I endorse this doctor. I have worked closely with Dr. Kaplan for several years. He is a highly motivated clinician, extremely bright and creative and takes excellent care of his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Kaplan to anyone who is having hand, elbow or shoulder problems.
Dr. Thomas D. Kaplan is a well-respected hand surgeon and he is actively involved in the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. He has a successful practice and dedicates his time to studying new treatments for hand conditions and teaching. I recommend him highly.
