When Dr. Scott Taylor opened Southwest Spine & Rehab, his goal was helping patients through chiropractic care and massage therapy. He soon realized, though, that he could better serve his patients by providing total body care. So, he partnered with Dr. J. Dean Dabbah, MD, and Southwest Family Medical was born. We now can offer our patients convenient access to both practices under the one roof, providing quality professional care to all patients.

Dr Taylor and Dr Dabbah both provide a telehealth service in office 7 days a week, Monday to Thursday 8am to 6.30 pm, and Friday to Sunday 10am to 1pm. We are also open and available for consultations in the Medical Center also, depending on your personal preferences and your medical needs, both options are available to all.
