  • About


    Dr. Taylor was born in Los Angeles, CA. He graduated from St. Anthony’s
    High School in Long Beach, CA. He began college at the United States Military
    Academy in West Point, New York and completed his undergraduate education
    at Howard University in Washington, DC. He started medical school with
    hopes of becoming a Pediatrician, but while performing research at Walter
    Reed Army Institute of Research decided to become a surgeon. He graduated
    from Howard University College of Medicine receiving numerous awards for
    leadership and community service, including an award for creating a program
    to provide physical exams and health education for all children enrolled
    in Head Start in Washington, DC. He completed residency at U.C. Davis-East
    Bay, Oakland, CA in general surgery. While in training, he focused on
    minimally invasive surgery and ultrasound. While in residency he gave
    numerous lectures about endocrine gland disorders and their surgical therapy.
    He was also featured on the television show “Trauma: Life in the
    E.R.” while he was the Trauma Team Chief at Highland Hospital, the
    busy, inner-city county hospital serving Oakland, CA.

    Upon completing his residency, he began a solo private practice in Baton
    Rouge, LA. His practice focus was minimally invasive surgery. He began
    the first Bariatric Surgery Program at Lane Regional Medical Center in
    Zachary, LA, a suburb of Baton Rouge.

    After nearly 10 years of solo practice, Dr. Taylor joined the Baton Rouge
    Clinic, the largest non-hospital affiliated multispecialty group in the
    state of Louisiana. Since joining this group, he created the Baton Rouge
    Clinic Bariatric Surgical Program.

    Dr. Taylor has held many positions on the medical staffs of the hospitals
    were he has practiced. He has been the Medical Director of the Bariatric
    Surgery Program, Chief of Surgery and Chief of Staff at Lane Regional
    Medical Center. He has served as Chief of General Surgery at both Our
    Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center and the Baton Rouge General Medical
    Center. He is also the Medical Director of the Bariatric Surgery Program
    of the Baton Rouge General Medical Center.

    During medical school, he met Yolunda Denise Johnson, a native of Greensburg,
    LA who was also a medical student at Howard. She received her undergraduate
    degree from LSU. They were married in 1996. His wife completed her residency
    in Obstetrics and Gynecology, at Kaiser Permanente Hospital, Oakland,
    CA. She is a partner in the group, Associates in Woman’s Health,
    practicing in Baton Rouge. They have 3 children.
