and explainer.

February 25, 2013

Dr. Kaplan is a great doctor. He's very thorough and caring.

February 18, 2013

He was a textbook expert who put into practice everything many of us human beings always wished for but usually could not find. He was kind. Informed, and way beyond my expectations as my "substitute" doctor, and he stayed with me during a long process, going in and out but letting me know why a delay.j

February 12, 2013

First time I have met Dr. Kaplan, he was professional. personable and knowledgable. Made a plan of care that made sense.

February 11, 2013

Dr. Kaplan is very kind and thoughtful.

February 04, 2013

I enjoyed meeting Dr. David Kaplan. He is competent, thorough, and I like his conservative approach. And the nurse that assisted me before meeting with Dr. Kaplan was welcoming and I felt comfortable with her as well. I really like that they set me up with an online account right there in the exam room. I commend them getting all patients using an online vehicle for communicating right away!

January 29, 2013

I couldn't be more impressed with Dr. Kaplan. Even for a visit like this where I had a number of concerns, he never makes me feel rushed or like he has someone more important waiting. He is very kind but has a direct communication style that I truly appreciate. I trust his judgment absolutely and I take his advice to heart.

January 29, 2013

Dr Kaplan was very professional and instilled confidence as we went through the exam process and in giving me his assessment and instructions

January 29, 2013

Doc and staff did fine. It was my first visit. Takes a while before I have confidence in the quality of care, but no negatives on the first visit.

January 24, 2013

I am considering transferring my primary care to Dr. Kaplan.

January 11, 2013

I love that Dr. Kaplan provides me information on the literature and current recommendations for treatment regarding my primary complaint. When there are options, he provides me with risks/benefits of each, and allows me to take an active role in decision making about treatment. As an ICU nurse, I have some baseline medical knowledge, and I feel like Dr. Kaplan recognizes that and discusses my treatment options with me as someone who can make an intelligent decision about their own care. I saw him last summer for something unrelated, and he followed up with me about that condition as well.

January 10, 2013

I am getting older so I don't know what is aging and what I need a doctor's care for?

January 07, 2013

Dr. Kaplan is outstanding. Very well-informed and empathetic

December 20, 2012

I like Dr. Kaplan because he listens and shows concern when appropriate. He is thorough.

December 13, 2012

Dr. Kaplan was excellent. I love the way he cared for my mom and spoke frankly to me about everything.

December 12, 2012

My mom back in California wished the Doctors offices there was like my experience from my conversation with her

December 10, 2012

Although I live in Malad, Idaho, I choose to go to the Madsen Clinic because I feel I am treated so well.

November 20, 2012

Great staff

November 19, 2012

I'm so happy that I found Dr. Kaplan! He's kind, thorough, informative and always takes a minute to clearly explain my diagnosis and treatment options.

November 14, 2012

I have chosen Dr. Kaplan as my primary care giver. He was very attentive to my description of my concerns. I have confidence in his skills.

November 05, 2012

Dr. Kaplan is wonderful. Has read my notes from other Drs. and is up on what's going on with my body. Listens to my concerns and understands and agrees with my belief in the mind body connection. A must for me to be on the same page with mind/body.

October 23, 2012

I've already recommended him to two friends who are looking for doctors. I really appreciate his thoroughness.

October 08, 2012

Everything was first rate!

October 08, 2012

Already referred one of my friends to Dr. Kaplan.

October 08, 2012

Dr. Kaplan was very thorough and kind. He made me feel as if I was the only person in the clinic that day!

October 05, 2012

It is encouraging to have talented Doctors like David Kaplan in the field when there are other fields which are more highly compensated. Thank you for giving us your talents.

October 05, 2012

This was an initial appointment so it will take a few more encounters to have enough information to make a firm impression.

October 04, 2012

Never before have I been treated with so much care and concern as a WHOLE person. He is very skilled at and willing to find the problem rather than just treat the symptoms. His advise and treatment has been easy to understand and follow, and has improved the quality of my life.

