Dr. Taylor is always professional and attentive. He provides good, specific information and answers questions thoroughly. His pleasant demeanor puts you at ease and his knowledge is reassuring. His staff is excellent - very friendly and welcoming, and treat you well. They are very efficient and cover everything you need to know and do. If you have questions or problems with insurance, scheduling, etc. they patiently listen and provide help. Best overall medical office I've ever been to..

I just called to get a copy of my port removal for insurance and they faxed it to me. Never asked for any identifying information except my name and the date I was there. When she faxed it to me, my diagnosis was wrong!! Said I had breast cancer but I actually had lymphoma. Had my past history as chemotherapy due to breast cancer. When I called back to make the correction, they were rude that I pointed out his mistake. Told me to call back the next day for the corrected copy!
