Dr. Horsley is not only highly capable and an expert at what he does.....He knows it! I want a Surgeon with Swagger. With him, you have a highly qualified, highly successful Cardiac Surgeon, who is a Master at what he does. He is the guy you want! He is, like Nolan Ryan, good, ....and knows it! He went out of his way in handling my needs, which amounted to a Double Coronary Artery Bypass, and he hit a Homerun! I will always remember what he did for me. Thank you, Dr. Horsley!!!! Bill Mays
