I have seen Dr. Tarpy for the last 6 years. He is one of the kindest, most qualified doctors I know. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He is one of the best doctors that I have ever had. I always looked forward to visits with him. I believe his diagnoses were always on point. He was also very conservative in his treatment which I value highly. He is a doctor who monitors a situation before recommending any type of surgery. He just one of those doctors that you just love.
For two years I suffered with sinus trouble and went to several different doctors who could never give me any relief. I went to Dr.Tarpy and he seemed to care what I had to say and my condition. He was the only doctor who suggested the proper treatment to give me relief and be able to breath.
