I was referred by my PCP and the referral was denied without any explanation. How does that happen??

Dr. Byrd is an Absolute Godsend! He has the most genuine authentic demeanor & truly cares about each person as a human being not just a patient!

I have never been treated so bad at a Dr's office in my entire life. The receptionist were rude, hateful and not helpful. The other lady we interacted with, I am guessing was a nurse, was HORRIBLE. I never saw the Dr. but would never want a dr who employed people who treated others as they treated me. There is no compassion or caring from the staff.

Dr. Victor Byrd is an amazing doctor. I feel very blessed to have him as my personal physician. He is very caring and takes his time with his patients. He listens well and is very compassionate, caring and intelligent. I trust him completely. I have to travel almost 3 hours for an appointment but I will continue to do so, God willing. I would recommend him highly to anyone who is suffering with any type of arthritis condition and pain. Highest caliber of expertise!!

I've been a patient of Dr. Byrd for 3 years. Him & his staff are amazing! They are show patience, compassion & empathy. Dr. Byrd has always spent time with me answers my questions, helping decide the best treatment options & offering hope. Recently, I had the worse PsA flare & luckily he was the physician on call. Not only did he talk me through what to do, but he worked me for a next day 8 am apt. He is also always concerned about my quality of life and makes diet & exercise recommendations.

I've been a patient of Dr. Byrd's for 15 yrs and I don't think I could get better care anywhere else! Dr Byrd goes out of his way to see that you receive the best overall care possible. He's a warm and personable doctor who really cares about his patients. I trust him and I know he has my best interest at heart.

I have been a patient of Dr. Byrd's for eight years. Dr. Byrd is a very thoughtful, caring, highly experienced, and creative physician. His approach always involves listening to my concerns and addressing each of my issues. Further, he seems to have a wide spread network of fellow Rheumatologists to collaborate with and keep abreast of the latest advances in the field. I can not imagine what more you could ever ask of a health care provider. I am very satisfied !! Thanks Dr. Byrd !
Nashville, TN |
I was very loyal to this doctor and sang his praises for years. I had a false sense of security and felt cared about until it became completely evident that was completely fake. Due to bad judgements in my personal life, I was tossed out of the practice after 10 years with literally nowhere else to go. Now i'm without a rheumatologist and therefore treatment. As i sit with my joints degrading and denied access to the biologic i need, I'm at a loss as to what to do. Sadly, Dr. Byrd doesn't care.
