Patient | February 20, 2017

Although of national standing in cardiology, Dr. Byrd is always professional, personal & informative.
Patient | February 16, 2017

I was born with a congenital heart defect and have seen several different cardiologists in 35 years due to moving. I love going to Dr. Byrd because he takes care of not just my heart but me as a person too. He always calls me himself to tell my lab results, discuss medication, and when we decided to go through with surgery when medicine did not work. I would not choose to see any other doctor.
Patient | November 1, 2016

I'm sure h e is a very smart man & good dr., but for some reason, he was upset or frustrated when he came in my rm. The nurse kept saying I've got to hurry, DR. BYRD is waiting. Maybe that's why he was upset. The nurse was asking questions & I was ans. as quick as possible.
