A Note From Dr. Thapar

“I believe the relationship between a doctor and patient is very special. It requires trust on both sides. Confidentiality is of utmost importance and will always be strictly adhered to. The highest quality care is only possible when a physician and patient establish a relationship as individuals and then carry on frank and open discussions. The door is always open for you and your concerns, comments, or even criticism. Your opinion concerning the care you receive in our office is greatly appreciated. Medicine is a service profession. I am in medical practice to serve you.”
