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...more

I would highly recommend Dr. Taylor for your primary care physician. He and his staff are very professional, yet making you feel at ease and comfortable while there. The office is always very neat and clean and the wait time is reasonable.
