Dr. Taylor is amazing. He’s very reassuring and knowledgeable. He’s great with kids without being overly patronizing. He gave my 2 1/2 year old a flu shot and she didn’t even notice.

Dr. Taylor is efficient in his exams, respectful to the child and the parent, asks if we have questions before the appointment ends and takes the time to answer. He is also personable and relatable. Dr. Taylor has been our kids’ pediatrician since they (one boy, one girl) were born. They are now in pre-teen/teen years. I am grateful for his experience and expertise, especially with sports-related issues, and the consistency of having him as our kids’ doctor.

Dr. Taylor has the ability to balance an enjoyable visit with sound medical advice. He takes the time to engage his patients by asking them about their hobbies or sports while completing all his “checks”. He has kept our son alive through multiple health challenges ( which started the day he was born.) Dr Taylor collaborates well with specialists and never hesitates to pick up the phone and call the panicked parent back. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful pediatrician he is.

Office runs on time, is friendly, and Dr. Taylor answers all our questions but remains to the point and concise which is a style I greatly appreciate. He’s thorough and thoughtful but doesn’t waste time. He’s also available, when we needed a quick check on the baby we were able to set up a zoom call very fast were he could assess and advise. We’ve also used the after hours hotline a few times and they’ve been great too.

Dr. Taylor always puts my mind at ease. He speaks in plain English so parents can understand and is realistic to our surroundings and environment. He never makes us feel like we are doing something wrong and his professionalism combined with personality is excellent. We love Dr Taylor, even after the shots.

Dr. Taylor not only checked my daughter’s physical health, but he checked on her mental well-being, which is so critical during these days if Covid-19/quarantine. He took time to pass along an excellent resource for our family. He knows our family well, remembers each of us and our backgrounds, and he always takes the time to fully check out my kids Without being rushed. He always asks if we have questions and thoroughly answers them. We trust Dr. Taylor with those we value most - our children.

We had to find a new dr within our medical group because our previous dr retired and Dr. Taylor was the one! He is so easy to talk with and he listens and does not or rush his patients. He’s very personable and professional and my 13 year-old son felt very comfortable w/him immediately upon meeting him. That’s HUGE! Great bedside manner and not arrogant. Seems great with kids. Funny too.

He’s so nice and helpful. We were especially impressed when we called with a question he was the actual one to call us back which we weren’t expecting. Also spends time and allows questions- we don’t feel rushed like with other doctors!
