I sought out the opinion of Dr. Taylor after several unhelpful visits with a different ENT. That ENT made me feel like I was wasting his time. With Dr. Taylor, it was like night and day. In every visit, he hastaken the time to listen to my concerns and explain everything in detail. Dr. Taylor performed my sinus surgery in June, and was available daily when I had questions and concerns about my recovery. The office staff is friendly as well. After my surgery, I hope that I will not need to see Dr. Taylor as often, but I trust him fully with my care.

My issue ended up not being an ENT issue, so I was not fully treated by Dr. Taylor--but he had fantastic bedside manner, and was committed to making sure I had correct, and immediate care for my condition, going above andbeyond to call my referring doctor and helping me in the moment. Will definitely be coming back if/when I have a confirmed ENT issue!

Dr. Taylor is one of the better doctors I've seen. He has a well-documented track record so his reputation precedes him, but unlike many other specialists, he is not full of himself. So what you get is a calm, confident, andfriendly expert helping and guiding you. He also tailors his very methodical treatment approach based on your personal situation. I cannot recommend him enough.

Dr. Taylor takes the time to listen to your concerns and will move forward quickly to try to find out the true cause of the problem. He is not the type of doctor that hands you a bag of pills andgoes to the next patient he truly is looking for the answer. If you want a doctor that will help Dr. Taylor is your answer.

Amazingly thorough, excellent in bedside manner, works hard to educate his patients. I would be hard pressed to think of any bad thing about my visit. I booked online the night before, and even though they could not confirm till themorning of, they honored the appointment. Furthermore, he recommended what I would call the best medicines for the job, but having only minimal insurance and being a more expensive medicine, I requested a substitution, which was made without any issues. There were no generics available for the original, so the doctor had to involve himself a second time with my issues...but without any hassle to me. On cancelling the follow up ( because I had completely recovered ), he personally talked to me myself to make sure I was okay - I don't know any other doctors that do this. This man is amazing.

Dr. Taylor possess a wonderful bedside manner. He reminds me of the doctors who really cared about the patient when I was a little girl. It was as if they were treating a family member much like Dr. Taylor. Dr. Taylorwas thorough and he recommended several things that no one else had noticed or recommended. Thanks to Dr. Taylor I revisied my neurologist who was able to see that I needed attention to my neck and shoulder by a physical therapist.
