Dr. Tapia is patient-focused and enjoys improving the quality of his patients’ lives. He has appeared in local newspapers and on television shows to spread the word about the benefits of interventional pain management, including laser spine and spinal cord stimulation (watch the video below) as a better alternative than opioid painkillers. He is very highly rated by patients on doctor review sites.
One patient writes: “Dr. Tapia is always considerate and professional. His staff is excellent: lots of smiles (that goes a long way!) and privacy is assured. Dr. Tapia and staff are obviously very careful and conscientious about their jobs: they do the right thing for me while carefully complying with all paperwork, testing, etc. … I’ve spoken to other patients in the waiting room (short wait times!) and no one has ever said anything negative about this office or about Dr. Tapia.”
Patient J.J. writes: “Great staff, Super friendly. Dr. Tapia is a great doctor. He cares! Glad I found him. I would recommend him and his team to anyone.”
Patient C.W. left this review: “Dr. Tapia is definitely in the top 5% of doctors with a warm bedside manner. He takes the time to speak with you and actually cares about his patients. Since my injury I have seen about six different doctors due to insurance changes and I found that Dr. Tapia is definitely a doctor that is worth the wait to see. [He] will actually listen to your questions and actually give you an answer that you can understand. I highly recommend Dr. Tapia.”
