Chiropractic is the third largest primary health care profession in the western world and works on the principle that a good spinal alignment and function is necessary for better health and well-being. Chiropractors provide services for the detection, correction, and prevention of spinal joint dysfunctions, and their effects on the nervous system and the body.

    I saw Dr Kaplan for over a year and he provided exceptional care. He was honest and genuinely cared about getting me out of pain on my first visit with him.The VA recently switched me to another Chiropractic office against my request to stay with Dr Kaplan. The new Chirpractic office performed a battery of tests (no actual therapy performed) and gave me another appointment to return with the results. I walked into this new office with 5/10 pain and walked out in 10/10 pain unable to walk. I felt like I had experienced a high pitched time share condominium situation. It was awful. I don’t need a big fancy office with sales tactics and lack of genuine compassion.I am going to fight for the right to go back to Dr Kaplan’s office in order to see a doctor who genuinely cares about his patients.Dr Kaplan is exceptional and if I could give him 10 stars I would certainly do so.

    Great Staff, easy to get into quickly, the doctor will make time for all of your questions, and you can tell he is really invested in his patients. My situation described below.I was unable to walk for a day and a half. I walked into this office, and by the time I left I was walking. I was still in some pain and not able to stand upright. He scheduled me for the next day, and when I left after my second appointment I was walking upright and pain was minimal. I saw him a few more time, and within 1.5 weeks I was almost entirely pain free and walking. Great doctor, I highly recommend them.

    MIRACLE WORKER!! I've had severe hip pain for 3 months. I've tried acupuncture, physical therapy, 5 different chiropractors, stretching, yoga, went to the ER, you name it I did it. I'm 46 years old and was using a Walker. I pretty much gave up hope. I was then recommended to Dr. Kaplan. With 1 treatment I was 60 % better! I just had my 2nd treatment today and I am almost pain free!! I can't say enough or how thankful I am for Dr. Kaplan. He, unlike every other person I went to, actually knows what he is doing. I was told by 1 doctor that I would probably have to give up a sport I love to play. Dr. Kaplan said I would be able to play within the week. I had my doubts because I had been let down by every other "doctor",but I am so impressed by Dr. Kaplan and sooo glad I found him. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLYRECOMMENDED!! Thank you so very much!
