"The brain is one of the biggest unknowns in medicine and in pediatrics in particular. Children are resilient and will always surprise you. Working with them is the best part of my job."

About Me

If your child needs expert neurological care, Connie Taylor, MD, would love to help you at Avera Medical Group Pediatric Specialists Sioux Falls

Expert Brain Care for Children

A native of Maryland, Dr. Taylor has always been interested in science and how things work. She went into the medical profession because she wanted to work with people in a one-on-one setting. 

She chose neurology because she says the brain is one of the biggest unknowns in medicine, and pediatrics because she loves working with children. 

“The best part of my job is working with kids. Every day is different, every kid is different. You see some really remarkable kids who have been through a lot who are strong and able to cope with a lot,” she said.

Dr. Taylor provides expert care in the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions in newborns, infants, children and adolescents. She specializes in epilepsy/seizures, electroencephalography (EEG), neonatal neurology and pediatric stroke.

She’s excited about her journey with Avera, especially with Avera’s growing telemedicine field. She sees telemedicine helping to spread areas of specialty medicine, like pediatric neurology, to underserved parts of South Dakota and the rest of the country.

Active Lifestyle

Dr. Taylor is married with one child. When she’s not busy working and caring for her family, she enjoys running, playing tennis, and being a member the Sioux Falls Curling Club with her husband. She is also musically inclined, playing the viola in various orchestras over the years.
