Patient Testimonial

No one enters Emerald Coast on a ‘winning streak.’ There is a tremendous amount of hurt, despair and brokenness that walks through these doors. However, I have witnessed an undeniable and amazing level of compassion and grace exhibited to the patients here by you, regardless of attitude. I came in broken, directionless, and begging for a life jacket in the worst storm I’d ever experienced. I was met with compassion, selflessness and gentle understanding from people that didn’t know me.
The professionalism that you display on a daily basis is truly remarkable. I have personally seen angry and hurting patients lash out at innocent therapists, only to be met with empathy, compassion and kindness in return. The point of this letter is to simply show, from my perspective as a patient, how special a calling and how needed the service is that you provide. I have joy again in my life. I have my passion back that was so desperately lacking only weeks ago. I have my own heart back, and I cannot properly express how much that means to me. Please keep saving lives.
