I am saddened to hear of Dr. Floyd's passing.

Dr. Floyd became my mentor in how to assess and treat patients when I was his Fellow during my training at Duke. To this day, when I see a new patient, I use the format of his note that I learned at his side.

In caring for patients, Dr. Floyd had the ability to 'see the whole picture', combining the entire spectrum of information, from the detailed, scientific, studies to the personal details of the patient and their family. I say 'patient' because he treated each patient individually and uniquely and always with the 'whole patient's' interests at the center.

As a Fellow in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology, one of the most 'focused' sub-specialties of Cardiology, I came to Dr. Floyd as an example of one end of the 'spectrum'. He showed me the other end of the 'spectrum' and everything in between. He 'congealed' in me how to take care of patients.

I feel honored to have had the opportunity to have studied at his side and I recognize, and am grateful for, the life long impact he has had on my practice of medicine.

I can only hope that I have been able to incorporate those attributes when caring for my patients.

American Medicine has lost a great example of all that is good in medicine.

Dr. Floyd was a cardiologist's cardiologist, an exemplary clinician and a real gentleman. I will always remember the time I spent with him on the wards at Duke University Medical Center as an intern, resident and, later, as a cardiology fellow. I am indebted to him for sharing all his clinical skills with me and teaching me that 80% of diagnoses could be made by talking to our patients and examining them carefully.

Thank you Dr. Floyd!

Dr. Floyd was my Daddy's cardiologist at Duke during the 1960s. He was a very kind and gentle physician. Always assuring that you understood what was happening. Our family was amazed when Dr. Floyd came to my Daddy's funeral 25 miles aways. Always a special man to us.

Dr. Floyd was one of the kindest physicians I ever encountered. It was not just his brilliant mind but his quiet demeanor that made him one of my heroes. He was both a friend and my physician. The world has lost one of the great ones. I remember when he first came to Duke and he took me under his wing....and then stayed by my side over the years through phone calls or mail. I am sad for your loss
