Good relaxing visit and discussion of my medical concerns.

August, 27 2022

The only reason I wouldn't refer him is that I know he cares deeply about his patients and he might not be adding patients at this time so he can be available for urgent needs.

I have been seeing Dr. Byrd since we moved to the area xxx years ago. He always treats me with respect, and listens to what I have to say. He has managed my xxx diabetes from poorly controlled when he assumed my care, to well controlled especially this year. I have lost 22 pounds, and have more energy and drive than I have experienced in years. He is a kind, honest and smart individual, and I feel very blessed that he is my preferred physician.

Dr. Byrd in the consummate example of professionalism, medical knowledge, practical application, world-class listener and communicator, and personal attention. He and his staff continue to be a blessing to both of as we navigate and conquer medical care for two xxx seniors. We are absolutely and totally comfortable and thankful for our Primary Medical care under Dr. Byrd's purview.
