    Dr. Byrd saved my daughter's life. She was diagnosed with an ethesioneuroblastoma. He spent 11 hours removing the golf ball size tumor from her. He not only saved her life, but also saved her eye as well when another facility was going to remove it. We are glad we found him and recommend him to all. He and his staff are caring and compassionate. Everyone from the front desk to the recovery and follow up where outstanding. Thank you!!!

    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!
