"Dr. Kaplan and his kind staff are straight up amazing! He truly has the eye of an artist and it’s comforting to know he has such a great passion for what he does and how he does it! They all were so wonderful with answering all my annoying questions, flexible about helping me achieve a more youthful look that was in my price range without being condescending or obnoxious, and I can’t being to tell you how great they were about dealing with my high anxiety during the procedure! Really just a top notch stunning office my only complaint is that his faucet in the bathroom has a very strong flow so be warned you might get splashed with water while washing your hands ! ;) haha All kidding aside, I highly highly recommend this Dr and his team!"



"The first time I went to Dr. Kaplan was as a  Living Social "deal". I had wanted to try Botox and this was a way to test the waters, a small amount for a lesser price.  The office (both outer and inner) is extremely clean, decorated in a very earthy yet modern minimalist style.The front desk girl was very friendly and easy to talk to.I went in to see the Dr. and he was very professional. Asking questions and explaining what Botox can do. I got the 20 units I came in for. He offered more, stating 20 units might not be enough to achieve optimal results, but I was leery of doing too much (having never done this before)..........I decided to just stick with the 20 units. There was no hard sell on the Dr.’s part, which I appreciated.The results were great, he worked quickly and I could sense his confidence - which put me at ease. I was very relaxed in his chair. While you will not get the "warm fuzzies" from Dr. Kaplan you do get an expert who knows what he’s doing. We had nice conversation, he answered all questions and I felt very relaxed.I went back a few months later for Botox, this time getting a bit more. First time I just did the forehead area and the 11’s in between the brows. This time I did the same, but did the crows feet area too. I am very happy with the work he did and would recommend him in a heart beat.  I’ll be back in a few months for more Botox, and am considering Juvederm for lip enhancement."



"I was referred to Dr. Kaplan for a contracted scar in my lower abdomen due to an appendicitis eruption from years ago.  Thankfully Dr. Kaplan turned that ugly scar to a fine line and I could not be happier. The procedure was done in less than an hour and my recovery was painless. I was so pleased with his work that I even had some Botox done. I would highly recommend him."



"My son was involved in an accident at our house ,he cut his upper lip on a rock step on our patio. Dr. Kaplan was the plastic surgeon on call at valley hospital that night luck for us. He did a great job making a terrible situation have a good outcome. After receiving 6 stitches in his lip, now moths later my son has healed without any scar. I recommend him and his office."



"I have been seeing Dr. Kaplan since 2018. Dr. Kaplan has a very unique personality with a great sense of humor that immediately makes you feel welcomed and at ease. He always starts off by asking you what you’ll like to get done and then he  gives you an honest professional opinion based on what he sees and what can benefit you. I have gotten several procedures done with Dr. Kaplan and quite honestly he is the only doctor I trust with my face. Dr. Kaplan’s procedures and treatments on my face have been subtle with a rejuvenated glow! I always tell him "don’t make me look crazy" lol of course he never does! He knows exactly what I need to look freshened up. I totally recommend him! Also the staff (Elizabeth & Christina) are super sweet!"
