Specialties

Dr. David P Taylor has the following 3 specialties

  • Forensic Psychiatry
  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

A Criminal in Doctor's Clothing

Do not choose Dr. Taylor, he is not trustworthy. He is superficially charming but by your second visit you will start to realize that he lacks empathy, is reckless with his prescriptions and irresponsible. I went to him with a relatively minor problem - work stress was giving me stomach problems - and after suffering for two months of emotional/prescription abuse from him, I felt like I was having a breakdown. When I confronted him he quite flagrantly lied to me and then to UCLA CAPS to cover up his malpractice. Shortly after leaving his care I felt worlds better - I honestly feel lucky to have gotten out alive. Pick anyone but him! Dr. Taylor is a criminal in doctor's clothing.

Unsure

I have been seeing dr Taylor for a few years now. I have to agree he does care more about the pay check then his patients. However I have a great relationship with him and find him very easy to talk to. He's pretty much a quack
