I visited the Hyperbaric Center of Southwest Florida with the goal of reducing the swelling I experienced from surgery thru the use of their Oxygen Chambers for five sessions. I hit a “home run” when I found this center located in the heart of downtown Sarasota. The facility had state of the art equipment, was extraordinarily clean, the owners “cared”, were involved with the treatment from beginning to end and most importantly when I completed the five sessions, the swelling from my surgery had gone down considerably. As I understand it the use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment that delivers pure oxygen to a patient’s pulmonary system while you are within a pressurized chamber. I was breathing oxygen at levels far greater than that what is found at a normal room atmosphere, which helped my healing process. This procedure is used for purposes other than reducing swelling from surgery, such as: helping stroke victims, people with Lyme disease, children with autism, decompression symptoms (which could result from scuba diving) and for other indications. Initially, I had anxiety about being in a closed chamber, but found it partially open, not confining or claustrophobic at all and actually enjoyed the time I spent there watching videos supplied by the owners. After the first few minutes on the first day of treatment, I did not feel enclosed in the chamber and was very comfortable during the hour sessions I spent at this facility. Overall, a very positive experience and most importantly excellent results. I highly recommend this facility for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.


Awesome place with awesome service! Highly recommend!!


Everything about this facility is excellent..especially Bob and Ellie the owners..as I finished my last treatment I told these great people.. you have not heard the last of me… You helped me.. you helped others I met here and I believe Hyperbaric is the cure for now and the future.. Thank You


I highly recommend Hyperbaric Centers of Southwest Florida. I felt like Elly and Bob adopted me as a son during my treatments. I feel great and I am back in college. Thank you Elly & Bob


Thank you Bob and Ella for the care and commitment you have shown to our mother. Praise God we found your center and were able to take advantage of your highly effective hyperbarric oxygen treatments. Our mom is doing amazing and she thanks God for every day of her life. Thank you once again, we are all very grateful.


Bob and Elly are highly qualified and trained to offer medical grade oxygen in certified hyperbaric chambers. My experience with their treatments was exceptional and I recommend them to anyone wanting to improve a multitude of different health conditions. They are professional, empathetic, and committed to their clients’ wellbeing and safety.


I was recommended to HBOT by a physician to help heal a wound I have had for nearly three years. I am not diabetic. I have an autoimmune disease that has been slowly calcifying my small blood vessels leaving me with skin, colon, lung, and kidney problems. After 40 “dives”, my wound is granulating (filling in) and I feel significantly improved over all. I used to wonder what normal felt like. Now, I can’t wait to return to my physicians for follow-up. I want them to see my improvements so that they can recommend hyperbaric therapy to other patients. I know angiogenesis is taking place. I am excited for my prospects for the future and I know I will continue to use HBOT as part of my treatment protocol. Thanks Elly and Bob for taking such good care of me!


Thank you, Bob & Ellie

Bob & Ellie are two of the most devoted human beings I have ever met. They say they are not doctors… nevertheless their combined knowledge, and wisdom has in my opinion allowed them to be of far greater service to those that suffer from illness & pain than anyone I have ever encountered in the field of medicine, be it holistic or traditional.

Their dedication allows them to serve their clients/patients, 7 days a week to meet the needs of continuous unabated treatments. This is so important in making a positive impact on the outcome of this particular type of health care.

They run a tight ship but not at the cost of forgetting the needs of the people they are serving. When in their care you are priority number one.

I recommend anyone experiencing a decline in mental or any other covered physical issue who is looking for an alternative approach to well being to call Bob or Ellie at the Hyperbaric Centers of Southwest Florida.


I brought my 95 year old mom for 26 treatments to help with her macular degeneration and cognitive impairment. I have great confidence that mom will have a very positive experience. Bob and Elly are very passionate and knowledgeable in this field. It was a very positive experience.


I had a wonderful experience at Hyperbaric Centers of Southwest Florida. The team was very patient with my parents during their treatments. They have a strong passion for not only treating their patients but educating them about HBOT overall. I would highly recommend their center.
