This Dr. goes above and beyond just medical care. He never rushes through your appointment, he truly cares about his patients. The staff are a wonderful group of caring people. I tell everyone that asks about this Dr. Most hate to go to a Dr. appointment, but my appointments, even when I have been very sick have always made me feel better. Mainly because I know, they really CARE.

Can not recommend Dr. Tapp highly enough to those we come in contact with. He sees both of us, as well as oversees the care of our grown children that we have transferred to his care after outgrowing their pediatrician’s services. He is kind, easy to talk to, assumes the best, is a wonderful advocate, and manages referrals to other specialties (or labs/ testing) in a timely manner with great follow through and communication. His staff is a great asset: very supportive, professional, and kind.

Dr. Tapp is my primary physician. I have been going to him for about 10 years and have always been very pleased with his care. He listens carefully, and I never feel hurried. While it may seem like minor thing, I appreciate the fact that he always has a pleasant and positive attitude. I have complete confidence in his ability to see after my health.
