Specialties

Dr. Victor M Byrd has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • 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.

Dr. Byrd is a very knowledgeable gentleman and diagnosed me with Eosiniphillic Faciitis several years ago. He has treated me and I am so much better now. This is a chronic disease but he knew exactly what to do to get me on the way to recovery. I owe God first and Dr. Byrd my gratitude for taking care of me.

Dr. Byrd is the BEST!

I love Dr. Byrd. I have been going to him for years. He really cares for his patients and is incredibly devoted to finding the best care plan for each patient. I love that he does not just treat the symptoms, he finds and treats the root of the issue. His staff is wonderful also. I always feel so happy when I leave there....like I just visited with family.

Poor response to needs between appointments

Phone calls for nurse/doctor assistance take a long time to get a return call. Nurse is unsympathetic to the patients needs.
