    in Key Largo, FL |
    I have been working closely with Dr. Lavernia and his staff for over 2 months. I have undergone 2 surgeries and still have 1 more to go after resolving a bone infection in my left hip requiring 2 months of IV antibiotics. I have had a total of 5 surgeries on my hip and don't know what I would do without someone like Dr. Lavernia who is finally getting me back on my feet. As a nurse it has been a long road but I know it will all work out thanks to the amazing skill and expertise of Dr. Lavernia.
