Hugh S. Taylor, MD, chair of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at Yale School of Medicine and chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Yale New Haven Hospital, is an international expert in his field who draws upon the latest research to provide patients with the best evidence-based treatments for such conditions as endometriosis, infertility and menopause. “We believe that when you combine compassionate doctors with groundbreaking medicine, every patient benefits,” he says.
In addition to being a devoted clinician, he is an active researcher who the National Institutes of Health has funded continuously for more than 20 years. He has conducted extensive research in such areas as endometriosis and menopause, and spoken on such topics as how cell phone exposure in utero can damage babies’ brains. He is a professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences; and of molecular, cellular and development biology at Yale School of Medicine.
Since he completed his residency at Yale New Haven Hospital in 1992, Dr. Taylor says he has watched his department expand to become a worldwide leader in women’s medicine. “Every woman who walks through our doors is treated as an individual. A visitor to Yale can be secure in the knowledge that she is in the very best of hands, working with terrifically diverse, skilled and driven teams and receiving the very best care in the world,” Dr. Taylor says. Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which provides Connecticut Magazine’s annual Top Doctors list, has recognized Dr. Taylor as one of the best doctors in the state.
