I was very pleased with the excellent care that I received during my initial consultation. Dr. Taylor treated me with respect & was extremely thorough. He spent a lot of time discussing my health conditions. The office staff was also very cordial & respectful.

His office staff is completely inept. Hour and and half to see dr with scheduled appt is apparently the norm. I feel that is very disrespectful of the patients. Dr Taylor is a nice guy. His staff can't schedule mri's or untrasounds without completely screwing thing up. My referral started Dec. 20 and it took them until Jan 28 to get the results due to clerical or organizational foul ups. Moving on to another practice. TriStar deserves better.

Had an outpatient surgery today by Dr Taylor to remove a piece of glass that had been imbedded in my shoulder for over 52 years. All went so smooth as he and his Nurse practitioner took such fantastic care of me. Dr Taylor and his entire staff are super fantastic folks and I would highly recommend them to all friends and family members.

I went just to ask questions about an upcoming surgery (2nd opinion) and he was very patient and answered all my questions. He reassured me that the surgery was right for me. I will definitely go to him in the future if I ever need a procedure done.

Dr. Taylor was very personable. He talked to me about my medical issues and listened to me. He was thorough with his exam. He continually asked if I had any questions. Also, he laid out several scenarios of what will be coming next.

The dark needs to go back to clown college and maybe they will give him the red nose to go along with that goofy tie he wears He’ll get his karma because he ain’t no damn doctor maybe for those that don’t have insurance. I don’t know who he pays to get those stars because if he had those many stars his waiting room wouldn’t be empty

When my 15 year old son had to have his gallbladder removed, I insisted on Dr. Taylor! He did a hernia repair on me in June. He is so caring. He takes his time with you and is totally up to date on the latest procedures. His staff is also amazing!!!! You will love him and feel confident in his ability!!!

I have spent nearly 2 decades in and out of hospitals for an array of serious medical issues, and I have never encountered a doctor as proficient and compassionate as Dr. Taylor. Surgery is painful, but your office visits don't have to be. He spent so much time explaining my condition, as well as deciphering my [faultless] complications. No one else has even come close to that level of care. If you have a choice, this is your best option by far. I'd see him for everything if I could! 10 stars!
