I was very grateful that Dr Byers was able to see me. I couldn't have been more pleased with her knowledge of my illness and her concern and advice. she was thorough and took the time to listen to my concerns

August 23, 2017

Dr. Byers was extremely attentive, responded to every question--regardless of how idiotic they must have seemed--I had and actually anticipated my queries.

very professional and caring at all times

Dr. Karin Byers is a very caring, concerned & excellent physician.

Most of these questions are not applicable. Dr. Byers is an excellent doctor. Her assistants were pleasant, but we did not interact with them on the levels or in the areas you're asking about. The doctor was concerned about pain, the doctor was concerned with the problem. We had very little contact with any nursing staff during this visit. We interacted with the receptionist. She was very helpful.

The care provider has shown exception aptitude when it came to asking about what happened to me and the resulting care that was required for me to become better.

I have seen numerous physicians in the past for my auto immune issues. Dr Byers by far has the best bedside manner of any of my previous physicians which is very rare these days. I only wish her specialty was auto immune as I probably won't need her services again. She was very knowledgeable about Lyme disesse!
