Do not choose Dr. Taylor, he is not trustworthy. He is superficially charming but by your second visit you will start to realize that he lacks empathy, is reckless with his prescriptions and generally irresponsible. I went to him with a relatively minor problem - work stress was giving me stomach problems - and after suffering for two months of emotional/prescription abuse from him, I felt like I was having a breakdown. Shortly after leaving his care I felt worlds better. Pick anyone but him!

Dr. Taylor sells "MD" like a car salesmen sells a paint warranty. He was about getting through appointments and collecting money. Best advice I received recently from Mayo Clinic: make sure to ask any psychologist/psychiatrist if they themselves have gone to talk therapy. The most qualified always have and are open to letting you know with a "yes". Otherwise unresolved issues are brought into their practice. As in Dr. Taylor's. I wish him well and hope he pursues another profession.

I was a graduate student at UCLA. During that time you could email your psychiatrist. He oversubscribed me stimulant medication to the point where I was so anxious I was not leaving my room. I then emailed him on multiple occasions that I was not well. When he finally checked his email, he realized that I was not well. In order to avoid malpractice suits, he lied and claimed I was homicidal. He lied on legal documents. He used his 'forensic' specialty against his patient. He is a true criminal.
