  • 6/20/2018

    Great provider. Friendly, caring.

  • 6/20/2018

    Dr Taylor is extremely capable. She is very professional and also very caring. She is confident too - I like that - she knows what she is doing and it's reassuring. I have recommended Dr Taylor to a number of associates and they are now patients as a result. I have never had a physician, any type, in whom I have had more confidence, more trust than with Dr Taylor. I am fortunate to have her as a healthcare provider.

  • 5/31/2018

    could not say anything but the best for Dr. Taylor and staff

    Will gladly recommend Dr. Taylor to friends.

  • 4/11/2018

    Dr. Taylor always demonstrates care and compassion to me as a patient. Always professional and at the same time applies appropriate humor that leaves one feeling so much better about one's self. A great role model for interns.

  • 4/6/2018

    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.

  • 1/22/2018

    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.

  • 1/15/2018

    Dr. Sarah Taylor meets all of my expectations of a knowledgeable, caring and gracious care provider. Dr. Sarah Taylor is a true professional that is able to make you feel better about yourself after being seen by her.

  • 1/9/2018

    We are extremely pleased with Dr. Taylor!

  • 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.

    Love Dr. Taylor, very knowledgeable, professional and awesome personality.

    Dr. Taylor takes my skin cancer concerns serious. Other doctors there never really did. Then when I pushed the issue we would find out it was a BC or Squamous. I only trust her.

  • 10/16/2017

    Phenomenal customer service
