Dr. Taylor is a relatively new doctor – if you consider 10+ years of post graduate work to be “new”. I found Dr. Taylor to be the best kind of surgeon; one that is up to date and extremely technically proficient but also having a very warm, patient and communicative bedside manner. What more could you ask for in a surgeon.  I had arthroscopic knee surgery for damaged cartilage from years of running. I felt that Dr. Taylor did a very thorough analysis of my situation and presented me with all of the options – including not having surgery. He gave me realistic expectations for what my surgery could fix and what it could not. He appraised me of potential risks so that I felt fully informed as I made my decision to have surgery. Fortunately, none of those risks occurred. The surgery and my recovery went very smoothly. Dr. Taylor was as attentive post operatively as he was when I initially met him.  While I hope not to need any additional surgery, I would certainly return to Dr. Taylor if necessary and would confidently recommend him to others.

I suffered a right shoulder dislocation with socket fracture. It was a real douse. I cracked nearly 30% of my socket. I was dreading surgery, but once I got to the hospital I was put at ease. The whole process was a lot easier than I imagined. Dr. Taylor was able to repair and stabilize my shoulder all through a scope with only a few poke holes in my skin. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Taylor to anyone with a bad shoulder injury. To that end, I just played golf for the first time in nearly 4 months since surgery. I had absolutely no issues with the shoulder. In fact, I scored one of my best rounds ever. Dr. Taylor will improve your golf game!!

Dr. Taylor and the rest of the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Additionally, they are so friendly that you feel at home the minute you walk into their office. In the future, the only doctor I would see for orthopedic issues is Dr. Taylor. My shoulder already feels 100% better from Dr. Taylor’s treatment after only a few months.

Thank you Dr. Taylor, Kerry, and all the wonderful people at HSS for getting me walking by the start of our trip to Sicily! Without you, I would never have made it to the top of all these steps!

The office staff was very welcoming when I showed up for the appointment.  Dr. Taylor was very patient with me when I was telling him about my pain and symptoms.  He was thorough and discussed all available treatment options with me.  Dr. T’s passion for providing the highest quality patient care is very reassuring and not only would I see Dr. Taylor again; I would highly recommend other patients to see him.

Dr. Taylor immediately put me at ease by communicating in understandable medical terms, in-depth description and diagnosis of my shoulder injury, prescribed treatment and a warm, friendly, professional manner. HSS is the best of the best, and Dr. Samuel Taylor exceeded my highest expectation.
