We had an emergency pediatric surgery fall upon our family on a beach trip for Florida. Dr. Taylor went out of his way to visit with us pre-op, comfort us and give us confidence in his process, and take amazing care of our little baby. He is a blessing.

Dr. Taylor is the best doctor EVER. He takes time to explain things. He has taken great care of my special needs daughter. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!!!

My son had his tongue tie clipped last year. We were referred by his normal doctor just to fix this issue. It was fixed, so I'm not going to complain about his skills, but I will not return to a doctor that is not up to date on infant care. My son is intact, and this guy tried to retract him without even saying a thing. This guy needs to learn about proper intact care. And why did he go for his penis when we're there for a TONGUE TIE?! Seriously, Dr Taylor needs to really get his mind in check.

This doctor is amazing! I read a comment below about how he supposedly pushes circumcision. That was the complete opposite of my experience with him. He explained all of the risks thoroughly, and allowed me to make my own choice. In the end, we decided not to do it, and he completely respected that. He is a great surgeon, and his bedside manner is wonderful. He went above and beyond in his follow up care of my child, and my child adores him. Excellent Doctor
