Our Practice

Legacy Heart Center is a leader in compassionate, advanced cardiovascular care. Our physicians are board certified in a wide range of specialties in diagnostic and interventional cardiovascular medicine. We strive to be easily accessible to our patients and their primary care doctors, and we emphasize good communication and follow up. Our employees are key to delivering successful patient care and we value their contributions.

Our History

Legacy Heart Center was formed more than 25 years ago, when Dr. Waenard Miller and Dr. David Schwartz combined their practices to create Texas Regional Heart Center. In anticipation of a planned expansion to a new facility in Plano’s Legacy Park in April of 2005, the medical practice renamed itself Legacy Heart Center in 2003. Legacy Heart Center has grown from two doctors 25 years ago to today’s staff of 17 physicians and more than 100 other health and administrative professionals who provide care for our patients.

Most women fear breast cancer, and rightly so, but many of us haven’t gotten the news that heart disease kills nine times as many women as breast cancer. What’s more, thanks to fast food, increasing levels of obesity, and lack of regular exercise, death from heart disease is on the rise in women under 55. That means us. It’s time to take control.
