Dr. Smith II

"Dr. Smith was very upfront and confident in his initial echocardiogram evaluation. He took the time to explain everything to me and let me know what I could expect, both good and bad. Surgery went as planned without any complications.

Post-op care changed a bit after he went in and saw what everything looked like. I highly recommend Dr. Smith and all of the other amazing doctors and nurses at Baylor Heart Hospital in Plano."

"I was well informed about what the surgery would entail. Bedside manner was very professional and comforting. The aortic valve replacement (with a cow valve) was very effective. I was really MOOOVed. The Maze procedure not so much, but the AFIB, I understand, is difficult to correct under the best of circumstances. I would do it again. I would highly recommend Dr. Smith."
