Patient Comments (3)
I thought he was terrific. Took a very conservative approach to my painful shoulder-- "don't rush to surgery" - which I especially appreciated, coming from a surgeon. Took the time to listen carefully, explain, and provide a plan. He and his staff were warm, friendly and supportive. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Taylor did absolutely nothing in terms of trying to alleviate pain in shoulder or offer suggestions in addressing numbness and tingling in forearm into fingers. I won't be going back
