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.

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.
