Patient Feedback

“Dr Lavernia is the best in his class, by far. When other Dr’s said it would be impossible to operate on my old man, he not only did it, but here we are over 17 years after that and he’s still going strong. Someone who could barely walk, thanks to Dr. Lavernia, he now lives his best life ever. Dr. Lavernia and his staff are very professional, courteous, empathetic and I could go on forever. If you’re looking for the best, look no further because he is it.”

“Dr Lavernia did a hip replacement on my husband. His staff is very nice and treats you very well. Dr. Lavernia takes his time with you and explains everything in detail so that you understand. I would highly recommend him.”
