Dr. Barry Byer has the following 2 specialties
- Adult Medicine
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Why haven't I change the doctor sooner. The office is a mess. Staff is lazy and absolutely not helpful. Dr. Beyer doesn't want to think outside of the box and has horrible "bed side manners". He likes to send you for unnecessary tests. He doesn't listen to the patient and has a very narcissistic personality. He has 2 NP and a lot of times they misdiagnose. The wait time is bad as well. Do not go to that office.
I've been a patient of Dr. Byer's for about 2 years now and am currently looking for another GP. I've given him and his staff the benefit of the doubt, but after this much time have come to the conclusion that it's time to move on. He's rushed, rude and constantly referring me to specialists for extra tests. When I see these specialists they all ask me why I've been sent to see them: According to their tests I'm absolutely fine. Too bad I can't say the same for Dr. Byer.
The practice is awful. You will be better off diagnosing and treating yourself than relying on this practice to do that for you. They are in this to make money - they do NOT care about the patient which is why they hire D grade staff members who are rude and uncaring as well. The doctor is so cocky he does not even see you - his nurse sees you and actually that is not such a bad thing as she is better at diagnosing than he is. In addition, you will have to keep following up with this practice than hope that they will call you if something is wrong with your results. Looks like he bough his degree of ebay and paid someone off at the Washingtonian to rate him as the top 100 - bottom 100 would be most appropriate - take a lesson or two Mr. Byer in CARING...............it's your job!!!
I am shocked by some of these unfair entries. I've been a patient of Dr. Byer for 10 years +. During this time I moved from Falls Church but still travel to see him because I feel he has been a real partner in my health. Over the years he has helped me to control my cholesterol effectively (which was very, very high)and encouraged me systematically lessen several risk factors. Did we perform testing find out what those risk factor were? Yes we did. Did we work on one risk factor at a time? Yes, for the most part we did. What is the end result? I am very sure the process has ended years my life. His focus is on prevention which is an ongoing process in which the patient needs to be an active participant.
