Dr. Mark B. Taylor is a board-certified gastroenterologist who has practiced in the New Haven area for 23 years. He graduated from Tufts University School of Medicine and completed his gastroenterology training at Harvard’s Beth Israel Hospital. He is editor-in-chief of two major gastrointestinal textbooks and has been selected as a Connecticut “Top Doc” for the past 17 years.
Dr. Taylor is one of the founders and managing partners of Gastroenterology Center of Connecticut. GCC opened the first freestanding endoscopy suite in Connecticut in 1998, located in Hamden. An additional endoscopy center opened in Guilford; both state-of-the-art-centers use new high-definition equipment with anesthesia for pain-free procedures. In addition to endoscopy, Dr. Taylor has overseen the implementation of technological innovations including capsule endoscopy and breath testing.
In 2010 he spearheaded a charitable effort whereby GCC physicians provided free colonoscopies to dozens of patients who could not afford the procedure due to loss of jobs or insurance. This has been a great success and is being offered again this year.
When Dr. Taylor established the group more than 14 years ago, there were three doctors and eight employees. GCC has grown to include 14 specialty-trained gastroenterologists, a pathologist, a dietician, 10 physician assistants/nurse practitioners and more than 110 supporting staff members. In addition to colon cancer screening, GCC offers expert consultative services and treatments for virtually all gastrointestinal, pancreatic and liver conditions and has a very active research division conducting studies in ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and liver disease.
Major renovations are under way at GCC, with an emphasis on continuing the commitment to patient-centered service. Recent upgrades in the electronic medical- record system will further improve the ability to communicate with other physicians, enhance medical information accuracy and confidentiality, and allow prescriptions to be sent to virtually any pharmacy instantly.
Dr. Taylor says he is blessed to work with such a wonderful and compassionate staff, committed to providing “sophisticated medical care, close to home, in a warm and caring environment.”
