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!

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.
