Dr. Bryan is a Rock Star. I was a high risk re-entry patient that Challenged the good doctor. I had an old graft stuck to the center of the back side of my sternum. Dr. Bryan had to do some crazy stuff to get it loose before he could open me up. Once he was in he re-grafted 3 arteries and replaced a valve and I feel great again. I would heartily, (pun intended), recommend Dr. Bryan to anyone needing heart surgery.
