Dr. Byrum was very nice during our first visit. We told him during that visit that we were not going to vaccinate our son. Upon knowing this, he told us to go ahead and make another appointment for a month later. Which we did. During that second appointment, because we said again, No vaccines, he told us we had to find another doctor. "Because it is my personal decision that all kids must be vaccinated, I will no longer be your son's doctor." He then became very rude towards us. He knew we were having issues with our son's circumcision as well, and for him to now make us go on a hunt for another doctor before things get worse? That is very wrong of him. Why didn't he say anything on that first visit? SO if you are a parent like us, do not waste your time with Doctor Byrum. He will not take care of your child if you are not going to get them vaccinated.??

Dr. Byrum was the PCP for my 3 sons since they were toddlers/babies and while I was pleased with my experience with him, I wasn't sure if he'd be the best ped for the daughter we were about to adopt from the Ukraine. Does he know about the special circumstances surrounding a 17-mo-old special needs adopted child from Eastern Europe? So I had a consultation with him, bringing my list of concerns. It turns out he had just returned from a mission trip to an orphanage in Russia. Not only was he aware - he was ACUTELY aware. He answered all of my questions, even made me feel more at ease with our decision to adopt, and lifted a burden off my shoulders. My now-6-year-old daughter adores him. In my opinion, Dr. Byrum is superb.

We used Dr. Byrum on the advice of a lactation consultant. He is incredibly supportive of breastfeeding and every visit we've had with him he has taken his time to explain and answer every question. We also decided to spread out our son's shots and he agreed that this was a good idea. We never got any flack about that at all. We have never encountered any rude office staff or nursing staff either. I would (and have) certainly recommend Dr. Byrum. Others must agree with me because throughout the clinic are framed posters showing were he was voted the #1 pediatrician in the Little Rock area!

Not all kids are alike. Telling a mother having a difficult time with a baby (my second) to go read a book without first asking questions and understanding the family history is insulting.

Likewise, telling a mother who is very tired and working to resolve some sleep issues that postponing shots (to avoid having 2 problems at once) is harmful to her child is not at all helpful.

Dr. Byrum needs to listen more and not make assumptions.
