We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

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+++
