What People Say About Dr. Charles Byrd Sr, MD

I can't enough good about Dr. Byrd. My adult daughter was in the Shreveport area with her church when she had to be taken to the ER for stomach pain. Dr. Byrd was a Godsend. She was nervous and scared until he came in the room to explain that it was her gall bladder and it needed to come out. Once she talked with him her fear was gone. He has a genuine love for his patients and that even pours over into his office staff. I can't recommend him enough.

Dr. Charles Byrd is hands down one of the best doctors in Shreveport area. He is skillful in what he does but also TRULY cares for his patients! I was very nervous before being sent to the OR for gallbladder removal and he asked my husband and I if he could pray with us. I found that to be so AMAZING !! He prayed with us and send me on my way and accomplished my surgery. He is truly one in a million ! Some doctors are in for the money he's a doctor because he truly cares about people !!

Dr. Byrd operating on my mother in Dec 2014. He is the most caring surgeon I have ever seen. Did a great job on mom with what he had to work with as she was terminal. He main goal was to give her "quality of life" with the time she had left.

Dr. Byrd was extremely kind and patient with me. I was brought in through the emergency room at 3 a.m. and was in surgery by noon the same day. He spent time with me and my family explaining the procedure, length of recovery and post-op directions. He was a wonderful surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone!
