I've seen Dr. Taylor several times and each visit I feel confident in his diagnosis and his expertise. Dr. Taylor looks you straight in the eyes when he speaks to you regarding your condition and he has a friendly and caring bedside manner. I'm pretty tough on rating doctors, but I trust Dr. Taylor to the fullest.

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
