Specialties

Dr. Kizhakevilayi R Byju has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

When I first met with Dr. Byju several years ago, he told me that I needed to see a dermatologist and thoughtfully made an appointment for me to see one in another building on the same campus the same afternoon. When I needed to see Dr. Byju quickly last week, his staff could not have more understanding and efficient. I called at 9:30 am and they got me in for a 10:15 appointment. Dr. Byju assessed the problem within five minutes and I am scheduled for a colonoscopy next week. He's a true professional, easy to talk with, and gives one a sense of being in good hands.

Highly recommend

Dr Byju was instrumental in getting me admitted to Tampa General where I received the immediate attention that basically saved my life. His quick assessment of my condition and calm professional approach to the situation will always be greatly appreciated.

Did not care for this Dr. I was given some misinformation and careless errors were made when reporting my bloodwork to me.
