Dr. Tapia is old school. He knows his stuff ! He is a funny guy and makes you feel comfortable with what he does. Before he does any procedure he goes over it and tells you what is going on before it happens. I have had to wait a little while longer than I cared to before but I know that things happen. Besides that the wait time isn't long (normally) and he is a all around good Dr. even the staff has always been helpful.

I arrived 20 minutes early for my appointment knowing I needed to fill out new patient paperwork. That was complete before my appointment time. Even with that, I was in this office for 2 hours for a routine office visit. Dr. Tapia does not have good bedside manner and did not listen to me when I told him things about my history or my body cycles. Heard him being condescending to another patient through the paper-thin walls as well- she left crying. Will not be returning to this office.
