Dr. Karin was phenomenal! I was accompanied by my 33 yr old daughter. We both were 100% satisfied & appreciated the doctor, her knowledge, compassion, advise & suggestions to figure out what is going on with my health. Ive seen many drs & a lot of specialists over my 56 yrs and she was by far the BEST!!! My daughter also agree & we both left there feeling very confident in Dr. Karin.

Absolutely nothing bad to comment on. First of all, quickly checked in at kiosk. Had to update all insurance info., took less thaan three minutes. before we were done with the 3 minute insurance update, we were already being called back by the most awesome nurse EVER! Her name is Ashley (hope I spelled it correctly), so personable, genuinely interested and engaged. Felt very comfortable, and I loved the way she stressed honesty and trust between the staff and patient. There was a wonderful sense of caring and positive feedback, I guess the feeling could be best described as you don't feel scrutinized or judged. Dr. entered the room 2 or 3 minutes after Nurse Ashley exited. I don't know how to express what a magnificent Dr. and healer she aspires to be. She is not just a prescriber (giving medication for symptoms instead of diagnosing the real problem), she is a dedicated mystery solver... (That is the stage I am in)...and I truly believe, once this is all figured out, that she will do whatever needs to be done.

Dr.Byers is a very pleasant person who goes out of her way to make a patient comfortable under somewhat stressful conditions. The Doctor is very knowledgeable and has improved my condition immeasurably.

Dr. Byers was by far the very best doctor I have ever had in my life. I had been to 4 others before her for my condition, and none explained even my test results. She not only treated me with complete respect, but she genuinely seemed to care about my anxiety about my condition, and she had great compassion. She made me feel, to put it plainly, like a human being! I highly recommend Dr. Byers. I have never had a doctor like her in my 60 years.

Dr Byers took the time to have detailed working knowledge of my complex medical history. She responded in concerned detailed manner that was very helpful to me in helping me deal with complex convergence of medical conditions.

Dr Karin Byers and staff are some of the best in the medical profession.
