When I was told I had tonsil cancer, Dr. Byrd was the doctor recommended. From the very beginning, I knew he was the right doctor for me. He is a pioneer in robotic surgery and through his demeanor, you know he is truly concerned about your well being. For example, he took great lengths to not only remove everything that could be cancerous, but he did keeping in mind future quality of life. I highly recommend Dr. Byrd!
