    How was your appointment with Dr. Taylor?

    Jan 10, 2018
    Dr Taylor is amazing! He was my second opinion after being told my tumor, inside my spinal cord, was inoperable. Dr Taylor performed my 10 hour surgery. I could’ve been a paraplegic or quadriplegic because of where my tumor was located. I’m overjoyed to say I learned to walk again in rehabilitation. I have minimal nerve damage and it’s all because of Dr Taylor’s incredible surgical skills. To this day, when I need someone to look at my MRI, it’s Dr Taylor whom I trust to look at my results.
