What People Say About Dr. Joseph Taylor, MD
Reply Flag
I've been a patient of Dr. Taylor for many years. After experiencing a very high spike in my b.p. prior to a stressful procedure 3 years ago, Joe recommended a particular book about mind/body approaches to stress. That book ignited an interest in meditation which has profoundly changed my life. It would have been so easy for him to have prescribed medication. I will forever be grateful for his advice.
