What People Say About Dr. Stephen Taylor, MD

Dr. Taylor diagnosed an aggressive malignant prostate tumor after a missed diagnosis by another physician. His surgery was only the beginning of an excellent 12-year physician-patient relationship. He provides outstanding patient education and his communication is understandable and to the point. His professionalism and communication is excellent. I have to rate him as the best physician I have ever had in my 70 years, and I do not say that lightly.

Lying, condescending, arrogant surgeon. After removing hsbs. Prostate, head of bladder, etc., he told us no further treatment needed. Couple of yrs. later his PSA rose again, failed full radiation TX.,now doing poorly on chemo. We have since learned he lied , 'borders not clean' when we needed copy of med.records for VA. He cost my hsb. quality and quantity of life and he didn't follow his Hippocratic oath of 'Do No Harm'. Don't make our mistake by seeing this doctor!!!
