Kenji Taylor, MD

Dr. Taylor was born and raised in rural Kansas and Pennsylvania, the youngest of four children. He headed to the big city of Providence, RI to study Neuroscience, East Asian Studies and Entrepreneurship at Brown University. Following graduation, his short-lived career in finance took him to Los Angeles, London and Tokyo, before he decided medicine was how he could directly help others who needed it the most. He attended the University of Pennsylvania where he developed a passion for health disparities, social justice and community medicine in West Philadelphia. As a medical student, he founded the nationally-recognized Cut Hypertension Program (, a blood pressure screening, education and referral program partnered with African American barbershops. He completed residency and chief residency at UCSF prior to joining the Stanford faculty and Stanford-Intermountain Fellowship in Population Health, Delivery Science, and Primary Care.
