Meet David Kaplan, MD, MPH/MSPH

Working with adolescents couldn't be more fun. I strive to provide the best care for my patients. I believe in treating the person as a whole, taking every aspect of a patient's physical and emotional health into consideration during diagnosis and treatment.

Get to know his background

I am interested in seeing adolescents with complex physical and emotional problems. Many of the teens I see have been out of school for a number of weeks because of poorly controlled symptoms such as overwhelming fatigue, dizziness, headaches, abdominal pain, nausea/vomiting, POTS and other chronic symptoms.
