27/01/11 5 5 5 5 When I needed heart surgery a physician friend of mine recommended I go to an academic center and seek the best. After doing my research I came across Dr. Boyd. I was actually surprised at the amount of time he spent with my wife, son and I going over my case and answering all the questions we had about my condition. He has an excellent bedside manner, and is recognized as a world expert in robotic heart surgery. Even though my case was complex, he was thorough in preparing me and getting all the tests I needed before surgery. I had a remarkable recovery and have never felt better!!! My friend was right, other doctors send their relatives and friends to him which says a lot.  Respond
