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.

9/13/2017

I felt a bit rushed.

9/13/2017

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.

9/6/2017

Absolutely the BEST....

8/31/2017

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!!

8/30/2017

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.

8/15/2017

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.
