When traditional medicine isn't helping or has failed and you are out of options getting help or treatment for chronic pain, then the Kaplan Center specialists should be on your short list of those to see to help find an answer. Kaplan Center doctors and supporting staff work using a team approach to help provide multiple avenues of analysis, treatment and relief.
Unlike typical doctors, these caring professionals will begin with a complete re-review of your history and current condition. Then they will look for the diseases and conditions that most doctors never consider that can cause or contribute to your chronic pain, poor overall health and decreased functionality. In treating you they will use every protocol or therapy available to reduce the pain, and get your body functioning the way it should be.
Typical one-on-one doctor appointments are three to four times longer than your typical doctor visit and will include reviewing of test results, physical exam, medications, supplements, treatment plan, any questions you may have and anything else in your life that could be contributing to your physical or mental health and condition. If you need to see other specialists, they will send to those they know and trust (typically the top specialists available no matter where they are).
I've been trying to find a solution to my chronic pain for over 24 years, two surgeries, well over 50 doctors and specialists and all the things that go with it. I may never be pain free, but my overall health has never been better - taking less medication, body is functioning and feeling better and even experiencing some weight loss.
If you want to know more about the Kaplan Center approach and methodology read Dr. Kaplan's book - I did.
If only I had known about the Kaplan Center 24 years ago when all of this started for me.
I came to the Kaplan Center when we couldn't find answers to a sudden health problem I was having. They spent the time to listen and think carefully about my issues and came up with a thoughtful and careful solution for me. They also have many services under one roof, and their staff is professional and caring. I highly recommend Kaplan Center.
The Kaplan Center is hands down the best physician's office I have been to. From the receptionists to the medical techs to the nurses to the physicians, everyone is very knowledgeable and very caring. They treat you like a person versus just another appointment to get in and get out. After years of living with a medical problem and having other doctors ignore it, Dr. Erika LeBaron took me seriously, ran tests, diagnosed my problem and is working with me to solve it and optimize my health.
I became a patient of the Kaplan Center in 2012. At that time, I was spending most days in bed and in significant pain. Dr. Kaplan did an extremely thorough intake exam and ordered a myriad of tests. The results showed a number of different issues for which Dr. Kaplan developed a systematic treatment plan. My health continues to improve dramatically and still Dr. Kaplan continues his search for new and better treatments for his chronically ill patients. I have never had anyone work so hard to improve the quality of my life. The entire office embraces the patient and genuinely cares about improved health.
The caring professionals at the Kaplan Center take time to listen and understand the patient's concerns and provide a wide range of treatments that take the whole person into account.
