no chance of recommendation. Of the 45 minutes I spent in the office, Doc spent about 30 minutes being critical of my insurance. Also refused to take my copay at time of services. Office staff was great, no issues there.

Had mrsa infected knee with extreme swelling. Due to his expert analysis and prompt action was able to to halt issue, correct the problem with very little down time or scarring. A no nonsense doctor that attacks the problem and gets things done. Thanks again Dr. Taylor

My 81-year old mother sustained a spiral fracture to her humerus. Dr. Taylor explained everything about the surgery, what he planned to do, and the possible outcomes. Dr. Taylor performed the weekend surgery (Sunday on a holiday weekend) and my mom has regained full use of her arm. We are grateful Dr. Taylor was on call and performed the surgery - we received the best possible outcome!

Torn Achilles right ankle June 30 while playing racquetball. Dr Taylor saw me in ER and took me in next day. July 1 surgery; July 20 - stitches removed; Aug 20 - Partial load bearing and PT; Oct 15 ran my first 5K after surgery and rehab. December that year did my half. Superb doctor. Explained how he would do the surgery, what to expect, and the prognosis. He KNOWS what he is talking about. Highly recommend.

On Dec. 2, 2015 I fell off my bicycle and turned my right elbow into gravel. Dr. Roger Z. Taylor was assigned to my case. He spent 5 hours in surgery putting the little pieces back together and securing them with 3 plates and 21 screws. Now it is March 11, 2016 and I am finally out of the elbow brace and approved by him to start physical therapy. I already have over 90 degrees of movement and hope to improve in physical therapy. The original estimate was 45 degrees of movement. Great doctor!

This man is amazing. He has, I believe, literally saved me at least twice. In 1989 for 2 herniated discs and in 2005 for right knee replacement. He doesn't send in a colleague to do rounds. He ALWAYS shows up even late at night and right back early in the morning. I'm 64 and wonder where he gets his stamina. I LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM.and can't recommend him HIGH enough. Wish you took Medicare. Elaine Harvey
