“After struggling with coccyx pain since the birth of my daughter, I went to see Mr Taylor. I simply can't rate the experience highly enough. Along with his assistant Julia, they were an efficient, kind, and helpful team! I had a fast initial diagnosis, a same day confirmation after MRIs/x-rays, and an extremely helpful injection procedure. Everything about the experience was truly perfect. Thank you, Mr Taylor!“

I have been seeing Mr Taylor for many years and every visit to him and every surgery he performs is excellent. He is an outstanding consultant who explains everything and no questions are too much trouble for him. His bedside manner is kind and professional . I personally would always go to Mr Taylor for any spinal problems as I have only ever received an excellent service with him. And he has always solved my spinal problem

After 4 frustrating months at the hands of the NHS with groin pain I consulted Dr John Stephens, Private GP at the Platinum Medical Centre at the Wellington. He referred me to Mr Taylor. An MRI scan revealed a tiny ganglion touching a spinal nerve and after two courses of spinal injections under general anaesthetic over a period of four weeks the pain disappeared, needless to say with enormous relief.

Mr Taylor is a very professional surgeon, he new exactly what he was doing and explained every inch of the way on what I was about to have done. From the first meeting to the last meeting 12 months down the line after surgery everything was a very smooth journey. I couldn't be happier with the results. If I ever had to have my procedure done again, I would contact Mr Taylor without hesitation.

Mr Taylor correctly and quickly diagnosed my spinal problem. He expertly ran me through the X-ray and MRI images with clear and understandable precision. His prognosis and choice of treatments was equally clear and understandable. I followed and agreed his suggested treatment and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.

I found Mr. Taylor to be very professional. He immediately diagnosed my condition and suggested two options that might/could solve my condition. I opted for the non surgical procedure (which I understood may not provide permanent improvement) My choice. I will certainly continue to consult with Mr Taylor in the future if needed.

Following a freak accident 31 years ago I now suffer from degenerate disc disease and have known Mr Taylor for many years. He has carried out major spinal surgery and procedures on my spine in the past with much success. Mr Taylor is the only spinal surgeon that I have utmost confidence and trust in. He always investigates symptoms thoroughly and explains possible corrective procedures in great detail. He is generous with his time and will always answer as many patient questions as required. Mr Taylor is an expert in his field and I cannot recommend him enough.
