Just a reminder of our Covid control measures!

In our efforts to be as cautious as possible, we have made several changes in our office as outlined below. These changes are our best effort to keep everyone as safe as possible, our staff and your families included. We know these are difficult times, please be understanding as we make changes to keep our office a safe place to visit.

  • Masks are REQUIRED in the building… the applies to everyone over the age of 2 years old 
  • All patients are waiting in their cars until they are met at the door and taken directly to a room.
  • All toys have been removed from the building (this makes us sad but is necessary right now), and stickers have been removed from the rooms.
  • We are offering tele-health visits for several different concerns. If you would prefer to be seen by tele-health, please call us and we will discuss if this is an option to evaluate your concern.
  • We have extensive cleaning procedures in place between each patient.
  • We are screening Everyone who walks into the building each day for symptoms.

Stay safe!

What our patients say about us

  • "Both of my children were patients of TAPAC, and I can only say Very Good Things about all the services offered. Even when my kids were older, they chose to continue to see Dr. Sara Mulder through college, and I'm so grateful for her care of their physical, mental, and emotional needs during this time of growth. Thank you to all of you who make up the amazing team that is TAPAC."
    Carla W.
  • "I really appreciate the trouble they go through to keep the kids safe during this whole covid thing. Separate docs for healthy kids vs sick. Nice front desk staff. have a doc that specializes in asthma."
  • "We have had nothing but great experiences here at TAPAC. This practice is equipped with very knowledgeable clinical staff and very friendly administrative staff.
