A few things here about Dr. Kaplan....1) He is unprofessional and touched me very inappropriately.... During my consultation, he was 'examining' the curves of my body to see what size implant would be best....proceeded to 'graze' my bum repeatedly as I moved away & made comments such as, yes, this will look beautiful, you will have it all, very nice curves" I had my male friend with me & even he was puzzled, but reassured me that it was probably just 'what he does' & to not think so much about it & shake it off. I considered his opinion & I tried not to take it into consideration...bad idea.....I admit I should have followed my gut on this one, & truly regret that I did not.
After some thought & letting my male friend talk me into it (of course he wanted me to get them) I went back and paid in full (1/2 cash, 1/2 credit) for a breast augmentation less than 2 weeks before my scheduled surgery. I signed NO paperwork whatsoever except for the page where it says I gave them my money....NO paperwork about pre and post surgery preparation, Did not sign the CONSENT for breast augmentation, authorization for him & his physicians to perform the surgery, NO informed consent, procedure for treatment....I signed NOTHING except for the money paper.
Go figure. He didn't even tell me to read it....just told me to stop smoking (which I don't anyway) & to stop taking vitamins. That was all. I should have known right then and there, that there was something wrong with this situation. But I was just too excited for my new additions. I let this blind me & wish I saw the 'writing on the wall,' but even then it was too late. He had my money.
About 6 days before, I had to take my dog to the vet & he was very sick & needed surgery & I could not afford both. I begged, cried and pleaded with Dr. Kaplan to refund the money so I can pay for his surgery and he refused. He then agreed to give me back half of the money, $2,000, and kept the other half of $2,000 CASH for himself, no service rendered!!
So now he has $2,000 of my hard earned money, for nothing! But he says its for ordering the implants (saline) and booking the other doctor, which he did in about 4 seconds right in front of me. I then proceeded to look online and he has many negative reviews I somehow did not see in the beginning, so I will not even consider going back to him if I ever decide to this again. He offered to reschedule my surgery, but for a rescheduling fee of $1,000 in addition to the money he was keeping of mine!!!
In closing, I feel he has no right to keep my money, being that I never signed any of the required paperwork to book and confirm the surgery. I know certain doctors have their policies, but I truly believe this was null & void, being that I never technically consented to the surgery. He still has $2,000 cash of my hard earned money, all of which is rightfully mine and it disgusts me to this day that he thinks he is able to get away with this.
Read up on this man....he has had multiple lawsuits against him and has had his license revoked. Don't want to see this happen to anyone else....Please ladies, DO NOT let this man touch you or steal your money!! I hope this helped your decision.
