Ratings for Dr. Alastair Taylor
From the moment I had my first phone call to walking out of The CAPS Clinic after my 6 month review, I was 100% happy and totally satisfied I had made the right choice. Dr Taylor and all the staff at The CAPS Clinic are extremely professional, informative and above all, welcoming. I felt at ease through the entire process and could not be happier with my results. I would recommend The CAPS Clinic to anyone considering cosmetic surgery, skin/laser treatments, skin cancer checks or injectables. Thank you CAPS Clinic
Words could not express my gratitude of Dr Taylor and his staff unbelievable help and assistance before the procedure and after also. The care that they take and understanding each patients pain threshold. Very thankful of everything they have done for me. My scars are healing beautifully and Dr Taylor's attention to detail I would go no where else again but to him. I had done a lot of research before choosing him and I am so glad with my choice I recommend him to everyone who asks without hesitation. Zhi
I have just had my third and final reconstructive and cosmetic surgery completed by Dr Taylor and his team. I decided to write this review as I feel it is imperative that possible clients get a realistic sense of what Taylor and his staff are up to. Dr Taylor is very realistic in his approach to dealing with people. He is a scientist, a specialist and a craftsman. He advises patients on what is possible, and what is not, offers his professional opinion (backed by decades of experience) and stands his ground. Dr. Taylor and his team rebuilt my very broken body, he was upfront, honest and passionate about his craft. If you are considering going down this route, see him as part of your research. Listen and understand his feedback and review your expectations with the information in mind. Good Luck. Their post operative review starts whilst you are still at the hospital, then the day after you return home, then face-to-face within a fortnight and then again within 3 months. Would not go anywhere else.
I had an abdominoplasy by Dr Taylor recently and I can honestly say he is the best in the world bar none! I haven't seen every surgeon in the world's results but I have seen a great many, as a very experienced plastic surgery nurse. I have worked with many in Australia and have seen many results from overseas. Experience has taught me that some people can never be pleased, no matter how perfect the results. I believe that if Dr Taylor can't fix something, no one can. Some people scar badly, have bad genes or are not very healthy. This is not his fault! He is compassionate, dedicated and I really love his honesty without the ridiculous fluff. His long study and research into his own functional abdominoplasy technique is absolutely ground breaking and he certainly deserves recognition for this. He is a brilliant and extremely talented surgeon and certainly has my respect. At least my opinion is a qualified one. I will definitely be back for the face part of my make -over. Samantha Evans
I had breast implants with Dr Taylor and it wasn't a great experience. Very poor after service and they didn't seem to care at all about me. I'm now going to Sydney to get the job corrected. Very disappointed
Not only is Doctor Taylor amazing and his attention to detail is excellent and walks you through every step of the procedure before and after making me extremely confident in his abilities. His staff are also the very best I have ever come across, the clinic is so friendly and inviting and I would highly recommend to everyone!!
As per below this doctor has the worst bed side manner and people skills I have ever experienced in my entire life. He made my elderly mother feel like she didnt matter. Perhaps he treats the younger boob job patients with more respect than I observed today. Out of respect for my Mother i decided to take a deep breath and let the consultation continue. I have sinced complained to the referring GP and intend on seeking a private discussion with Alastair. His rudeness and flippant interaction with my mother was so discriminating to the erlderly that I think he needs to be reeducated in how to treat patients. If i had the authority I would strike him off any register that saw him deal with patients. Alastair remember these people are referred to you for PROFESSIONAL AND COMPASSIONATE consultations. Please do remember you will grow old and you may just meet yourself later in life. I hope your mother wasnt treated the way you treated my mother during her vistit to you. I only hope that your poor behaviour isnt bestowed upon any other elderly patients. My wife who always spoke highly of the service others provide her from uour clinic is so appalled by this that she will no longer be using your Canberra based clinic from this point forward. You should be ashamed of your self righteousness.
Sorry to say that he has the worst bed side manner I have experienced in a long time. Arrogant and acted like we were wasting his time even though I had a carcinoma finding after a biopsy. Gave me the worst advice. Second caring professional opinion said it would have progressed if I had taken his advice. Not really interested in skin cancers unless you want to chop them out and even then I would not trust that he would be really interested. All gloss and some very lovely people working behind the scenes but he thinks too much of himself.
As I look back at my experience I feel compelled to let you know as well as others, just how much I appreciate not just the care, but also the "inviting" atmosphere of all the staff at the CAPS Clinic. You complement each other in making patients feel comfortable and cared for. I was aware of the professional work you do, but to have such pleasant conditions was a welcome bonus. I am truly thankful for so many aspects of my experience with you and your entire staff that I really do not know where to begin. So I will start with the part that I am most excited about... my results! I am currently 8 weeks post-op and am beyond thrilled with how much it has helped by back pain and also my shape. My results have exceeded even my highest expectations. Of course, the end result is just part of the story when it comes to having surgery. I am most grateful for the unparalleled kindness, patience and warmth, which put me at ease, calmed my jittery nerves, and has made me feel completely comfortable each step of the way. Prior to the surgery, you listened carefully to my preferences regarding outcome. Post-op anytime I've had a concern or question you've made time for me - even on short notice. The sensitivity and support from you and your fine staff helped me through what was a very difficult time when I came out of surgery, you kept your surgery operating an extra night and day to accommodate my personal needs and I will never forget the kindness of your staff putting themselves forward for an extra shift to assist me. You met with my husband outside of work to provide him with a prescription for medication for me to alleviate my pain, you and Cheryl both spoke with my physiotherapist Dave Berg from Movehappy Health Care Centre at the drop of a hat whenever there were any concerns with my recovery. There is so much more that I could list and it was all over and above what I ever thought a surgeon would ever take the time to do. You have the most amazing staff. From the front desk all the way through to the nurses who are always upbeat and reassuring. It's so clear that they really care about their patients. All the ladies were so patient explaining all the pre and post-op instructions, calmly answering each of my questions with the utmost knowledge and competence. And it doesn’t stop when you leave as staff even called to check on me at home during my recovery. The CAPS Clinic is blessed with kind & compassionate staff. I have never seen a greater group of caring people; you are all the prize of the medical profession. The personal attention to your patients, your skills and professionalism, in my view, are just some of the outstanding traits that put you far above any other surgery in Canberra. To see a negative comment on this forum about Dr Taylor is besotting to me and just shows me that envy and jealousy still prompts back-biting from unhappy people that are dissatisfied with their own lives. Manufacturing a false spoken statement to damage a person's reputation is not going to help yours. Once again, thank you so much for everything. The experience was great, the results were greater, and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone in the future.
