Dr. Taylor had no warmth - never a smile or points of non-clinical connection. She used only clinical language, like "You have a [insert Latin phrase]", without explaining, and then made me feel uncomfortable for asking follow-up questions (short responses, edging to the door). When, after several annual checkups, I decided to switch, I had the unique opportunity to price compare. She was going to charge me $700 for a cyst removal that the new doctor was only going to charge $300 for. And he is warm and caring (kid art in the exam room, common language explanations, patience). He also addressed several skin issues that Dr. Taylor had commented on with a much higher degree of expertise. His name is Dr. Eric Hester - he is Awesome.
