Dr.Byrne and Dr. Wiet saved my life. The very best of surgeons. Dr. Byrne is exceptional. It was a very stressful time in my life and he helped me to be more positive and to have a more positive outlook. To that I'm grateful. Being able to start thinking positive and having total faith in my Dr's abilities made all the difference. MelissaPeterson. Surgery: January9th 2014
