Great Doctor, he's truly one best in his field and also caring. What I loved the most was my post operation care....he answered all questions and worries which made my recovery so smooth.

I had a tumor removed from my colon on the 19th Jan 2023. Dr Taylor was very informative about how every thing went, Dr Taylor gave me the best care possible, 30th March I returned to have my Stoma bag removed, Dr Taylor was on duty that weekend and he made sure to see me and check on my recovery every day. Dr Taylor and Wits Donald Gordon was the best and correct decision I made for my surgery. Thank you Dr Taylor

Like all of these things ones opinion depends a lot on the outcome. The procedure on myself went exactly as planned and described and was in my layman's opinion world-class.

When you are diagnosed with cancer, it leaves you feeling helpless. Dr Taylor and his team at the Colorectal Unit gave us exception service, and really put their hearts into making my father-in-law feel valued by their amazing bedside manner. The stay at Wits Donald Gordon Medical Centre was a very pleasant experience, with friendly and helpful staff showing their care and concern. Thank you for your kindness and for such a successful operation.
