    Dr Tapia has been treating my son for obesity. He is patient with us, really talks to him, and gives him great advice with an easy to implement plan. We are focused on helping my son maintain his weight until he hits is growth spike in the next few years. Great advice is provided and doesn't require him switching to 'diet' food as this is not realistic for a 14 year old! Great doctor and recommend him for children as well as adults!
