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.
