Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional and easy to talk to. Would highly recommend.
Dr Robert is a thorough professional and a genuine doctor. Would definitely visit again.
Very pleasant experience. Compare with my past 20 years experience to see my PCP they don't even listen to me or look at my eyes to talk. Those young doctor just stare at monitor to see the test result and decide what to do. Dr. Robert Taylor obviously understand how things going and right to the point and no unnecessary steps. I like the way he treat me.
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Taylor after reading several reviews and receiving a recommendation of a close friend who sees him for ADHD medication. I am new to the Boston area and have been looking for a primary care physician with whom I can form a close relationship, and who will prescribe the medication I have been on for several years. Prior to our appointment- I detailed a comprehensive introduction on ZocDoc regarding my Adderall dosage, and also the importance in forming a close relationship with my PCP. After a 45 minute wait and 30 minute conversation, Dr. Taylor informed me that he does not prescribe any controlled substances. I felt a bit slighted- as my friend had recommended him for ADHD related purposes. I also felt that my time was wasted... as I had specifically mentioned my medical needs prior to our consultation.. Dr. Taylor is a very nice person, but if you are seeking standard medical care... look elsewhere.
I saw Dr. Taylor mainly for some prescriptions. He is a very delightful person and an excellent professional. In addition to the discussion about my medical exam and treatment, we also had a great casual talk because I am a scientist by profession. Highly recommended especially if you are not very sick.
He didn't read the comment box where I described why I was going and when I arrived, I had barely sat down before he said he couldn't help and wished he had read the comments. Sounded like a learning experience with using ZocDoc so I doubt it would happen again.
Great first visit. Really makes you feel comfortable and talks to you as if he had known you for a long time. Will definitely re-book again for any my medical needs.
Dr. Taylor is very helpful and accomdating! He took the time to sit and chat through all my questions and even offered to call and follow up with him any time. Would recommend as anyone's primary care doc.
Great! He's clearly in medicine for the right reasons - to care for people. Thank you!
Best doctor in Boston. !
Dr. Taylor was great. I arrived early for my appointment but he saw me right away. It was my first visit, and Dr. Taylor took some time to get to know me before my examination. He was professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. I'll definitely be visiting Dr. Taylor in the future and would encourage anyone else looking for a doctor to do so too.
Best doctor visit ever. Finally found a doctor in Boston
great man, great doctor
Very attentive doctor and "human". One of a kind. Reassuring yet aware!! Doctors with his intuition are the best. And last but not least, beautiful view from his office in sunroom full of plants that Dr. Taylor babies. Thank you!!!
Doctor has a very very old school mentality, know that when visiting him. He also doesn't have a receptionist so overall the whole experience is very old school. Nice guy, but not for me.
A great man! Made me feel comfortable and not insecure about why I was going in. Highly recommend
Dr. Taylor is a warm and welcoming physician, I was lucky enough to stumble upon his office on ZocDoc and could not have been happier with my experience. There was no wait to see him either!
Dr. Taylor has great bedside manner. He answers his phone even when he's not in the office. Great doctor to have. Very old school.
Dr. Taylor was very easy to talk to and listened to my concerns without making me feel rushed (the appointment lasted ~1 hour), which I appreciated.
Dr. Taylor was wonderful. Compassionate, intelligent, patient and responsive. Top medical professional. I highly recommend him.
Minimal wait time. Dr Taylor is kind and thoughtful. He really listened to my input as to what might be going on.
Dr taylor is very nice and understanding..helpful and polite.
He is so simple but professional. He doesn't order unnecessary tests or procedures. If you are looking for a simple and experienced person, he will be great. If you are looking for a high-end hospital with a lot of staff, he is not the person. I would recommend him if you are relatively healthy like me and wanted to visit a doctor for quick check up or prescriptions for common diseases/sickness and that's how PCP should be. If it get a serious illness, he will be there to refer you to a specialist.
Dr. Taylor was so nice and personable. I felt very comfortable with him and he took the time to really listen to my problems and offer genuine advice.
Dr. Taylor is excellent. Discreet, non-judge mental, and completely professional. Also one hell of a nice guy! Recommend him highly!
Friendly, personable, and easy to communicate with.
