I have been seeing Dr. Taylor for a number of years. She gives me quality care with compassion and respect.


Dr. Taylor is awesome !!!!


Dr. Taylor was warm, welcoming and caring.


Good check-up and a good experience.


I had a very good experience.


Fantastic experience. Dr Taylor was not in a hurry. One of the best experiences I have ever had with a Dr.


She's the best. You need more like her.


Dr. Taylor was a joy to meet and appears to be an excellent dermatologist. This was my first visit with her.


*Dr. Taylor is great. It is just hard to get an appointment with her & I wait forever to see her.


Due to wait time & lack of time spent with Dr., also lack of information shared with me about possible choices I would NOT recommend this Dr.


Always good experience with this physician!


I have recommended doctor Taylor to many of my clients, and will continue to do so. She is very thorough and compassionate, on top of being brilliant and very easy to talk to. Excellent physician!


Dr. Taylor has treated me with respect and care on each visit and, most importantly, has provided me with relief from my illness which previous providers were unable to do so.


Dr. Taylor is an excellent communicator and a master at putting one at ease.


Either hire more docs on stop triple locking patients; I wanted to send WFBit a bill for the extra hour of my time this appt took UNACCEPTABLE!!


Dr. Sarah Taylor is friendly, warm, professional, high energy, instills confidence in her ability, is easy to talk to, has a great "bedside" manner, and seems to be a very competent physician. I really like and trust her as my Dermatologist!!!


Dr. Taylor is one of the most caring physicians I have every had. I give her 100%.


I LOVER HER!! Best doctor I've ever seen.


*Dr. Taylor is a hoot! I love her!


No problems at all.


Wonderful experience with Dr. Taylor. She is the kind of Doctor that I enjoy talking with and she has a wonderful personality.


Dr Taylor is very good with people. I would recommend her to others.


Like I stated previously, my visit was all highly positive and I look forward to returning. As a new patient, I had to wait to get an appointment with Dr. Taylor but she was well worth the wait. Best experience I have had with a doctor. She is wonderful.


Dr. Sarah Taylor is an excellent doctor


Dr. Taylor is the best!!


*Dr. Sarah is why my husband and I stayed here & drive over 45 minutes to office.


Dr Taylor is fantastic! Loved her! Highly recommend. She made me feel very comfortable about the procedure that I was nervous about.


I have extensive skin damage from too many years in the sun and Dr. Taylor has carefully monitored and treated my many basal cell growths and gotten me immediate access to herself or another available doctor when I have suspected more serious cancers. So far, so good. I have great confidence in both her and Wake Forest Baptist Dermatology Dept. Very calming to know ya'll are there.


Dr. Taylor and the resident are top-notch care providers.


Dr. Taylor is by far the best doctor I have ever had. In fact I really look forward to coming to see her. I have had dozens of doctors over the past 20 years and none of them came close to her.


Very good. See above comments.




very simple....Dr. Sarah Taylor sets the standard all doctors would be wise to follow.


Great doctor!


*Dr. Taylor is very confident and easy to talk to.


Dr. Taylor is one of the best physicians with whom I have consulted during my 77 year lifetime.


I am 77 years old. This doctor I rate high among the top ten doctors I have visited.


I am exceeding pleased with everything about this visit. Really! I do not report that lightly as I try to provide a realistic opinion to these kind of surveys. I can't remember giving another survey with only Very Good responses.


I can not say enought good things about Dr Sarah Taylor. My mother is 101 years old and she treated her like a loving mother would relate to her child. She is efficient and so careing. Mother thinks she is wonderful. I was with my mother for the visit and I saw this first hand. Dr Taylor even gave her a cup of coffee and me a soda while we waited for the numbing to take effect. Please keep he in that office.


I really like everyone I talked with.


so lucky to have Dr Taylor


*Dr. Sarah Taylor is the best dermatologist I've seen yet. Great personality and very nice too!!


By the time the doctor & resident saw me, I felt we were a little rushed due to the delays resulting from other patients. We had a fairly quick exam, then I was informed about the reason for my rash, follow-up visits with a vein doctor, care for my rash & medication prescribed for my treatment. I felt a little overwhelmed, since I was not expecting to be referred to yet another doctor (the vein doctor) for further related exam & treatment.


*Dr. Taylor was thorough; explained options for treatment; agreed to do it while I was there. PERFECT.


Good, but "a bit fast."




Dr. Taylor is a very caring, knowledgeable doctor who listens carefully to one's questions and concerns and then addresses them in a very professional manner.


I found Dr. Taylor to be an excellent care giver who paid a lot of attention to my problem. Her diagnosis was spot on and the recommended treatment has been successful.


The excellent care given by Dr. Taylor caused my wife to make an appointment with her. My wife did not have a dermatologist here in Winston- Salem area.


She is excellent!!!


*Dr. Taylor came to the rescue and really helped me out. She's great.


overall excellent experience!!


I am relaxed and at ease with the doctor. I feel confident in her care and can communicate freely.


I have never had a bad experience in this office


Only reason last question was answered with a 4 is because even though I would recommend Dr. Taylor to someone looking for a dermatologist, I would warn that person of the wait time at the clinic.


Dr. Taylor & Staff are excellent
