Philadelphia, PA |
This doctor told me my son needed one of his legs amputated. Thankfully I didn't listen because at 18 months he started walking and 22 years later he lives a full and happy life. Dr. Byron's exact words were, "Do yourself a favor and get a wheelchair."

He is knowledgeable and thorough & takes the time to explain your test results with you. I had a clear understanding of my disease pathophysiology & what actions I needed to take to control my symptoms.
