I made an appointment for my husband over 4 weeks ago. The appt was today at 1:30. We were there at 12:40 and were told the wait would be at least another hour and 1/2 from appt time. We ask if they overbooked and they said no. No phone call from the office/text that they were running behind. No consideration for the patient. They said we could cancel and we did. No apology or explanation..they just did not care. Can make an appt easily but you have no idea what time you will be seen.

Dr. Byrd's clear and consise explanation of my procedure and what to expect was great. His time and care for me while I was in the hospital was even better. My discectomy was over two years ago and the only thing I can say is I wish I had done it sooner. Dr. Byrd and his staff are first class. Thank you for giving me my life back!

I had previous back surgery in a different part of va. Which left in worse shape before. We relocated to ba. Beach and Dr.Byrd III was my surgeon and doctor and he made a world of difference in my life.I would recommend him to anyone.
