Clinical Approach:

Successful psychiatric treatment always requires an open and honest relationship and collaboration between patient and psychiatrist, beginning with careful evaluation of the patient's concerns and discussion with each patient of their individual treatment needs and goals. Evidence based treatment alternatives are then presented to the patient, including the potential side effects and benefits of each treatment option. Together, the patient and psychiatrist decide on the treatment plan that best fits the patient's needs, monitoring progress and modifying the plan as needed to achieve optimal clinical improvement and achievement of the patient's treatment goals. Throughout psychiatric treatment, Dr. Byrd collaborates closely with other mental professionals on the patient's care team in order to assure the most effective and comprehensive treatment possible.

Hobbies:

Dr. Byrd enjoys spending time with his family and friends, reading, cooking, travel and outdoor activities including hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
