"I can not say enough about the doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners and staff at Baylor Heart Hospital. It takes a "Team" and this team was awesome.

We were very comfortable and confident in every step of the procedure. Baylor Heart and Dr. Schaffer, Dr. Shalik, Dr. Potlurie, the anesthesia team, echo cardio technicians... Everyone is FANTASTIC. Thank you all so much!"
