Specialties

Dr. Harold Taylor has the following 2 specialties

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Worse Dr

Spent 8 hrs in the ER with him as attending physician. My mother was brought in by ambulance. She weak, unable to stay awake, disoriented, unable to stand. Blood was drawn & 2 hrs later we were told by nurse he had results & would be in shortly. 7 hrs later nurse returned and said we were good to go. Never did she even see the Dr & was only given 1 bag of iv fluid while there. Her bp was 70/30, urine was dark brown...and they discharged her. I loaded her up and took her to another hospital, she was quickly admitted.

I waited in the ER for 11 hours before Dr. Taylor ca me up with a diagnosis. I had to go through the nursed to get updates on what was going on. During the 11 hours that I was there, I only saw Dr. Taylor 3 times. Once when I first arrived, another about 3 hours after that and the final was at the 11th hour to give me diagnostic information. The diagnosis that he gave was different from that of the actual surgeon.

Incompetent, uncaring, arrogant POS

My mom was brought in for chest pain. She was in a little pain, But after being given a few medication, it got much much worse. I went to the the nurse three time explaining that my mom, who never cries or complains is crawling off the bed in pain and crying. I asked for the doc (Dr. Harold Taylor). When he came out, I pleaded with him to give her something for pain and he asked what I wanted him to do! I said "help stop her pain! She didn't have this much pain until you gave her meds. He said "I'm not going to stand here and have you talk to me like this." And he left. I called the house supervisor and come to find out, The idiot, Dr Harold should have ordered morphine 30 minutes ago!!!! So disappointing that we have Drs like this one in medicine.

ER visit with my daughter suffering from severe allergic reaction

When I took my daughter to the ER, Dr Taylor immediately began assessing the situation while doing all possible to make her comfortable. I was amazed at how wonderful his bedside manner was considering we were not at a children's hospital. He tried to keep the mood light with her, while handling the situation seriously with the necessary shots and breathing treatments. He is an excellent doctor!

this Dr. was visited on an emergency basis by a post bone marrow transplant patient on Christmas evening. She was visiting her family in Longview for the holidays and she stared feeling bad and running fever. After a call to her oncologist she followed his instructions to go to the facility she could quickest get into and see a doctor. He sent her with instructions to request certain test and certain meds and requested that the Dr.seeing her call him.She followed his instructions to the leter and the Dr. she saw was Harold Taylor at Longview Regional Medical Center. When she told him what she was sent for and what she needed him to do his response was " yeah and need a hamburger with cheese and pickles " and then walked out and never returned. She was released by the staff. What an uncaring person. He should not be allowed to have face to face contact with any patient. This patient could have been in grave danger. She has aplastic anemia and no immune system.
