Dr. Taylor is one of my favorite providers. She is always kind, understanding and very attentive.




Dr. Sara Taylor is one of the BEST physicians I have had the pleasure to meet. She's down to earth, does not talk in circles, takes time with her patients. Just always a pleasant visit


Dr. Taylor is a jewel.


Will gladly recommend Dr. Taylor to friends.


Dr. Taylor always demonstrates care and compassion to me as a patient. Always professional and at the same time applies appropriate humor that leaves one feeling so much better about one's self. A great role model for interns.


well done!


Privider excellent. Took the time to access. Helpful. Honesty. Liked her better than previous one.


I do not understand why Dr. Sarah Taylor is never in the top 100 Physicians at Wake Forest Baptist. She deserves to be recognized for her outstanding bedside manner, the expertise in thorough skin checks and treatment, her cheerfulness, and most importantly making each of her patients feel special. I would not trust any of the other physicians there to treat me. She knows when I have a concern about a skin lesion that it needs to be taken care of which in turn keeps it from becoming a bigger issue later on.


Very good.


I love them so much because they are very kind to me ( the nurse and the Doctor).


Dr. Taylor is one of the best! The resident, Christine, was also very skilled and knowledgeable of the treatment I received.


Dr Taylor is very kind and thorough.


I loved the new App for finding the products that I use and if they contain allergens that I am allergic to. It really made a difference!


This was my first office visit at this clinic. MD was amazing and very thorough. She answered all my questions clearly and concisely, and put my mind at ease knowing my issues would be resolved with a quick plan of care.


Dr Taylor is always up to date with treatment information and very optimisstic with results of treatment. She takes the time to listen to latest concerns. she is also available on line with any questions or needs I have between visits


I like the doctor. She was very nice and easy to talk to.


Excellent experience! Always so friendly and caring. Explains carefully. Discusses choices. Such a knowledgeable provider!


Dr. Taylor treated me with respect and care and worked collaboratively with me to figure out the next steps with an unusual and new-for-me condition. I trust her. Residents were also very clear and competent.


stated earlier. The best


Sarah is the absolute BEST


*Dr. Taylor is very personable & compassionate.


Dr Taylor is exceptional!


Dr. Taylor is a wonderful caring physician! The very best!!


already recommended to a friend who has an upcoming appointment


Dr. Sarah Taylor meets all of my expectations of a knowledgeable, caring and gracious care provider. Dr. Sarah Taylor is a true professional that is able to make you feel better about yourself after being seen by her.


In my estimation, Dr. Taylor is one of the finest physicians that I have been to see. I was very sick when I went to see her for the first time time.She and her staff took very old care of me. She kept me there for nearly 3 hours and Came in and out to make sure she did everything she could for me. In subsequent visits for light therapy, she found me to just check to see how I was doing even though we didn't need have a scheduled appointment. I have no fear or worry about being treated by Dr. Taylor and trust that what she recommends is best for me.


Dr. Taylor is terrific. She is thorough, responsive to my (many) questions, and clearly loves her work. She is also very good with interns and others who are there to observe, very professional and also personable.


always the best in all problems.


Sara Taylor was extremely nice and inelegance ad spent a lot of time with me even though it was very late at night. very good and a very patient Dr


Excellent doctor in knowledge, manner, and interest in my well being


We are extremely pleased with Dr. Taylor!


great doctor, just very little face time so many questions were unanswered. I got a sheet to read at home and then left.


Providers should be "listeners" - showing confidence in patient's concerns - provider too busy talking about self and impacting irrelevant information to the squad of others in the room.


Love Dr. Taylor, very knowledgeable, professional and awesome personality.


Dr. Taylor is always wonderful. She is very thorough and truly cares about her patients.


Dr. Taylor is one of the best doctors I've ever had


*Dr. Taylor is AWESOME!!


Dr. Taylor takes my skin cancer concerns serious. Other doctors there never really did. Then when I pushed the issue we would find out it was a BC or Squamous. I only trust her.


Phenomenal customer service


all good


Very good experience.


I have mentioned my comments before. Dr. Taylor is excellent provider. I am very satisfied.


dr. Taylor a wonderful Wake Forest position and I would recommend her to anyone.


she was very engaging. I enjoyed meeting her.


Dr. Taylor is consistently an excellent physician who has always been a physician that I enjoyed for treatment .


Dr. Sarah Taylor exceeded my expectations in every category. She is an amazing physician who genuinely cares for her patients. I have already recommended her to friends. I'm so delighted that she is my dermatologist. She is a credit to Wake Forest Baptist Health.


I felt a bit rushed.


Dr Sarah Taylor is absolutely one of the best doctors in her field. Her ability to connect with patients, her expertise and knowledge is unquestionable WFBMC is blessed to have Dr. Sarah Taylor on their staff at the Dermatology Clinic.


Absolutely the BEST....


Dr. Taylor addressed all of my concerns, even though the clinic was very busy. She validated my problems, even though they were primarily cosmetic. I look forward to returning to her and referring my friends. It was worth the 8 months that I waited for my appt!!


Dr. Taylor was very friendly and knowledgeable. I was pretty nervous and she explained what she was going to be doing and really assured me that this visit was going to be the highlight of my day, and really made me feel more relaxed and calm. Her "bedside manner" is EXCELLENT. I have already recommended her to one of my friends. She is one of my favorite Drs.


Dr Taylor, is awesome and knowledgeable. Always a great experience.


Dr. Taylor is a very good Doctor. I trust her judgement.


I have had NO bad experience with Dr Taylor or any of the staff. always the best care.


Dr. Taylor is outstanding.


*Dr. Taylor is always excellent! I've had 3 skin cancers removed. She checks me annually for any suspicious moles. She is very thorough.


Dr Taylor was excellent, could highly recommend her. She is an asset to Wake Forest Baptist Health!


Dr. Sarah Taylor is very caring and compassionate doctor. I've been to other Dermatologist there and they do not take me seriously when I notice changes in skin lesions. Then after numerous trips they finally remove the lesion only to find out it was a BC. Dr. Taylor takes me serious and knows that I know my skin well enough and the changes in places I'm concerned about. She's the only one I would trust to go to. She truly cares about me and takes the best care of me too. You need more like her in that Derm Practice.


I have never received better care.


great dr


I have already recommended her to many friends and family!


Cannot imagine a better dermatologist. She is professional while being caring, concerned, friendly, and just a wonderful human being and so smart. We love her. She is also funny and makes you look forward to going to a doctor's office. Imagine that!!




Dr. Taylor is a wonderful provider. The visit for this survey was cosmetic, but I also see her for medical visits. She is always bubbly friendly, caring, compassionate, and makes me feel important. Despite a very large and busy practice, she always manages to make it feel small and intimate. I have 100% confidence in her opinion as my medical provider and feel so lucky I've found her!


Excellent including the Resident, Seth!


If there's anything past "very good" to describe my level of confidence, Dr. Taylor would meet that standard.


Dr Taylor is perfect. I have recommended both her and the staff to several people all of whom have gone there as a result.


Dr. Taylor is excellent at thoroughly answering questions and spemding a lot ot time with me. I truly appreciate that.


Dr. Taylor is the best dermatologist I have ever had and I have been to several. She is worth the long wait for an appointment.


Dr. Taylor has my utmost confidence. Yes, I would like more time but know she is on a tight schedule and appreciate that she focuses on what needs to be done in the allotted time.
