Very good experience


I can ask any questions & they will answer them


Dr. Sarah Taylor surpasses excellent. Wake Forest Baptist Health is fortunate to have her on the staff. At 61yrs old I've seen my share of doctors over the years and Sarah Taylor is at the top of the list as one of the finest well rounded doctors in the field.


I have been seeing Dr. Taylor for many years. I have the utmost respect and confidence in her.


She will go out of her way to help.


Very pleased & a feeling of care in my problems.


Awesome, caring, kind. She understands my concerns for skin cancers and never questions me like the other dermatologist there.


Dr. Taylor was perfect! While my problem was not life threatening, it was painful and embarrassing. Dr. Taylor was very thorough and immediately put me at ease.


Dr. Taylor is gifted with a personality that is both cheerful and professional. Leaves one feeling better about themselves when they leave the office than they did when they first arrived.


All was very good.


All very good!


Excellent visit.


Very knowledgeable & friendly staff.


I loved Dr. Taylor. I felt she really listened and considered what I was saying. I have recommended her to friends and coworkers and will use her services again.

I think Sarah Taylor is the best I recommended her to others in my family


Two physicians saw me at this visit:Dr Christine Anh and Dr Taylor. I was very impressed with the care and time they both took with examining me and diagnosing me. Wonderful , fine physicians!


would recommend Dr Taylor but would caution whoever the wait time to see her in clinic is not good.


Great dr.

Dr Taylor is an excellent physician. She is caring,and takes time to listen to your needs. Wonderful bedside manor!


Sarah Taylor is by far the best doctor I have ever seen. She is nice, respectful, and funny. She seems down to earth and she is very easy to talk to about any problems I'm having with my medication or my condition. I am not afraid to ask her questions like I am with a lot of other doctors that I've seen, because she seems very caring and shows genuine concern for her patients. I have recommended her to others several times already.


I have recommended this provider a number of times. Dr. Taylor is very capable and she is always appropriately concerned and always takes the time to explain thoroughly. Her experience shows. She knows exactly what to do and how to do it. I sincerely appreciate the level of care she provides.


Excellent physician, wish someone had told me at the outset that my wait time would be over an hour.


Dr. Taylor is top-notch; a very competent specialist.


Very friendlyh & knowledgeable.




one of the best doctors yet. she was very nice and truly caring


The doctor provider the best care and was enjoyable.


Dr. Taylor has helped me tremendously while treating me with respect and dignity. She has, through her analysis and treatment of my situation, provided great relief from a condition that has troubled me since the 1980s. For the first time since then, I am free of the boils and other glandular secretions that caused me considerable distress. She is the best of the best!


I enjoy my visits with Dr. Taylor.

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.
