Dr. Brinkman

"I had valve replacement and an ascending aorta bypass. Praise the Lord that I was referred to Dr. Brinkman! I write this recommendation one day post discharge."

-- Mark Reeder, Tricuspid Valve, Valve Replacement, Root Replacement, 09/07/2023

"I must admit, when I was facing the prospect of aortic valve replacement and coronary bypass surgery, I was apprehensive and frightened.

Dr. William Brinkman was very reassuring and had such confidence in my surgery outcome, that I knew I was with the right physician. My surgery was successful, and Dr. Brinkman and all the staff at Plano Heart Hospital were all phenomenal!

If you have a heart condition, I would highly recommend Dr. Brinkman and The Plano Heart Hospital and the quality of care you receive. "
