Dr Byrge told me honestly that a carotid endarterectomy was too risky for me. A surgeon who makes his living doing surgery advised against this surgery. Such honesty I appreciate. I am so thankful he moved his practice to Columbus. This guy is awesome!

Deirdre Beth Aug 20 2020

Review for Dr. Byrge

Horrible doctor . Stay away!! He complains like a child has a condescending attitude and gives bad medical advice. I have since found a great doctor and he completely disagreed with Drummond. Justin leaves the room and does not come back with no explanation. Once again AVOID this bad experience!!

this surgeon never explained options to me and decided on her own to implant a lens in my eye that I never approved. She was subsequently untruthful, defensive, and condescending about the situation. I am disgusted at her attitude. Do NOT use this surgeon.

Very poor experience. He does not listen well at all. Just stares at his computer the whole time. Doesn't ask any questions, explain anything, or provide detailed info about what to do. Just doesn't seem to care, very dismissive and minimal effort in helping you. Would NOT recommend at all.
