Dr. Carolina Vera

FYT_doctors_slider2 copyOriginally from Colombia, Dr. Carolina Vera moved with her parents and sister to Fort Lauderdale, Florida at 9 years old. She dreamt of America as the land of hope, promise and opportunity: a better life only limited by her own imagination and will to succeed. Armed with intelligence, determination, passion and street smarts, Dr. Vera graduated at the top of her high school class and had the prestigious honor of being immediately accepted into medical school at Nova Southeastern University, where she eventually graduated with highest honors. Being passionate about saving lives and gaining knowledge in all forms of medicine, Dr. Vera was naturally drawn toward Trauma and Emergency Medicine. She pursued her residency in Emergency Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami, where she was named Chief Intern during her four years of training. Over the following ten years, Dr. Vera worked full-time in various Emergency Rooms across Broward and Dade Counties, honing all of her medical skills and abilities. She has a relentless drive for excellence that has helped to save many lives, and she has undoubtedly left an immeasurable impact on countless thankful families, colleagues and staff.


From a very early age, Shashi Kusuma, M.D. was interested in the human form and function. This interest combined with his love of art and medicine led him to pursue his undergraduate studies at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. There he earned a Bachelor’s degree in biology. In addition to his biology degree, he also attended the Gouizetta School of Business at Emory University where he earned a Bachelors of Business Administration (B.B.A) with honors.

After completion of his undergraduate studies he matriculated at the Medical college of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia. There he excelled in medicine and graduated with an M.D. degree at the top of his class with the prestigious AOA honor society. He then completed two years in General Surgery, including his internship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. He subsequently completed Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at the same institution.

He was board certified in the field in 2005 by the American Board of Otolaryngology, an accredited board by the ABMS (American Board of Medical Specialties). He then pursued additional training for two years in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic Foundation, in Cleveland, Ohio. He completed his plastic and reconstructive training in 2006.

He was board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, an accredited board by ABMS (American Board of Medical Specialties) in 2007. He served as a Staff Surgeon in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation for the subsequent 4 years.
