Dr. Smith II

"Superior care. Never had any pain at my 10-inch incision site. I recommend Dr. Smith to all my friends here in Texas."

-- George Stancoven, Mitral Valve, Tricuspid Valve, Valve Replacement, Median Sternotomy, 11/13/2023

"My cardiologist, Dr. Hollowell told me, "You are going to need to have your valve repaired and I want you to have Dr. Robert Smith do it because he is the best."

And he was right. From our first meeting I agreed. Dr. Smith's professionalism, communication skills and most importantly the time he spent to make sure that my wife and I were comfortable with everything. Even though I had a health situation that caused him to abort the operation, Dr. Smith got it addressed and rescheduled in a short timeframe. Then, the actual surgery, my Mitral valve presented him with a surprise but he addressed it and my surgery was a complete success.

I highly recommend Dr. Smith and his entire staff and the great professionals at Baylor Heart Hospital. Got a Mitral valve issue? Then, Dr Smith is your man. I will be forever grateful. God bless you Dr. Smith! "
