Dr. Taryn V. Tapia's Ratings
This review is NOT regarding Dr. Tapia's competence as doctor, but rather her office's billing practices and their incompetence in that regard: In February of 2013, I went in for an eye exam, and at the end of the exam, I was charged the usual $40 as a contact lens fitting fee. I paid this charge using my credit card and thought that was that. Then this month (September 2013), I received a bill in the mail, stating that I owe this $40 fee, which again I already paid. I emailed Dr. Tapia's office my credit card bill, showing that I already paid this charge in February after my exam, yet they refused to accept this proof of payment. I was and still remain upset and angry, but to avoid any conflict, I decided to pay the $40 charge once again. It's sad to say, but the staff at Eyemedics clearly cannot keep track of the office's finances and they are obviously incompetent to send me a bill SEVEN months later FOR A CHARGE I ALREADY PAID! NOT RECOMMEND AND STAY AWAY FROM EYEMEDICS!

AND lastly, the office is very well kept and clean! Thank you Dr. Tapia for always caring about me and all your patients! GREAT DOCTOR. GOD BLESS YOU!!
I visited her office for the annual check up. She is great because she explained well, provided me opportunities a couple of times to ask any questions and answered enough. She did not hurry examination at all. Although I was called up 15 minutes later than the appointment, it was okay to me. She does not speak Japanese, but I would like to definitely recommend any Japanese people to her office. No worries.
