"Excellent outcome from my cardiac surgery. Highly recommend!"

-- Paula Marie Pippin, Aortic Valve, Mitral Valve, Valve Repair, 06/21/2022

"Amazing. Nobody wants to have this surgery...but if you find yourself having to have it, try the amazing doctors at Baylor, Scott & White, The Heart Hospital in Plano, TX. I was lucky enough to have Dr. Ryan and Dr. Brinkman do my surgery. Everything went smoothly.

The hospital team is really amazing as well. Instant attention to your needs and they have experience, education and integrate perfectly with the doctors and each other.

It seems this smallish hospital gets more and more acclaim every year. And it deserves it. I felt lucky to have my needs taken care of here. "
