in Grady, AL |
I met Dr. Byrd in 1997. He became my cardiologist. I have Epsteins Anomoly of the Tricuspid Valve. l had a hole between the chambers of my heart. These issues where usually taken care of as an infant. Thank God for Dr. Byrd who talked to the surgeon and gave me a chance to live. I had two open heart surgeries 6 months apart. Had it not been for the belief that Dr. Byrd had that this could be taken care of, I might not be here today. Thank you Dr. Byrd. In my book you the number one Cardiologist
