I've been with Dr. Taylor for many years, and really love his friendly demeanor and his thorough examination of my eyes. He's easy to talk to and so are the assistants and front desk employees. I'm very happy with him and his excellent care!

It took a while to get an appointment, but this was not an emergency, so, not an issue. Check-in was easy, no wait. Short wait in lobby. The nurses/assistants were nice; some were more business-like, but okay. Dr. Taylor introduced himself when he entered the room, which I appreciated. He did explain what he was looking for/at as he examined my eyes and asked questions about my history. Still waiting for a call after Dr. Taylor gets my records from another source, but haven't had to wait longer than expected.

Dr. Taylor was almost two hours late, breezed into the room and didn’t apologize for making me wait. He repeatedly interrupted and talked over me, was condescending, ignored my primary concerns, and did not explain the procedures he was doing. He literally told me to google the diagnosis he gave me rather than explaining it himself. He also thanked me for being a fascinating case study. I have never been treated with such disrespect by a physician. I felt dehumanized and like my time had been utterly wasted. I’m will not return to this doctor again.

This was the worst visit I have ever had I had to wait over an hour past the time I was suppose to see the Doctor. No explanation was given as to why it was taking so long. So I walk out. Then the front desk went back to check to see what happen and said the doctor could see me. So I reluctantly went back to see the doctor and he begins giving me a hard time for walking out and said that I lost my place in line and he had to interrupt seeing other patients to see me. Am I not a patient too or just chopped liver. Who the hell does he think he is talking to a patient that way. At least the nurse should have given us an explanation and she did not. I could have understood if someone would have just come in and told us that the Doctor was running late because of emergencies and etc. That did not happen. After being a patient for over twenty years I will no longer use Discover O for my eye care.

Dr. Taylor is excellent as is his assistant. He diagnosed my problem and today my eyes have significantly improved. He is thorough, asks questions and listens to answers, experienced, communicates with other doctors (ie primary care) and ispersonable.

I've been a patient of Dr. Taylor for about 20 years, and have dealt with some pretty scary conditions under his diagnosis, treatment and care. Dr. Taylor has always given me the clearest explanations, genuine concern, and highest quality care.

Dr Taylor and his staff are outstanding and very thorough. Shelly takes time to do each exam the right way. Dr. Taylor always has a smile when he enters the exam room. He takes time to explain things to you. I HIGHLY recommend him.
