Richmond, VA |
Excellent Doctor. He is friendly and courteous and extremely knowledgeable,
Richmond , VA |
Dr. Taylor has been my physician for about 30 years. He's easy to talk with, and always takes the time he Ned's to get the diagnosis right.
in Richmond, VA |
Dr Taylor and his staff really care about me and my health. They take time on my visits to listen to my comments and complaints. I feel very comfortable with the whole picture including ease of parking and access to the office.

Dr Taylor is great to work with and is very detailed in his analysis and follow up.
Richmond VA |
I have been a patient of Dr Taylor's for over twenty years. He is patient and truly interested in the well being of his patients. If I have to wait, it is because I know he is taking the time needed with another patient. Well worth the wait! He listens and suggests healthy strategies for your life.
in Richmond, VA |
Dr. Taylor always takes time to explain my results and discuss my medication. His staff is very pleasant and professional.
in Richmond, VA |
Dr. Taylor is an excellent physician and diagnostician. He is attentive, compationate and thorough. I highly recommend him.
in Richmond, VA |
I have been a patient for only a few years but I have found Dr. Taylor to be confident and he shows concern and spends time listening during visits. He seems to keep on schedule and I have never been left waiting past my appointment time. The staff is friendly and efficient.
in Richmond, VA |
Always pays attention to every symptom. Thorough in examination and recommends potentially life saving tests. One such test revealed early stage lung cancer in my case--literally saved my life. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Taylor!
in Richmond, VA |
Dr. Taylor takes his time to listen to all your medical problems and gives you options to assess what is the best care for you.
Richmond, VA |
Dr Taylor is very responsive and caring. He is extremely busy but takes the time needed to answer questions, shares concerns and refer me elsewhere if needed. I have been with Dr. Taylor for many years and I highly recommend him as a PCP
in Crozier, Va |
Been a patient for over 30 yrs. What else can I say.
Richmond, VA |
It is very difficult to get an appointment. I had to wait two months after the office canceled my appointment for another appointment. It is almost impossible to get at a sick visit appointment. I called at 8:00 and was told they cannot see me. The front desk said to call back the next day and try again. One is forced to go to the doc in the box for needed treatment.
in Richmond, VA |
I have been going to Dr. Taylor for several years and worked with him before he opened his own practice. He has always been very competent and a good listener to my problems. Early calls back on tests results and what needs to be done. Obtaining an appointment has never bee a problem and his staff is most helpful I highly recommend the practice. Bev McGhee

The best family practice I have experienced in years, a great doctor and he values the inputs from his patients .
Glen Allen, VA |
My visits to Dr. Taylor are always efficient with excellent communication and care.
Richmond, VA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor's for a long time. He seems to keep up to date on medical advances, has an excellent memory, and a direct but compassionate bedside manner. (Not that I have ever been in a hospital bed when I have seen him- which may be a recommendation in itself.)
Mineral, VA |
We had an appointment for Nov 30 of this year. While we were on vacation Drs office calls and cancells the appointment. Mind you we made appointment over 3 months in advance. When we called to find out when they were going to see us, said it would be 3 months. They cancelled us and we move to back of line.
We are very sorry to hear about this experience in our practice and would like to look into it further. Please call Laura Morello, Practice Manager, at 804-282-0514 so that we can get further information to address the situation.
in Maidens,Va |
