Patient Comments (3)
in Berkeley, CA |
Very personable, professional, and has taken time to thoroughly answer EVERY question we had before surgery and during recovery/healing. Highly recommended and looking forward to next follow up appt!
Oakland, CA |
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.
