Dr. Byrd has been my son's doctor for several year.
Patient | March 18, 2019

A little rushed but otherwise excellent.
Patient | January 29, 2019

I have total confidence in this provider, I would bring my loved ones to him if needed.
Patient | December 17, 2018

I always feel Dr. Byrd is in a hurry - doesn't sit and talk - usually standing as if leaving. Therefore I don't feel comfortable bringing up other issues.
Patient | July 23, 2018

Dr. Byrd is a kind, conservative doctor. I expect to see him all my life!
