A New York native, Dr. Tapper attended Brooklyn College, where she was elected Phi Beta Kappa, won the prestigious Elise Tobin Award in Chemistry, and graduated Summa Cum Laude. After completing medical school at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Medical School, she attended the SUNY Health Science Center Downstate in Brooklyn for her ophthalmology residency, where she was selected Chief Resident in her senior year. After finishing her Ophthalmology residency, she completed a fellowship in glaucoma (also at the SUNY Health Science Center Downstate), where she then stayed on as an Assistant Instructor in Ophthalmology.
Dr. Tapper has been in private practice for many years. Most recently, she served as an attending physician in ophthalmology at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, from 2007 to 2010. Her areas of interest include general ophthalmology, no-stitch cataract surgery, laser eye surgery, and trabeculoplasty.
