Specialties

Dr. Howard S Taylor has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Otolaryngology

    An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Doesnt care

Was put in room at appointment time, then waited 40 mintues while he dictated in next office. I could hear him through the wall. Told me that I had a problem, but he did not want to do anything. Told me that it is not the worst thing in life and I should learn to live with it. Arrogant and condescending attitude.

Good luck trying to get an appointment!

I've been seeing Dr. Taylor every 6 months for removal of wax from my ears. Not a life-threatening situation, to be sure! But my complaint is not with DR. Taylor. The problem is the staff. I've called numerous times, different times of the day, and each time the staff member answers, "Doctor's office, please hold". And I have held, and held, and held, until I get tired of holding, then I hang up. I'm looking for another doctor!!

Best EN&T Dr. in the USA

I have been a patient of Dr. Taylor's since 1980 and can not say enough about how great he is. He has done surgery twice on me. Once to remove Nasal Polyps that were restricting my airway in the mid 80's and a more extensive surgery that corrected my deveated septum as well as removed polyps. I have used a Nasal steroid spray since that time and have not needed any further operations since that last on done in 1994. He is more than the average Doctor. He made sure I was informed of everything he planned to do before and after the surgeries. Over the last 30 years I see him every few years for a check up. In 2002 he went out of his way to help me find a primary care doctor after being in a car accident and considered an MS suspect I could not find anyone that would help me. It just happened at that time I saw Dr Taylor for my regular checkup and he knew something was wrong. As soon as he found out the problem he had his office girls calling all the doctors he knew to find one that took my insurance. He recommended a doctor that I have used ever since. I consider him the best in the world. You will be get the best care possible if you call him.
