About Me

Dr. Aaron Wohl was born on May 14, 1974, into a vibrant academic community in Durham, North Carolina. He has carved out an impressive career as an emergency medicine physician, marked by unwavering dedication, compassionate leadership, and a wide range of interests. Now a central figure in North Fort Myers, Florida, his journey is a symbolic blend of professional diligence, societal advocacy, and continuous personal enrichment. His narrative began in Perrine, Florida, where his youthful curiosity and intrinsic desire to engage with the world around him took shape. Demonstrating an early aptitude for responsibility and independence, he financed his pilot training by working at a pet store in Kendall, securing a private pilot’s license by the age of 17.

His academic ambitions flourished with a B.S. in Biology, Magna cum Laude, from Florida International University in 1998, followed by a medical degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine, where he graduated in the top decile in 2001. His medical training culminated with him being honored as “Resident of the Year” at Orlando Regional Medical Center in 2004, and his passion for imparting knowledge led him to briefly teach at Shands UF in Gainesville before setting his sights on community emergency medicine in Fort Myers. His commitment to community service in Fort Myers has been unwavering since 2005, particularly in his crusade against the opioid epidemic starting in 2008.

His efforts to craft and implement guidelines that mitigate prescription opioid misuse have had a profound impact. He has been instrumental in advocating for greater access to Naloxone and introduced a pioneering protocol for Buprenorphine induction in emergency settings in 2015, which marked a significant advance in emergency care for opioid overdoses. Dr. Wohl also champions the cause of his fellow emergency medicine physicians, ensuring their voices are heard amidst the complex dynamics of patient care and hospital management.
