  • I was very pleased by the way the staff and doctors cared for my dear Sanibel. I was so worried about him while he was in the hospital. They contacted me regularly to keep me updated on his progression. They treated him with hyperbaric oxygen therapy which helped his wound heal faster. It was clear to me that they go the extra mile to provide the best customer service and patient care; the doctors and staff truly love what they do! I am so thankful that we have this specialty/ICU hospital in Ft. Pierce. I can't thank the AERC enough for saving my dear Sanibel's life!
