Dr Taylor and his staff was awesome. They worked me in for consultation after I found out some life changing news and needed surgery asap. During the visit either my sugar bottom out or the news he was giving me made me break out in a hot sweat. The staff was awesome Dr Taylor got me a fan the staff got me something to drink and supplied me with some saltine crackers very nice of them to do that. I was back to felling normal in 10min. I was scheduled for surgery within 4 days.

Dr. Taylor removed about two feet of my large intestine (November 2013)... It contained a malignant tumor that had permeated the colon... My oncologist asked me who had performed the operation...he complimented his work... I would use him again without hesitation...

My family's experience with Dr. Taylor could not be more positive. He removed a large tumor on my 93 year old mother's colon, did a colon resection and removed her gall bladder. After five days in the hospital and a week of rehab the was back home and feels better than she has in years. Last week Dr. Taylor repaired my umbilical hernia. I checked into the hospital at 6:00 am and was home at 11:00 am the same morning. My recovery was virtually painless thanks to his surgical skill. A+++
