I have seen D. Byrd for a few problems over the last several years. My wife had seen him after her doctor in NY passed away and he was trained by the previous doctor that my wife had been to. He is very good and and knows his business only 2nd to the doctor we had seen in NY. I trust his judgement and knowledge.
