Michelle Kaplan, MD
Michelle Kaplan, MD is a board-certified psychiatrist offering services to adult residents in New York. She has a vast array of clinical interests; however, her specializations are mood disorders, panic disorder and geriatric psychiatry. In her practice, her philosophy care is centered around the belief that all mental health issues are treatable, and clinicians owe it to their patients to provide the best possible care so they can live their lives unencumbered. To her, there is no greater achievement than witnessing her patients grow and improve.
Michelle’s interest in mental and behavioral health care stems from the enjoyment she finds in connecting with others and hearing their stories. As a medical student she would work after hours just to talk to her patients, many of whom were hospitalized for serious illnesses, and listen to their experiences. She considered this time spent with patients a great privilege. She was drawn to psychiatry where she could continue to actively listen and connect with patients. Michelle is also passionate about destigmatizing mental health issues and reducing barriers to mental health care.
Michelle is from a small town in the Catskill mountains of New York. She is fellowship trained and board certified in geriatric psychiatry and is particularly proud of her time spent working in a memory disorders clinic. Michelle says that the highlight of her career was the year she spent providing psychiatric home visits for homebound patients in New York City - an unforgettable experience.
