Dr. Taylor has been my physician for a number of years and has consistently provided excellent care. I have high cholesterol and some related problems. He has been indispensable. The staff is great. I need blood-work annually and even though I am squeamish it is painless. Dr. Taylor and his staff do fine work.

Dr. Taylor has been my primary care doctor for close to 30 years. He is patient, listens well, is knowledge-able and is willing to do whatever is needed to keep me well. I never feel rushed. His nurse, is equally wonderful. She has a can do attitude, is pleasant, listens well, and will actually return phone calls. The office personnel are very efficient and friendly. When life throws a curve ball and you need to see the doctor same day, they will work you in. I love this group. They care!

EXTREMELY LIKELY!!!! I was referred to Dr. Taylor by my sister, who had been seeing him for about 25 years or more. Sorry I didn't see him sooner. Excellent doctor! What I would refer to as "an old school doctor". Meaning, he provides the quality of care that doctors probably gave when they made house calls; he's patient, thorough, kind, compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, and a whole lot more. I hope he never retires. I don't want another doctor. He's a keeper.

Dr. Taylor has been my primary care physician for many years. He is knowledgeable, personable and genuinely interested in his patients. He is an expert diagnostician with many years of experience who remains up to date in a wide range of medical fields. He listens to his patients and spends the time needed to understand medical problems, recommend or prescribe appropriate treatments or medications and make appropriate referrals to specialists as needed. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Taylor was my father's doctor for many years until my Dad passed away in April, 2017, at the age of 97, and he has been my and my husband's PCP for at least ten years. Between the three of us, there have been many visits to Dr. Taylor's office. Dr. Taylor is kind, conscientious, professional, and dedicated to his patients. He listens, examines, informs, and advises. He treats the condition, when necessary. If a situation calls for a referral, he provides that. He is the perfect PCP.

I would and have recommended Dr. Taylor to many people. He has been my doctor for over 20 years. When my government careercaused me to re-locate from Richmond to Washington, I remained in Dr. Taylor's care. Today, I still drive over one hour to receive his care. I have never visited with him when he did not give me the attention that I expected from a doctor. He should be teaching other doctors what patient care is about.

Dr.Taylor is the best! He has been my PCP for about 20 years now and I just dread the day he retires... I hate the thought of having to find another doctor. He's comfortable to be around, asks the right questions, always explains things in a manner I can understand and never tries rushing me through an appointment, even if he's running behind... This doctor is worth the wait.

Dr. Taylor has been managing my health care for about 20 years. He insisted that take and physical exam and we learned that my Cholesterol and Triglycerides increased. While I was not experiencing any problems, he pro-actively put me on statins to reduce my Chol. and Tri. levels, and now are within normal ranges. A first class doctor who looks out for his patients, BEFORE, trouble starts.

I think I've been seeing Dr. Taylor probably since 1985. I've always been completely satisfied with each visit and he takes the time to listen, evaluate your reasons for the appointments, and he reviews your previous visits before recommending a specialists, a prescription, therapy, etc. The doctors (surgeons) he's recommended in the past have been ones I refer to my friends.
