Dr. Smith II

"Dr. Robert Smith literally brought me back to life after my heart stopped on the table. Then, he proceeded to finish the surgery with a total of more than 10 and 1/2 hours of work!"

-- Greg Lybrand, Aortic Valve, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, Valve Replacement, Median Sternotomy, 01/31/2022

"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."
