“Dr. Taylor was referred to me by another surgeon for a lumber spine injection for pain management. This is a procedure done in a surgical setting. There were 3 appointments...pre & post and the injection. In all appointments Dr. Taylor gave me his total attention. Listened to my concerns and gave me detailed answers. The procedure went very smoothly and his competence and warm nature gave me full confidence and low stress. He's a wonderful doctor!”
