This guy would have put my wife on anti-seizure meds for what turned out to be hepatic encephalopathy, even though her liver enzymes were through the roof. He never even bothered to check her ammonia levels.

Misdiagnosed me - leaving me deaf for life. Misdiagnosed me two more times - leaving me partially blind in one eye. He does not know the difference between multiple sclerosis and an ear infection. I almost died from mastoiditis (ear infection) because he said I had MS instead. Now I am permanently deaf. As of this year, he misdiagnosed me twice more. Now I am partially blind as a result of his misdiagnoses. If you want to keep your life and 5 senses - STAY FAR FAR AWAY FROM TAYLOR.

I would highly recommend Dr. Howard Taylor for anyone struggling with a TBI. Dr. Taylor was extremely kind, genuine, and had a lot of patience with me. He took the time to listen to me and was exceptionally knowledge about the brain, how it functions, and brain injuries. He updated me on new discoveries and knowledge on brain injuries. I have struggled with this brain injury for the last four years and I haven’t found a doctor that is as understanding and knowledgeable as Dr. Taylor.

Dr. Taylor is a great listener and he always follows through on the thing he says, using both his combined knowledge and wisdom. He is very approachable and lets you explain your symptoms clearly then works with you to find a solution. Randy W.

Dr Taylor listened to my concerns and questions. He reviewed my cervical MRI online with me and even wrote on the MRI report what the lay terms were for the medical terms. I would never had understood it otherwise. He was not rushed in anyway with me.

Dr. Taylor was wonderful once I actually got in to see him. I had a 11:30 appointment and since this was a first appointment I was asked to arrive 30 minutes early to complete the necessary forms. I arrived at the office at 11:00 and at 1 pm I asked when I would be getting in to see the Dr.was then told that he had 2 emergencies and was way behind. I was taken back to the exam room approximately 1:10 I would think that the staff could have informed me of the approx. length of the delay.