September 18, 2012

I had first met Dr. Kaplan about a year ago. I was new to Utah; he was in his residency. His professional manner and "art of healing" approachability were a pleasant surprise for me. It is rare in MDs (my experience over many decades) and very rare in someone his age. I feel complete confidence in David.

September 14, 2012

Dr. Kaplan was very understanding, listened to my concerns and never tried to push my care in any direction without explaining his rationale. He seemed very knowledgeable, but did not talk "over my head". I will definitely see him again, and will refer him to all my friends who are looking for primary care physicians. I had not found a primary care MD that I would continue to see until now.

September 11, 2012

Dr. Kaplan explained everything to me and gave me as much time as I needed to answer questions. Also, is soooo knowledgeable about all my conditions..Thanks so much..

September 04, 2012

I recommended him to a friend. He is knowledgeable and evidence based. He explains things well.

September 03, 2012

My wife and I were extremely impressed with Dr. Kaplan.

August 24, 2012

Dr. Kaplan is great. He seems genuinely interested in my well-being. Moreover, he is highly knowledgeable. This combined with his easy-going manner make him a very good doctor.

August 17, 2012

Dr. Kaplan did an amazing job making me feel at ease, explained in detail the approach he was taking for my care -- made sure at-least 3x I felt okay with the plan and he asked me to keep him updated post appointment. He even created a plan with me in-case I wouldn't be able to get a hold of him. Leaving the office -- i felt more educated about my condition and at ease as well as a plan for my care.

August 06, 2012

Dr. Kaplan is the sole reason why I came to Madsen Internal Medicine.

July 31, 2012

listened to my concerns offered solution

July 25, 2012

Very impressed with care

July 18, 2012

This was the second time I'd seen Dr. Kaplan and I am just loving him! He never makes me feel rushed and seems genuinely concerned with my issues.

July 17, 2012

This was a work in appointment = and so much appreciated.

July 16, 2012

We changed doctors to Dr. Kaplan because he is very caring and knowledgeable

July 09, 2012

Dr. Kaplan is very personable and concerned, and provides excellent patient care

July 02, 2012

Doc Kaplan seems like a good guy

July 02, 2012

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Kaplan. He's kind, listens to all of my concerns, explains things to me, and never makes me feel rushed.

June 30, 2012

For a first visit it was fine

June 29, 2012

Dr Kaplan is one of those 'gems' in the medical field.

June 29, 2012

I feel very comfortable with my care provider

June 15, 2012

Dr. Kaplan was excellent. As a registered nurse, I am probably a bit demanding in terms of wanting to understand what the physician is considering related to my problems. I felt that Dr. Kaplan addressed my concerns and spoke to me at a level knowing I have a decent baseline of medical knowledge. Even if I may have asked some ridiculous questions, he answered them thoroughly and thoughtfully without ever seeming annoyed or in a hurry. Most importantly, I felt like he established a very good line of communication.

June 13, 2012

He was so friendly and nice - I called him David. Later, my son-in-law MD said I should always refer to Dr's by thier title. I think David Kaplan is an excellent Dr.

May 09, 2012

Great experience

May 07, 2012

Dr Kaplan was very courtious with me, he answered all question's in reference to my ongoing care.

May 04, 2012

I am very satisfied with the time Dr. Kaplan spent with me.

April 18, 2012

Dr. Kaplan was great. I wasn't sure if he was going to give me a printout with instructions, so I had to ask. He obliged without hesitation. I had a medical student, I believe his name was Rob (?) who participated in all expects of my visit. He was really great too! I liked that both Dr. Kaplan and the student made me feel comfortable enough that I could make silly jokes/comments about my condition. It helped ease my nerves to be able to laugh and not feel stupid.

April 06, 2012

The doctor gave me detailed explanation about my follow up.

April 04, 2012

Dr seemed to agree with my wife about weather I should drive or not as far as my memory when I have very little memory loss if any at all.
