He headed to the big city of Providence, RI to study Neuroscience, East Asian Studies and Entrepreneurship at Brown University. Following graduation, his short-lived career in finance took him to Los Angeles, London and Tokyo, before he decided medicine was how he could directly help others who needed it the most. He attended the University of Pennsylvania where he developed a passion for health disparities, social justice and community medicine in West Philadelphia. As a medical student, he founded the nationally-recognized Cut Hypertension Program (www.cuthypertension.org), a blood pressure screening, education and referral program partnered with African American barbershops. He completed residency and chief residency at UCSF prior to joining the Stanford faculty and Stanford-Intermountain Fellowship in Population Health, Delivery Science, and Primary Care.

    Dr. Taylor is a family physician, researcher, implementer, activist and educator. He is excited about the potential for innovative care models, financing and technology to improve the health of underserved populations. He is also interested in HIV primary care, mentoring black men of color in medicine and medical education in community clinics. In addition to his primary care practice at Stanford Family Medicine, Dr. Taylor provides HIV, MAT and Hep C treatment at the Roots Community Health Center in East Oakland where he also leads the community health navigator program for complex care patients.

    For fulfillment outside of medicine, he loves being a new dad, plays the violin, travels, spends time outdoors and enjoys cooking with friends and family.
