Miami, FL |
Excellent communication and discussion of options
in Eglin Afb, FL |
Dr. Edwin Taylor is a first rate physician. He listens to his patients and applies his vast experience as a provider in a most professional way. He is like the old family doctor, he greets you with a sincere smile, listens to your complaints and applies first rate answers. His sincerity is beyond question. He won't rush you or make you feel you are anything but his main concern. I envy those of you who are in his care. You have the best of the best in this physician.

He explains and takes his time with you.

Be careful, they bill for random things and do not tell you about it. It took me 4 months to be able to speak to anyone in billing about it and when I called the front desk they told me that they couldn't help me get a hold of anyone in billing because that was a different department. My insurance told me that if they would bill my son's appointment as preventative it would be covered by insurance but the billing people refuse to do so.
This Dr is pathetic. He carries a laptop & you assume he's taking notes on you, but each time you see him, he asks questions as if he never took a note. He recommended I get a CT scan and the next day, his assistant calls me to tell me I have a tumor in my left kidney and says they are getting me to a Urologist. Week after week there is no call. I keep calling & they say they will get me a referral & nothing happens. It has been a month now since my CT Scan and I just got hung up on again. Done.

We love, love, love Dr Taylor & the whole group & definitely recommend them to family & friends & anyone looking for a new PCM. Great group. Professional. Courteous. Very, very clean. Wait time can vary but he pays a lot of attention to his patients which is great & worth the additional wait.

Dr. Taylor takes the time to get to know his patients as people not a chart number! You want to have a doctor that becomes like family, he has done that for my family!!
in Little Elm, TX |
Will not go back after 1 visit. Trying to order tests based off a questionnaire. said I need a sleep study test even though my ENT doesn't feel I do. Tried to order allergy tests because i checked off occassional itchy eyes and occassional seasonal allergies. Insisted I need a referral to see a urologist even though I already had an appointment with them and had talked to my insurance company. NEITHER SAID I NEEDED A REFERRAL! He billed my insurance company for a physical without doing one.
in Plano, TX |
Dr. Taylor is the most thorough and helpful physician I have ever seen. No doctor has ever taken the time like he has, I'm normally rushed on and given meds with little interaction.
in Pensacola, FL |
Worst doctor EVER!! I reviewed this fraud once before but mysteriously it has disappeared. I told him I was extremely sensitive to serotonin but he refused to give me my normal medication and instead gave me something that affects serotonin levels. I tried to use it for two weeks but after almost no sleep and a head that felt like it was going to explode I called to ask for a change in medication. He refused then told me he would no longer be my doctor and further would not give me a referral.
