What People Say About Dr. Paul Tapia, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Today Dr.Tapia was honest with me. He cares for his patients and is there to help us with our issues. He pulls no punches.His moral support is genuine. He tells the truth even if we don't want to hear it. I wish I could afford the bariatric surgery,however I can't, wrong insurance. Working to get the weight off, gives motivation and I think I'll appreciate the effort more. Its just going to be harder for me. If you can handle the truth and want to lose weight then hes your Dr.

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!
