Now, 47 years later, he's back at Macon County General Hospital to offer general surgery services to the citizens of Macon County.
"My father worked for Tri-County Electric," he said. "When I was 6-years-old, we got transferred to Scottsville so I grew up in Scottsville."
Dr. Taylor graduated from Allen County High School in Scottsville in 1982.
He then graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1986 and from the University of Kentucky in 1990, when he received his medical degree.
"I finished my residency in general surgery in 1996 at Eisenhower Medical Center in Augusta, Ga.," said Dr. Taylor.
Dr. Taylor attended medical school on a military scholarship. He served as a major in the United States Army and completed his military commitment in 1999.
In that same year, he started his own practice in the Nashville and Hendersonville areas.
He has since added two more doctors to his practice.
Dr. Taylor will be at Macon County General Hospital the second and third Tuesday of each month.
He will offer general surgery services that will expand the surgical options offered to patients at Macon County General such as laparoscopic surgery, endoscopy, breast surgeries, surgeries for skin cancers, and hernia repairs, as well as other types of major abdominal surgery, such as surgery for colon cancer.
"I kind of became interested in coming up here for a couple of reasons. One was that I was born here. Also, some of the other doctors I work with in Hendersonville have been successful in seeing patients here," he said.
