Dr. Byrd is amazing. He is so knowledgeable about my condition, but what impressed me most is his concern for me as a patient. He listened to my concerns and followed up with me by phone to report the results of my echo. He took time to consider extra aspects of my care such as how results of tests from my PCP could affect my heart health. I am thankful he is my care provider
