  • "Dr. Taymor is a highly competent pediatric physician who is thorough in his visits and never rushes us along. He listens to our concerns and to those of our child's, encouraging his direct participation and thus leaving his dignity intact. He is a wonderful practitioner with plenty of dry wit to spare. We respect that he is forthright and direct; you will get no superficial coddling here. He makes himself readily available to his patients and our family feels well supported by him and his friendly staff."

  • "We have recently moved from Norway and navigating a new health care system and finding new doctors for our family have been a challenge. We are fortunate to have found Dr Taymore,he listens to my concernes as a mother and takes them seriously. Most important, I am confident he operates in Benedicts best interest. I specifically appreciate that he follows up after our visits, offering availability should something come up and reassurance to us as parents."
    Benedict S.
  • "We discovered Dr. Taymor while pregnant with our first child and he helped us through so many first steps in our journey to parenthood. In our initial conversations and meetings with him he patiently answered all our questions and concerns and helped us navigate some of the early parenting medical decisions about which my husband and I were trying to reach agreement. When our little guy was born Dr. Taymor was a constant source of sanity, encouragement and guidance. We always felt our son was getting the best possible care with him. The most amazing part about being Dr. Taymor's patient is that he gives his patients his cell phone number to call in case of an urgent question or concern. There were a few times we had to use this number and it was an incredible relief to be able to reach him in a moment of stress or worry about our son's health. We have recently moved across the country and sincerely miss Dr. Taymor and his staff!"
