“My daughter Leila was born with three serious heart defects. AtLeila three months old, Dr. Redmond Burke performed open-heart surgery to correct her condition. Dealing with Dr. Burke and his team was a surprisingly calming experience. They made her father and I, along with our families, feel that our little girl was in the best hands possible.

Before, during and after her surgery, the entire team was there to ease our worries and to help our daughter have a healthy future. Our family will be forever indebted to Dr. Burke, his team and the hospital staff who cared for Leila with so much love and support. Our Leila is now 15 months old and extremely healthy thanks to her wonderful doctors.”
