Dr. Taylor was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado and attended University of Rochester in New York where he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree while completing his Master of Arts Degree in Gerontology from the University of Chicago. He then moved to Boston where he obtained his M.D. from Tufts
University School of Medicine. From there, he completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center at the University of Chicago and his Gastroenterology fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Hospital.
In 1997 Dr. Taylor co-founded Gastroenterology Center of Connecticut and Endoscopy Center of Connecticut. He also served as Chief of Gastroenterology at Milford Hospital from 1999-2001. Dr. Taylor is also Editor-in-Chief and contributing author of two major Gastroenterology textbooks, titled Gastrointestinal Emergencies that have been translated into Chinese and are still recommended textbooks in many Gastroenterology training programs.
Dr. Taylor had a vision to preserve private practice in our community, and starting in 2010, he organized a multi-specialty group of physicians who joined together with our own GCC to form Physicians Alliance of CT (PACT). PACT is a vertically integrated multi-specialty group that works to help doctors prepare for the changes that are occurring in medicine so private practice physicians can continue to give our patients the attention and care they deserve. PACT went live in the fall of 2013 and Dr. Taylor is Chairman of the Board.
He is featured in the Cambridge edition of “Who’s Who”.
Dr. Taylor has been chosen as a “Top Doc” with Connecticut Magazine for the past 8 consecutive years, including 2016, and selected as one of the “Best Doctors in America” for 21 consecutive years including 2016.
The thing he is most proud of is his family. In May 2016 there will be a third Dr. Taylor when his daughter graduates from UPenn School of Veterinary Medicine and will be doing a private practice internship in Virginia. His other daughter became Dr. Taylor in 2014 when she graduated from George Washington University School of Medicine and she is now doing a pathology residency at UPenn and has been accepted for a derma-pathology fellowship at UPenn starting in 2017. He is very proud of his son as well who is an undergraduate at the University of Connecticut hoping to study health care law. His wife is a clinical psychologist. Dr. Taylor is very proud of his entire family.
