Dr. Taylor is awesome. I had a major injury and ended up having emergency surgery and all my follow up appointments with Dr. Taylor. He is incredibly calm and professional, which makes a big difference when the injury and the situation is stressful. I very much had the sense that he was willing to answer all of my questions in a straightforward way, even when I wasn't going to like the answer. That's a rare trait.

His ability to show care and concern for me as a patient was terrible. No real discussion about my painful condition. He is dry. He is unconcerned. Almost robotic. I never felt this level of indifference from a doctor and I've been around many. He flat out wouldnt assist me to address my health situation and yes there were factors to consider that made my case complicated... but it was his lack of real concern, lack of alternatives or solutions, that caused me to write this post. Avoid.

Dr.Taylor was amazing in every facet of the process of having my left knee replaced. The office was courteous, understanding, great job they do there. Will be going back to replace my right knee. Total confidence in his ability to operate. Came from san jose to see Dr.Taylor.
