Dr. Taylor and staff talked to me the way gifted athletic coaches talk to athletes.

Dr. Taylor's practice--including Laurie the Office Manager and Theresa the Nurse Practitioner, exposed me to how caring and thoughtful professionals could help me reach a better state of health. When I first entered the Practice I was unhealthy--and perhaps with a bit of middle aged malaise. Dr. Taylor and staff talked to me the way gifted athletic coaches talk to athletes. They inspired ME to be a big part of becoming more healthy--and they coached me how to get there. I never felt lectured or talked down to; I was treated like I mattered and they wanted to help. They put so much work into my care, that even when I was tempted, I resisted bad living habits because, if nothing else I didn't want to let them down. I know that sounds silly, but it's nice to have folks rooting for you that way. When I had a couple of respiratory challenges with asthma, allergies, and the flu, that office was on it--keeping me from getting worse--as I had always done before. They were like the landing at Normandy. I was given the proper medications and instructions to nip something in the bud before it worsened. I can't say enough how much it means just to feel like there's time to ask another question..or two..or three. Dr. Taylor would often say things like, Why didn't you call? That's why we're here. They're a great group. I can't rave enough.
