My husband and I both have Dr. Byrd as our primary care physician. My husband has many medical medical conditions and Dr. Byrd listens empathically to his updates and then addresses them one by one. She has also been a wonderful referral source for us. In addition, neither my husband or I have ever had such thorough annual physicals, that truly covered us from head to toe. I could relay many examples of Dr. Byrd’s sensitivity , knowledge and down to earth style, but there is one that I will choose for example. - It was a Sat. night and I had pain and swelling in my leg. Having had 2 prior DVT’s, I was very anxious and becoming more so as time went on. I called Dr. Byrd, apologizing for the after hours call. She immediately made me feel better saying it was okay, and that she was glad that I called. Since I had begun a low dose of blood thinner she did not think it was a DVT and instructed me to go to the ER if it got worse. I can not really describe how helpful it was to hear her expertise, to avoid the ER at a time of high levels of contagious disease, and to have her calm my anxiety. We feel we would be remiss if we did not also mention Natalie, Dr. Byrd’s personal assistant. She too is amazing! She’s kind and responsible. They are a dynamic duo!
