    well done!

  • 4/4/2018

    Privider excellent. Took the time to access. Helpful. Honesty. Liked her better than previous one.

  • 4/3/2018

    I do not understand why Dr. Sarah Taylor is never in the top 100 Physicians at Wake Forest Baptist. She deserves to be recognized for her outstanding bedside manner, the expertise in thorough skin checks and treatment, her cheerfulness, and most importantly making each of her patients feel special. I would not trust any of the other physicians there to treat me. She knows when I have a concern about a skin lesion that it needs to be taken care of which in turn keeps it from becoming a bigger issue later on.

  • 3/25/2018

    Very good.

    already recommended to a friend who has an upcoming appointment

  • 1/15/2018

    In my estimation, Dr. Taylor is one of the finest physicians that I have been to see. I was very sick when I went to see her for the first time time.She and her staff took very old care of me. She kept me there for nearly 3 hours and Came in and out to make sure she did everything she could for me. In subsequent visits for light therapy, she found me to just check to see how I was doing even though we didn't need have a scheduled appointment. I have no fear or worry about being treated by Dr. Taylor and trust that what she recommends is best for me.

  • 1/15/2018

    Dr. Taylor is terrific. She is thorough, responsive to my (many) questions, and clearly loves her work. She is also very good with interns and others who are there to observe, very professional and also personable.

  • 12/19/2017

    great doctor, just very little face time so many questions were unanswered. I got a sheet to read at home and then left.

  • 12/19/2017

    Providers should be "listeners" - showing confidence in patient's concerns - provider too busy talking about self and impacting irrelevant information to the squad of others in the room.

    Dr. Taylor was very friendly and knowledgeable.

  • 8/17/2017

    Dr Taylor was excellent, could highly recommend her. She is an asset to Wake Forest Baptist Health!

  • 8/15/2017

    Dr. Sarah Taylor is very caring and compassionate doctor. I've been to other Dermatologist there and they do not take me seriously when I notice changes in skin lesions. Then after numerous trips they finally remove the lesion only to find out it was a BC. Dr. Taylor takes me serious and knows that I know my skin well enough and the changes in places I'm concerned about. She's the only one I would trust to go to. She truly cares about me and takes the best care of me too. You need more like her in that Derm Practice.
