This content was provided by Dr. Taylor III "I believe in being intimately involved in preoperative as well as postoperative care of my patients. I believe patients should be integral in the surgical decision making process. In order to facilitate this, I pride myself in educating my patients. Patients should know if several different surgical options exist and choose what is best for them. I am trained in both open and advanced Laparoscopic techniques thus allowing me to offer the best option for each patient. I believe in doing what is best for the patient. Even though I am skilled in an extensive array of surgical procedures, I realize that I am not an expert in everything. If a patient is better served by a different surgeon, I will not hesitate to refer to the appropriate specialist. After being a "do everything" surgeon at the County for over 20 years, at this point in my career I am "working" because I truly love what I do."
