Specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer.

Horrible bedside manner, lacks empathy, rushed and very dismissive

Dr. Taylor is a renowned dermatologist. This is the reason I initially scheduled an appointment. Her staff is very professional. However the doctor rushed through the 6-minute appointment. I was informed that I could ask 3 questions. She immediately wrote multiple prescriptions. The medications caused edema in my foot for several days and I was unable to wear a shoe. After the debacle with the medication, I developed horrible allergies for the 1st time in my life. I was totally shocked by her manner and discussed it with a friend. My friend had a similar experience. Dr. Taylor is very curt and dismissive. I would NEVER recommend her! I found another female dermatologist in the Maryland suburbs who is excellent. The drive is 2+ hours but definitely worth it!

Two Stars

It took some time to get an appointment even though I am a patient. Every now and than I have a flair up of my eczema. When I first went there a few years ago I saw her with her Physician's assistant. After that I only saw the physician's assistant which was fine with me. She was very knowledgeable. Later on I saw Dr. Taylor, I assumed the PA had left. Well, the wait in the waiting room was longer than I spent with Dr. Taylor. It was a whirlwind visit, nothing discussed, just looked at my skin, wrote a script and that was it. I did notice a sign in the treatment room that only a couple of questions can be asked at a visit. Her bedside manner is poor. Bottom line, I was not thrilled.

Best Dermatologist EVER!

She is an EXCELLENT dermatologist! I have never been to her for the same thing twice! Her bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired, but that’s fine with me. I need her expertise more than her manner, it would be nice to have them both. But if I had to xhoose between the two expertise wins by a long shot. Sometimes there is a little wait, but once you are in a room, she will “treat you” then “street you.” In other words she will have you in and out. I have never had a visit with her that last more than 10-15 minutes.

Misdiagnosed

Unfortunately, Dr. Taylor's t.v. image is nothing like her office image. Like others, I spent an hour waiting to be seen for a bump on the side of my face that I'd notice was continuing to grow. I am Africa American and because she is known for teating skin of color I figured I would see Dr. Taylor. She was in and out barely looking at my face or taking time to listen to my concerns. She just said leave it alone. Turns out, after going to a doctor down the street at Thomas Jefferson University Derm, I needed surgery. Had I left it alone it would have continued to grow. I think Dr. Taylor may be better at making TV appearances for cosmetics like creams, lotions etc., than diagnosing serious and complicated issues of the skin and that is in my opinion what she needs to stick to doing.
