Finding Dr. John Tapp was the best thing I could have done. Been with him for over 15 years. My previous Doctor had an accident and quit practicing. My wife is a patient with this same group and she managed to get me set up with Dr. Tapp. He has followed me through two Strokes and a Heart Ablation and always been the best of care. Dr. Tapp spends as much time as needed to assist. His Staff are the Greatest and the best of all, I have never had a delay in my appointment. Always in and out on time

I'm 38. I've been seeing Dr. Tapp since my early twenties. I can honestly say not once has he or his team let me down. He has taken the best of care of me and seen me at my worst. He's thorough & a wonderful listener. He's never rushed me. He takes time to explain my medications and any issues I've had. His team is equally amazing. Anise and Katy are always kind and prompt. When I call they either answer immediately or return my call within the same day. I have referred friends and family

Dr. Tapp is a outstanding physician. He is thorough in the professional discharge of his responsibilities, yet, he communicates genuine concern, focused attention and understandable explanations. I would (and have), without reservation, recommend him to others.

We first went to Dr. Tapp on the recommendation of someone. The recommendation was well founded. Between Dr. Tapp and his PA, Nathan Smith, a dangerous condition was identified with my wife's heart. Action was taken immediately and she is here today because of the caring service offered by Dr. Tapp and his staff.
