We have been taking our daughter to Dr. Taymor since she was born. He comes across as a bit gruff, and is not for everyone, but he wins our endorsement because 1) he is almost always available, even at his cell phone, and will respond to texts or emails almost immediately 2) he clearly and directly communicates issues, and 3) he avoids overtesting and overmedicating. I feel like many doctors over-test to cover their on liability. He is a welcome exception.
