Dr Byrd came highly recommended by my cardiologist to care for my hypertension and diabetic risk of kidney issues. Dr Byrd was immediately able to successfully pharmaceutically control my issues

Dr. Byrd has been managing my blood pressure for over 5 years and he has provided me with excellent care. Although I have an excellent primary care physician, I leave the blood pressure in his hands and I've been without problems or incident. Thank you Dr. Byrd.
in Belmar, NJ |
Dr. Byrd is an intelligent, highly skilled,compassionate, kind doctor. I was so sick for so long and finally in one visit and some testing he knew exactly what to do. Dr. Byrd promised me I would be feeling a whole lot better and he was right. I am so blessed and grateful to have been referred to him. What can you say about someone who gives you your life back? God bless him.
