1 Patient Review for Dr. Mack

"Dr. Michael Mack flies around the world teaching other surgeons his techniques. I also learned from some nurses that Dr. Mack has corrected many other heart surgeons' mistakes. This most excellent doctor performed my surgery at The Heart Hospital in Plano, TX, a most impressive facility totally dedicated to hearts alone. I was so very lucky to have been under the care of Dr. Mack!"
