Although I think Dr. Taylor is a nice person, when I showed him a bruise that emerged while being on Coumadin and treating myself for pneumonia at home, I was told there was nothing to worry about. I was fearful that since I had taken a few doses of Advil that week, that my blood was becoming "too thin." After he diagnosed me with pneumonia and prescribed me antibiotics (2 types) for treatment, no emphasis was put on checking my INR. After starting the antibiotics over the weekend, I developed severe abdomenal pain. I tried calling his office several times on Oct. 3 and 4, seeking advice/an appointment, with little help. I ended up going to the ER on Tuesday and was diagnosed with a large, abdomenal hematoma, which developed due to my blood being way "too thin," in combination with a cough I had related to the pneumonia (ruptured blood vessels). I have been out of work for almost 3 weeks due to the pneumonia, and now these major complications from it. I feel the complications could have been totally avoided, had the priority been checking my INR while on these new meds. Additionally, nearly all of the money we had accrued in our HSA will now have to go toward our high-deductible of $3,000. This is also something that I think could have very easily been avoided. As a patient and consumer, I am feeling a bit betrayed and frustrated, not to mention in pain and fatigued.

I can only hope you have read every single individual rating in this survey and don't skim. the office at the clinic was terrific. but your phone system's constant flaws were enough to send a very patient professional through the roof. I couldn't imagine an elderly person successfully navigating this without confusion. it was sad.

The care provider, sure I would recommend--but this facility? Not a chance at the moment.
Sep 10
he was nice as a person but didn't have much concern for me being there.

Dr. Taylor was great in all regards.
Aug 15
Dr Taylor always shows he's interested in me. He asks about family, work and if there's problems I want to share. He explains anything I have questions about.
Aug 12
The provider is not thorough and not proactive. I am not satisfied with this MD.
Aug 11
Dr. Taylor provided an excellent overview of the events and results of my recent hospitalization - what happened, why it happened, and what might happen in the future (since I take blood thinners). I now have a very clear idea of what happened and what to do in the future if it happens again. I have been very pleased with all of the care that Dr. Taylor has provided me with over the years as his patient.

dr. Taylor is my PCP and to be honest in the past I have not been impressed. However, he was very interested in determining what medical issues I had and very intent on Friday me the information my wife and I needed in including us in the treatment plan.

Important not to 'dumb down' comments from physician to patient.

The caregiver really didn't know me, and I'm not sure he looked at my online chart of meds. He suggested I try Sudafed, even though I am on a blood pressure medication. He didn't seem to listen when I told h Z-paks don't work for me, and then he checked my chart. I did start the Augmentin immediately and started feeling better within 24 hours.

Dr Taylor is very knowledgeable about my condition and shows insight into my situation. I think he is great.

not sure a fist bump is what I am looking for in an annual physical.

I left the office feeling that all concerns had been fully discussed and with a sense of well-being. I would recommend Dr Taylor and his staff to any of my family or friends if they were in need of medical care.
May 17
I have recommended Dr Taylor to both my sons and friends. He is personable friendly and genuinely cares for our wellbeing
May 13
Dr Taylor literally spent less than two min with me. He seemed to know what my issue was immediately but I would've liked to have had him examine the area a little closer just to be certain. And I find I often have to probe and ask questions to get more detail out of him, something I wish he would provide willingly without being prodded. Quite often after I have left I remember one or two other questions I wish I had asked. I shouldn't leave the office feeling uncertain, which I did. Fortunately he did recommend a specialist so at least I know my questions will be answered there.

I was having an acute medical problemA specialist's office suggested I go to ER. This physician of this survey saw me right away. He is my primary care physician

Dr. Taylor is fantastic!

Dr. Taylor is always nice, professional, and makes me feel confident that he is competent and up-to-date. I am glad I was assigned to him years ago when I started coming to Geisinger.

I still have issues with a swollen finger that movement is restricted and the doctor basically said I stubbed it and didn't examine it further or at all for that matter. A month and a half later I still have swelling, pain and limited range of motion. Needed to be referred to my orthopedic doctor for my hip which is giving me issues and didn't get that. I got a 6 month follow up
Apr 27
Extremely would recommend Dr. Taylor. He is a caring doctor. Thank you...

Good soul.
Feb 25
Dr. Taylor is a gem. He always is thorough, friendly and professional. Without exception he listens to all of my concerns and addresses them. He consistently looks for ways to provide the best treatment. You better raise his pay - if he goes to another health care provider I'm going with him!
Feb 24
Dr Taylor is by far the best doctor we have had and would like to clone him so that we can have more appointments available for us to only see him. He explains and gives us choices we are comfortable with. Our whole family goes to him and loves it.
Feb 23
Excellent care: very kind and knowledgeable, understanding, professional, with a high level of expertise. Dr. Taylor is also a good listener.
Feb 20
Both the nurse and doctor were outstanding.

He rushed me out the door. I didn't feel comfortable with this provided. Didn't really care about my history and what usually happens to me when I start feeling the way I was.
Feb 15
I just switched to this PCP and am very glad I did. I am much happier with him as my care provider.
Feb 15
Dr Taylor answered all my questions, did not make me feel rushed, and even sent an email to my cardiologist for me.

Talk Taylor is a very good doctor. He actually listens and provides good feedback. I've seen several doctors, but I rank him the highest at of all that I've seen.

Dr Taylor has been family doc for over 10 years now. When my Mom was moved here from SC for assisted living, her lovingly cared for her like he would his own mother. When he advised my wife and me that I had lymphoma, he cried as any friend would. When he learned that I was in remission after chemo, he cried again, this time with me because we were both happy. My doc is real, he cares, and he's a friend!

Does everything an excellent doctor should do.
Nov 5, 2015
I had a list of five things to discuss/review, each was met with a passivity and/or the attitude "it is what it is." I've been disappointed with this PCP's attitude in the past but shrugged it off. Not any more.
Nov 3, 2015
I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor for many years and have often referred family and friends to him.

Dr. Taylor is amazing!
