    Dr. Douglas Kaplan joined St. Luke's Neurology Associates in January 2015.

    With over 20 years of experience as a neurologist in Oklahoma City, Dr. Kaplan is excited to join the brand new St. Luke's Neurology Associates. He is looking forward to joining the St. Luke's family and growing his practice as well as the neurology clinic. He has been in private practice for a number of years and he is looking forward to connecting with patients, colleagues and fellow practitioners.

    The field of neurology is constantly evolving and this is what Dr. Kaplan loves about being a neurologist. He enjoys learning the latest developments in neurology and is a devoted student to his field of study. He provides personalized care plans for patients based on their specific needs and goals.

    One piece of medical advice Dr. Kaplan would give his patients is simple: live a healthy lifestyle. He reminds his patients that a healthy lifestyle includes important components such as diet, fitness, emotional well-being and stress management. If you can manage these lifestyle components, patient outcomes are typically better.

    While Dr. Kaplan, his wife and three children are new to Duluth, they are enjoying everything the city has to offer. He says Duluth is a beautiful area and reminds him of his childhood in Chicago on Lake Michigan. He affectionately calls himself a "Great Lakes Boy" and is looking forward to being near Lake Superior. In his free time, he and his family like hiking with their dogs and participating in a variety of lake activities such as canoeing. His Duluth bucket list includes ice fishing.
