Dr. Alvernia found that I had brain tumor. I had headaches and didn't know why. Dr. Alvernia did my surgery and I'm recovering quite well. Good overall experience because I didn't know what to expect. Dr. Alvernia office staff was very nice and helped me throughout my recovery period. I really appreciate Dr. Alvernia and Dr. Williams for sending him to Dr. Alvernia

There is no other doctor I could recommend more! Dr. Alvernia, Courtney and Janelle are top notch! Kind, helpful and thorough are a just a few words to describe this group. My surgery was uneventful, and the excruciating pain I was experiencing was 100% gone immediately! I am so thankful to have a neurosurgeon like Dr. Alvernia in the Monroe area.

I had sciatica down my left leg that rendered me unable to work or even function in daily life. I googled the best neurosurgeon in Monroe, La and Dr Alvernia came up. They got me in within a week and I had surgery within the month. I had immediate relief. I am now back to work and doing great! So glad I found Dr Alvernia!

Dr. Alvernia and his staff were amazing. He took time to thoroughly explain everything and answer all my questions. He even drew pictures and wrote everything down so I could look back at it later. My surgery went even more smoothly than I could have imagined. I highly recommend Dr. Alvernia.

I was having pain in my neck for some time. Pain was at a constant 8 on pain scale. My husband had back surgery using Dr. Alvernia, so I consulted him. He determined that I had degenerative discs that required surgery. I am pain free. I am very pleased with Dr. Alvernia and his staff. I would recommend that anyone with back or neck pain see him.
