Very

I have been a patient at this office for almost two years, and I never had a problem with Dr. Taylor. I never once felt rushed nor disappointed by his diagnostics . I took mom to see him for ear pain and she is very picky just like me about her doctors and she was very impressed. He is very knowledgeable, very passionate about his work, and he clearly explains everything in details. The staff are amazing. Love this office and Dr. Taylor and his staff set the bar high for other doctors. Loubna S

This doctor was distracted during my consultation, and spent very little time with me (10 mins). He was very dismissive of my symptoms, and did not provide me with any helpful feedback or insight as to why I was having my medical issues. The consultation was very disappointing, and I would not trust this providers decisions on my health, or that of my family or friends.

When I was explaining my symptoms to Dr. Taylor, he shook his head and placed his hand up to stop me. He then put his hand to his chin, and said I only deal with problems from here up and gestured to the ear, nose, throat area. He did this twice during the consult, and this sums up my disappointing experience with him. I left with no diagnosis nor helpful feedback. If you are looking for a doctor that will integrate your ENT symptoms with overall health, he is not that type of physician.
