after trying for 3 days to get an appointment, scheduler called me back on 4th day only to make me wait 3 weeks for an appointment. 1 hr and 25 minute wait in waiting room. Dr. FINALLY walks in for all of 10 minutes, never touches my body, listen to my heart or anything just wanted to write a pain pill. I wanted to find out what caused pain not cover it up with pain pills. Staff was very rude, Nurse did not seem very educated. I'll look for another office that is more professional. tried to complain to office manager and never got a return call.

One Star

Could Never get an appointment when I needed it, office just wants to juggle you between Nurse Practioners. Can never get return call, automated phone system is terrible. People herded like cattle through office. Office staff seemed more interested in playing with their personal phones than helping patients

Nurses out of control!

Dr.'s Byrd are great....their nurses a different story. From talking loud enough about their weekend of drinking to one actually having an affair with one of my friends husband, they need lots of lessons in respect and tact. They are rude and knowing the one actually bragged about having a 'meeting' with another woman's husband at the office makes me worry which room was actually 'used'. Sad such great Dr.s have such horrible skanky nurses!
