How likely are you to recommend Dr. Byrd?

(Select your rating)
I saw Dr. Lawrence Byrd recently for a non emergency issue with my urinalysis. I was so impressed with everything about my appointment with Dr. Byrd. First off, his front office workers are cordial and professional, always a good sign as it indicates that employees feel valued and like their work. Secondly, Dr. Byrd's "bedside manner", a term not much used these days, is exceptional. He is warm, kind and approachable. He takes the time to make you feel important as a patient, no matter how minor or serious your medical issue. Dr. Byrd never let on that he has a busy schedule and perhaps sicker patients to attend to -- For the time that he was with me I felt that my health was of importance to him. Dr. Byrd is thoughtful and does not make snap judgments or diagnoses. He thinks before he speaks. You can sort of see the wheels turning in his obviously skilled experienced mind. In short, Dr. Byrd is the Real Thing -- an old style doctor from a lost generation who knows his stuff!
