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."

"Dr. Robert Smith performed my heart surgery about a year ago. I had a heart checkup today, and my heart is normal and stronger than ever. Dr. Smith could have replaced the heart valve with an artificial one, but he repaired the heart valve instead. I really appreciate the excellent job on the surgery. Dr. Robert Smith is the best surgeon and I highly recommend him for heart surgeries."
