There are always two receptionists in front taking patients; only have some concern the receptionists at front desk ask information (private) right where other patients can hear. Should be separated like lab area intake.

Dr Kaplan was an excellent doctor to talk to about my newborn's medical condition. He was patient, listened to our questions and answered everyone of them in simple easy to understand language and made us feel confident that we were doing the right thing for our child.

The doctor seemed convinced that we were there about bed wetting and that was our only concern, so he spent the bulk of the hour addressing that. However, I told him multiple times that bed wetting was not our primary concern. I felt as if he wasn't listening to us.
