Dr. Michael Byrne's Ratings
His receptionist is always on vacation and the substitute isn't allowed to schedule any appointments. This doctor is great but I fear all of his patients have to face the very incompetent and uncaring receptionist. To bad there's nowhere to rate them or a place to report this unprofessionalism.
I was referred to Dr. Byrne twice. 5 years ago for colonoscopy and Feb. This year for gastroscopy. Due to long wait list, another Dr. Performed the gastroscopy in the meantime in May. When I finally saw him two weeks ago, he patiently reviewed the other Dr.'s report on his computer, the medication & other info I brought to show him, while explaining the various symptoms & giving me advice on medication and what supplements to take for my condition, he was warm, caring, professional and knowledgeable throughout our conversation. And he answered my questions in a relaxed and friendly manner. It was easily the most comfortable experience I ever had with a Doctor. I highly recommend him. He is the nicest Specialist ever.
I have also had several interactions with Dr. Byrne over the last few months, and have found him to be professional in every way. Because of his skill and expertise, I was able to avoid a much more invasive procedure for my problem, and he was informative, supportive and friendly throughout. Would recommend him highly.
I recently have has numerous interactions with Dr Byrne as I have on going issues with diverticulitis. On every occasion I saw him or spoke with him on the phone, he was extremely polite and courteous. I say this as I noticed several comments referring to him as arrogant and rude. Not the person I was dealing with. He is incredibly knowledgable and extremely compassionate and understood the challenges that I was experiencing. I would absolutely recommend Dr Byrne.
I am absolutely confused by all the positive reviews about Dr. Byrne. He is easily the WORST doctor I have ever seen. I was referred to him by my doctor, otherwise I would want nothing to do with him. I had to wait over 30 minutes for my appointment and I sat in an empty waiting room. Okay, so I thought maybe he's a thorough doctor..... NOPE! My consult took less than 3 minutes. I found him to be very rude and arrogant and dismissed all of my concerns. He asked me the same questions as the ones I had filled out on the patient form. He told me that his office will call me for another appointment and then looked at his computer screen and ignored me. Okay, so the appointment is done? Most polite doctors would say good bye, stand up, or show the patient out the door. NOPE, none of that. What's worse is that he left the previous patient forms on his desk in plain sight where I could read them. What a complete breach of privacy! I was very disappointed with Dr. Byrne as a doctor. BEWARE!
Dr. Byrne was excellent during my treatment that lasted over 6 months, accurate diagnostic, great follow-up and support. He is highly proficient in his field and has surrounded himself with a great staff and a sense of humor to top it up. I am thankful to him.
This doctor exceeded my expectations. He was warm, professional and extremely knowledgable. Since my visit, I have referred a handful of family members and friends, all of whom have raved about their experience. I highly recommend him.
Arrogant, full of himself. I had a very painful colonoscopy at his hands. I was referred to him again by my GP a few years later, and he was completely dismissive, never even looking at any test results. Eats lunch in the examining room. I will not see him again, period.
