"Brinkman did a great job. I had minimal pain afterwards. Now, I feel much better than I did before the surgery."

"Dr. Brinkman saved my life. After a CT Heart Scan that showed my ascending aorta was the size of a coke can, Dr. Brinkman made the repair. I can't say enough great things about this surgeon......... He is a very SPECIAL, gifted surgeon and I highly recommend him. The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano is also a special place. Their nurses that are THE BEST.
