The year 2015 marked Dr. Taylor-Cox’ s 30th year as a physician and it continues to be her honor and joy to care for children's medical needs. She was drawn to Pediatric medicine those many years ago because of the continuity of care it presents and she considers it a privilege to watch her patients grow and mature...many from birth to adulthood. In fact, it is her great delight to currently care for many second generation patients.
We are a direct primary care pediatric practice.
"Our family has been blessed with the love, care and compassion of Dr. Barbara Taylor-Cox for 22 years now. She is an excellent physician with a heart of gold! We first met her when our son was critically ill and had no definitive diagnosis. She literally wrapped her arms around us and walked us through every step of that challenging journey. During every family crisis and victory, she has been there, as a constant source of wisdom and love. She is our hero and we will forever be grateful for the gift she is to us all."
