Dr. Taylor’s staff is very welcoming. My appointment was right on time, and Dr. Taylor is both friendly and thorough inskin checks. I would most highly recommend her. My sister also goes to her, and my husband (who is a physician) sees her next week.

Dr. Taylor is very thorough, polite, and adressed all of my concerns. I came in for an all over body check and she identified areas to watch and others that needed to be frozen or biopsied. She took care of everything right then and there, dictating detailed notes to her assistant. I scheduled a follow up for 4 months to relook at the items that need to be watched. Biopsy results will be back in two weeks...always nerve racking, but I trust Dr. Taylor will have a plan if next steps are needed.

Dr. Taylor is GREAT - friendly, fast, and thoughtful. Her office staff are knowledgeable, efficient, and happy to help. Yea, sometimes there's a wait - what can I say, this doc is in demand and sometimes she likes to take an extra moment with the patient. I'm okay waiting because it's a quality experience when she does get in to see ya. I've being seeing this doc for years and highly recommend her.

My initial and follow-up appointments were quick. My only feedback (which is why I did 4/5 stars) is that I would have hoped for a more thorough body check of my moles. Just because I am not a sun worshiper does not mean I should have such an expeditious process. I've had several bad sunburns in my life and that is what I am concerned about.

Dr. Taylor was in a rush and didn't instill in me confidence that she knew what she was talking about. She didn't ask if I drink or smoke, didn't ask about my medical history or current medications, and literally googled how a medication works in front of me. I will not be returning.

The appointment was very quick; however, I was not notified of the aftercare of my procedure until after the procedure was complete. I would have appreciated understanding this before agreeing to the procedure at that appointment.

Dr. Taylor's office has polite, kind staff from check-in through check-out. I had to have a procedure that was a little scary, but Dr. Taylor and her medical assistant talked me through the whole thing and made me feel much more at ease. Their instructions for follow-up were clear, too. It's a great practice.

I went in with 2 issues to have looked at, stated them quite clearly, and still left the office with her not having addressed one (although she did zero in on an additional issue I had not originally come in for - which I appreciated) I suppose I will present this residual issue when I am there for my follow up. Otherwise I found Dr. Taylor to be kind, professional, and knowledgeable. Perhaps a little rushed.

Visit was ok, very brief and I didn't get a full chance to say what I was there for before she was doing a full skin check (which I didn't need having just had one, I had the made the appointment specific to something else but not sure that info was passed on). Diagnosis seemed high level and was prescribed 4 medications without doing a thorough analysis. Hoping it works but overall felt like the doc could spend only 5 minutes before ushering herself out of the room. There were also two scribes, one was apparently learning however, doc spent most of the time speaking directly to them in medical language vs. engaging with me, the patient. Also uncomfortable having two additional strangers listen in on my medical appointment. Not sure I would recommend if people are looking for someone to really listen and do what the patient wants, but at least she seemed fairly competent as a doctor, or so I hope to find out with the regimen she prescribed.

It was a great visit. The only issue that occurred was that because I was 8 minutes (I called because I couldn't find the office in the mall and I was in site), the appointment after me was invites to go ahead of me. I understood this and thought it was fair, however when the receptionist explained that additional appointments would continue to go ahead of me I was bewildered. That is my only complaint. The receptionist was professional and friendly but allowing more than 1 person to go ahead of me was just unfair. Also the prescription processing could have been explained better to save me to trips in traffic...all this aside I am happy to return because I still felt that the overall expertise and quality of care was excellent!

I was surprised Dr. Taylor didn't take more time to discuss my options. I already knew about everything else and was leaning toward Accutane, but she jumped right to Accutane, do not pass go, do not collect 200. Just thought it was odd and a little bit rushed for my first appointment with her. Not that I needed her to buy me dinner first or anything lol, maybe just a little more explanation behind her rationale for future patients.

Dr. Claudia and staff were friendly. Not overly, but cordial. I didn't expect two other people (note takers) to come into the room with the doctor (at one point there was a third person in addition to the Dr. and scribes / aka three's a crowd) so that wasn't expected or disclosed ahead of time - which would have been nice to get a heads up prior to the appointment. Overall satisfactory but not exceptional.

Claudia Taylor is one of the best. I have seen a lot of doctors, dentists, dermatologists etc and she is everything you would want in a doctor. She's smart, polite, caring, direct and a good teacher. All of her office staff are lovely and I hardly ever have to wait. Her recommendations are effective and in your best interest. She is a breath of fresh air. Go see her and you'll be referring her to everyone like I am :)
