Perth Rheumatologist Dr Taylor
Dr Andrew Taylor
I know what it feels like to be a patient as I spent a considerable time in the medical system as a child. That, and the fact that I found medical science fasciniating, inspired me to become a doctor.
I was born in Melbourne, lived in Sydney for most of my high school years, and studied medicine at UWA in Perth. I lived in Bath, England, for 2 years furthering my Rheumatology training.
Bath has the premier Rheumatology hospital in the UK. I worked in clinical research with world leaders. This experience allowed me to build a clinical research career when I returned to Perth. Whilst in England I covered the duties of several of the Rheumatologists and this gave me an appreciation of the NHS how it contrasts with the Australian health care system.
In 1997, I returned to Perth and started private practice.
Andrew Taylor is actively involved in clinical research with special interests in spondyloarthropathies, new therapies in inflammatory arthropathies, Large Vessel Vasculitis (including Giant Cell Arteritis) and musculoskeletal ultrasound. He has published widely in peer reviewed journals and presented at national and international scientific meetings.
