Dr. Caplan is a skilled, committed, and compassionate physician who incorporates all aspects of general Gynecology and Obstetrics, including surgical and non-surgical procedures. She believes it is imperative to focus on caring for all phases of a woman’s Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) needs.

Dr. Caplan moved to Orlando with her parents, older brother, and identical twin sister (also a physician in Central Brevard) from Toronto, Canada when she was eight. Ever since the fourth grade, Dr. Caplan knew she wanted to become a physician who “delivers babies.”

After moving from Canada, Dr. Caplan graduated from Oviedo High School and the University of Central Florida, where she received her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology. She then attended Nova Southeastern in Fort Lauderdale, where she earned her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and served a five-year residency at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. During her residency Dr. Caplan was the OB/GYN Chief Resident. Shortly after completing her residency, she earned her board certification from the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Caplan joined Health First Physicians in July 2001 and is an active member of the Health First’s Cape Canaveral Hospital Medical staff, serving as Chairman of multiple committees.

Her husband, David serves as Chairman of the Health First Foundation’s Golf Classic Tournament. They live on Merritt Island and enjoy their pets– three dogs -Sammy, Max, Bogie and cat, Putter. In her free time, she enjoys quilting, cruising and golfing with David.
