Takes a lot of heart
Regarding “Things … I just couldn’t imagine’” (Page A1, May 27), hats off to the Houston Chronicle for its series on Dr. O.H. “Bud” Frazier, Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center and the Texas Heart Institute. Investigative journalism involves high expenses, is time intensive with uncertain results and risks defamation litigation.
Your uncovering of the hidden truths about the storied Texas Heart Institute and Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center’s outcomes for heart transplants has made your readers more knowledgeable, enabled patients to make more informed treatment decisions and possibly spared some families and patients from unnecessary heartache and grief.
