Dr. Tap has always called Houston home. Growing up locally in the Cypress Creek area, he then attended the University of Texas at Austin and completed an education in Finance. Afterwards, he attended the University of Texas at Southwestern in Dallas for medical school.Despite being fond of the southern comfort of Texas, he chose to travel to Chicago to complete his medicine residency and cardiovascular fellowships. He graduated from his final fellowship in Interventional Cardiology from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2011 and moved back home to join his father at CyFair Cardiology.Married and father of three, Dr. Tap realizes the most important role we play in life is what we teach our children. Being a good person, taking care of your health and spending time with the ones you love are what is important to him. Through example, he hopes he can convey this message as best he can in his personal and professional lives.


Dr. Tap currently holds board certification in five areas of cardiology including cardiovascular medicine, interventional and nuclear cardiology, echocardiography and cardiovascular CT. Coming out of training, he held board certification in internal medicine as well.Training in varied environments ranging from county hospitals, the VA system and private practice, he gained the experience of taking care of a wide range of cardiac and vascular pathology in patients from all socio-economic groups. Some of the toughest county environments including Parkland hospital in Dallas and Cook County hospital in Chicago, taught him of the human side to medicine where the challenges patients face in their personal lives cannot be ignored when helping people heal.
