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.

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.

Again - I waited 2.5 hrs. - only to have them NOT have my records & he told me to come back when they get them - WASTE OF $!!

I have already recommended Dr. Byrd to a friend. Dr. Byrd is a really good doctor. I almost wish I lived near Nashville so I could see him on a regular basis, however, I don't want to move anywhere near living in East Tennessee.

Dr. Byrd has been examining and advising me 20 years during and after my heart surgery. I believe his work has kept me alive and in good health.
