    Dr. Taylor was one of the best providers I've seen, unlike other providers I've seen at OHSU Dr. Taylor listened, and listened to my concerns and listened to the patient, to me. And then provided his thoughts and feedback but first he listened and then provided his feedback and asked if I had any further questions or thoughts and he listens. He is a very good doctor and I think the world of him and I would recommend him to family, friends or people I don't even know. He is excellent. You are lucky to have him.
