Dr. Murray Caplan, Pediatrician
Dr. Caplan has been a Board Certified Pediatrician for the last 30 years. He got his pediatric training at The University of Colorado, Duke Hospital, and the Indian Health Service. For 25 years he had his own successful pediatric practice in the suburbs of Denver Colorado. After closing that practice, he then worked on the Lakota Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, and on the Navajo reservation in Shiprock, New Mexico.
Dr. Caplan loves helping children and families with chronic health issues-Asthma, ADHD, Migraine Headaches, and correcting poor nutrition that leads to obesity and diabetes. Dr. Caplan also likes to work with the management and prevention of concussions in young people. He took extra time to educate himself in the diagnosis and management of sports head injuries in children and adolescents. He also has worked and studied extensively in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry--so that he could diagnose and manage common pediatric problems like Anxiety, Depression, ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Dr. Caplan enjoys helping patient's and their parents create asthma action plans so the patient spends much less time and money in the emergency room at 1 in the morning.
When not seeing patients Dr. Caplan enjoys playing tennis, riding his mountain bike, skiing the bump runs on the slopes of Colorado and Northern Arizona, or just hanging out with his wife and grandchildren. Dr. Caplan not only enjoys the wonderful patient population here in the Globe-Miami area, he also enjoys the wonderful teamwork of the doctors, physician assistants, and Nurses in the Family Practice Clinic here at CVRMC.
