Dr Taylor is a Board Certified Internal Medicine MD who closed his solo Internal Medicine primary care clinic Oct 1, 2015 and is pursuing semi-retirement. The new Eagle Sweep clinic has gone virtual with Friday clinics most weeks with the following services:

Internal Medicine consultation
Transgender transition care

Eagle medicine protectionand ongoing appointments for alternative integrative care utilizing Energy

He has enjoyed almost 30 years of intense Internal Medicine practice in a variety of settings. He has provided care in very rural sites where he was the only doctor in Alaska, Hawaii, migrant clinic California, tribal clinics in WA and Oklahoma. He spent 7 years with the Pima Tohono O’odham tribe outside of Phoenix, AZ in the 1990s, leaving there in 1999 as their CMO (chief medical officer) and member of the governing board to return to his home town, Bremerton, WA. Here, he was with Kitsap Internal Medicine until 2008 when he decided to open the solo practice.

Dr Taylor has been a single parent raising his two children here in Kitsap County and enjoys his extended family and community here. Now that his adult children are off to their own pursuits, he can indulge in a more flexible schedule to include travel and assisting under served communities at tribal/Indian Health Service sites and other clinics. This is why some services at Eagle Sweep clinic are limited, to provide consultations of benefit to our community, yet still provide services to other communities in need, and some vacation time for the doc.
