Dr. Scanlon was my doctor for over 25 years. I moved to Arizona 3 years ago, and only today learned of his passing. He was one of the kindest, and most careing gentleman I have ever known. No one really wants to visit the doctor, but I always looked forward to visiting my friend. The only Doctor to ever give me his home phone number in case of an emergency. Thanks to him, I never had to use it.I considered him to be my friend, as well as the most competient doctor I have ever known. This...

My mother has been a patient of Dr. Scanlons for over 30 years....I don't remember when he wasn't. I admired him and respected him for his kindness and understanding as well as his prestigious knowledge in his field. He always made himself accessible to me and my family whenever we needed information about Mom. He was such a kind, gentle man and so erudite in his field and just about everything else.....there was nothing he wouldn't do for his patients and their families. My heart goes out...

To the family of Pat Scanlon
I first met Pat in the spring of 1990. He hired me after I retired from the Air Force. He was instrumental in making a smooth transition from military medicine to civilian academic medicine. As he was to many other physicians, he was an important mentor for me. I worked with him as my Chief, cath lab colleague, general cardiology c olleague,and friend. I had clinic next to him on Tuesday mornings for several years. I learned of his illness when I visited...

Dear family of Dr. Scanlon,
Our deepest sympathy to all of you. Dr. Scanlon was my father's cardiologist for over 31 years. He always spoke very highly of him, not only as a Physician, but as a person. Dr. Scanlon was the type of Physician that is a rare gift to both the medical field and his patients.
Sincerely,
Family of Robert P. Balsitis

Dr. Scanlon was my cardiologist for 19 years and my wife's for nearly that long. His gentle skill and wisdom guided me through many procedures, including five stents, and enabled me to avoid having the more invasive procedures. He will be greatly missed. The Wilsons
