“"Dr. Taylor always treats me like he really cares about hoe I am doing. I had a total knee replacement. He did a great job on the surgery and you can barley see the scar. I had some problems with the muscle afterwards and Dr Taylor got the best treatment for my problem. I have known Dr. Taylor for about 25 years and he seems like family to my family and me. Thank You."”
