I love Dr Tappan and his office staff, everyone is very nice and always welcoming. Dr Tappan is a very friendly person, highly knowledgeable, and has a great bedside manner. My 3 year old son loves going to see him, which I think is very important. They are very flexible with our family's needs and always have the best interest of the children in mind. I am so glad to have a great pediatrician in my area.
