From the moment I arrived at Bayfront, I received extraordinary professional, personalized care and support.   From the emergency room doctors, nurses, x-ray techs and support staff, I felt like I was in the best possible medical hands after experiencing a frightening medical emergency.”

Dr. Acosta, thank you so very much for the wonderful work you did suturing up my right ear on Sunday, February 8th of this year, in Bayfront Emergency Department.   Though still tender in some spots, my ear has healed nicely and looks like an ear. I am very grateful for your skill.”

Evelyn Z.

I am an 86-year-old woman who fell and hurt my back. I was seen almost immediately. A young doctor explained to me that whether it was a bruise or a fracture, the treatment would be the same, calming my fears of an operation. Every person I came in contact with was efficient, helpful and made the experience as pleasant as possible, under the circumstances. Please thank them for me.”
