After more than 20 years in private practice, Dr. Taylor is excited to be working for a health care system that allows him to focus on patient care, while having access to an established network where he can refer patients for more specialized treatment when necessary.

Dr. Taylor is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He has worked in the orthopedics field since 1986.
