Dr. Taylor grew up in Anchorage and graduated from Service High School. His interest in medicine led him to Michigan State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in physiology. He then went to the University of Washington Medical School where he earned his medical degree. He did his internship at the Providence Portland Medical Center in Portland before completed his Residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation back in Seattle.
Returning to Alaska after graduation in 2002, Dr. Taylor worked for Alaska Spine Institute — often referring patients to and coordinating care with Dr. James Eule at OPA — for over a decade. In 2014, Dr. Taylor became a certified independent medical examiner (CIME), and now is one of very few physicians in Alaska doing permanent partial impairment ratings (PPIs) for Worker Comp patients.

Today Dr. Taylor is part of the OPA family, working closely with all OPA physicians, providing patients with specialized electrodiagnostic medicine studies and acute pain management services.

He is currently Team Physician for the Dimond High School wrestling team, and has also volunteered his services as Game Physician for the Alaska Aces (2002) and Co-Team Physician for Service High School Football (2002).

Patient Testimonials

When I first saw Dr. Taylor, he determined my spine was stable and prescribed physical therapy as a beginning point. Best thing ever. I’ve been back twice since then after other injuries. He is a great listener and communicator. He does not rush to do the most drastic treatment, but leans toward building your own strength first. He presents treatment and it is discussed thoroughly with you. You know he cares about you. I am so fortunate to have found Dr. Taylor. He has kept me up and moving, doing the things I love, when I thought I wouldn’t be able to again.
