    I recommend Dr Badano, words can't begin to say what a qualified, dedicated, personal doctor she is. She was my doc, in Key Largo Fla years ago. She saved my life, she is simply unforgettable. Since, I have not met a more caring doctor than she is. If you live where she is now..count yourself blessed to have the option to see her. You will definitely know what I mean.

    In the year of 2008, I went to see Dr. BADANO at the advice of one of my own patients. ( I'm a dental assistant. Dr. BADANO took a look at me and sent me straight to the ER little did I know how very sick I was. She then sent me to the University of Miami liver transplant Dr. Eugene Schiff. Five years later I was a grateful recipient of a new liver. If it were not for Dr. SARA BADANO I would not be here to watch my children grow! I could never thank her enough for saving my life!
