Patient Comments (1)
Decatur, IL |
I have seen Dr. Byrkit several times and I have found her to be unwilling to listen to the patients thoughts and needs. Once being forced to have a test done twice because the results were lost or not recorded. The last straw for me was bringing my elderly mother to her. She was in need of fast medical advice and Dr. Byrkit was extremely rude. Refusing to run a simple urine test that could have ruled out many things, refusing to give a doctor referral, lacking any compassion.
