I saw Dr. Taylor for a second opinion regarding my hands. I was able to get an appointment in a very timely and efficient manner. Dr. Taylor and his staff were friendly, informative and listened to my concerns. Dr. Taylor explained my treatment options and did not rush me into a decision. I received an injection in my hand which Dr. Taylor administered very easily with little discomfort. I will be continuing my treatment with Dr. Taylor. His staff is easily reached with one phone call.

Dr. Kenneth W. Taylor operated on both of my knees in 2012 & 2013, total knee replacement. He did for me what the VA medical Center could not do for me a Vietnam Veteran, I highly recommend Dr. Taylor for any Orthopedic surgery you may have. I have no pain on my knees, I can swim just as good as before, climb stairs up and down with no pain. Armando Lopez Jr.

Great personality, friendly, very informative, great surgeon, you can barely see the scar, and this is 6 weeks out of surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone even the most afraid person.

Dr. Taylor told me I would be walking with my new knee in a short time. It is 6 weeks since my surgery and I am indeed walking. He did a great job! I got an appointment quickly before and after surgery. My wait time at most was 10 minutes. He has a great attitude and bedside manner. He is a skilled surgeon and didn't make my knee look like Frankentstein stitches. Looking to have him do my other knee in the fall. Would definitely recommend.

Dr. Taylor treated my wife Cindy Coombs for a broken wrist, he lso performed surgery for the same. i found him the consummate professional, he kept me informed every step of the way, and his followup care has been top shelf. I would recommend him to anyone.

Can you say Dr Marcus Welby ? Bedside manner and professional attitude beyond reproach. 14 years of visits and all of them have been delightful and competent. Highly recommend to all my family and friends

Dr Taylor came in to Regional Memorial emergently and saw me promptly when the ER MD called him. He was kind, courteous and professional! He explained the procedure to me and also repeated himself very patiently because I was so scared I could not understand! He made me feel very good when he told me who was going to do what to me and told me these coworkers were the very best! My Phys Therapist is exremely impressed with the work he did on the badly fractured wrist! I'm healiing well!
This doctor(?) don't even deserve one star. ABSOLUTELY unprofessional. You never see this man. You speak to the receptionist who runs back and forth to deliver messages from him to patient. I came in for a prior wrist fracture that happened 4 days earlier and the wrist was already straightend/ manipulated WITH FULL SEDATION. This creep of a doctor gave us the bill of $2100 first unless we would pay $860 cash. I did not agree with him regarding re breaking my wrist without any pain relief.

Dr. Taylor says...

My approach to being an Orthopedic Surgeon is to take good care of the patients who entrust themselves or their families to me.  I always try to be conservative and treat you without surgery whenever possible and do my best during operative treatment when it is necessary.  My goal is for you to leave my office understanding your condition and having had your questions answered. Today's world of medicine is challenging for patient's and their doctors alike.  I will do my best to stand out as a "regular guy" and talk to you in terms that you can understand.
