Dr. Joseph Bird Jr, MD
Joey Bird's first intended specialty was retinal surgery, but a rotation with a reproductive endocrinologist while attending East Tennessee State University's James H. Quillen College of Medicine changed his mind. He "fell in love with the patients and the way the doctor became a part of their stories." Of his work as a fertility specialist, Dr. Bird says, "Every case is interesting and rewarding in its own way. I'm never bored." Throughout treatment, he encourages his patients to find hope. He says, "Successful outcomes require the ability to count on something you can't see.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bird Jr "Our patient's often come to us with disappointment, stress, and fear of never achieving a successful outcome in their attempts to start a family.  I have observed that my patients rarely come to me seeking my credentials as much as looking for someone to offer them hope that their dreams of starting a family will come true.  This is where I like to start with a new patient.  By helping them understand what we can do to overcome the infertility battle, this seems to recharge their batteries and allow them to continue pursuing their dream of starting a family.  I have found that my patients want hope and that is what I offer with every encounter."

Dr. Bird was my answered prayer! I had 2 C-sections, 2 ablations, & a partial hysterectomy in the past. I was in terrible pain after my partial hysterectomy for a whole year but the other Drs couldn't find anything that was causing the pain. I went to see Dr Byrd & for the first time I had someone who actually set down & LISTENED to me & was truly concerned about my pain! He immediately did surgery & found adhesions connecting my ovaries to my colon. So thankful he believed me!
