As a Doctor I really like her, but her staff is not helpful at all. I never get return phone calls either. They have sent me to urgent care clinics and I have ended up in hospital emergency rooms because I couldn't get appointments.

Dr. Scanlon is our family doctor for myself and my husband. She is amazing! What doctor do you know that gives you a true "hug" when she enters your appt. ? She has a great sense of education and knowledge and helped me immensely with my heart issues and other health issues. She is on point and tells you what you NEED to hear, but in a caring and mannerly way. Has great bedside manners at the hospital and is always smiling. My husband and I consider her part of our family and am indebted to her.

Dr Scanlon is probably the best PCP I’ve been to. She takes time to listen - and you can tell she cares. I thing being a DO makes the difference- caring for the whole individual.

Dr. Scanlon is a very caring, intelligent doctor whom I absolutely trust, however, her front desk is abominable in that I've had incorrect diagnoses sent to my insurance company which had nothing to do with me. Called 3 times for a referral requested by Dr. Scanlon, which after 1 week never made it to the diagnostic center causing me to cancel. My prescription was never called in after one week which will force me to go through Medicare to get approval. Enough is enough.

Wait time is absolutely ridiculous. Obviously the doctors’ and the staff’s time is more important than everyone else’s. The receptionist was extremely rude. When approached the receptionist shrugged her shoulders and said it is always like this. If that is true, then someone needs to work on the scheduling. We will look for another doctor who has time for her patients. I left after 1.5 hours and would not be given an estimated time to be seen

I have been a patient of Dr. Scanlon for over 5 years. I have had insurance and I haven't had insurance. Either way, she is the only doctor I trust with my medical care. She is very attentive to your health needs, explains everything in detail, takes the time to answer your questions, returns calls if needed, Her medical knowledge is outstanding! There was a problem with the staff years ago but that has been rectified. The staff now is very pleasant and eager to help you. 5 Start doctor!

I've been a patient of Dr. Scanlons since I was 15. She is so kind and truly listens to you when you speak and does all she can to treat and guide you when it comes to your health. In fact, it's like talking to a good friend when she's in the room! I would agree with other reviewers regarding the staff - BUT within the last year, I've seen immense improvement with the phone issues & attitude of the personnel; she's obviously listened to her patients and has worked to improve the issue-bravo! <3

My Daughter goes to Dr. Scanlon and I don't have any insurance at all right now, but I decided to go to her, because I had some personal issues that needed to be addressed. And me personally i like to go to a Female doctor, so I went to her and she was just wonderful..Very sweet, caring, understanding, professional..She is a keeper for sure..I recommend anyone who is looking for a great doctor, to go to Dr. Scanlon..She is NOT a fake, or uncaring like most doctors here in SOUTH. FLA..

Great Doctor!!! Staff is the problem. Not friendly and does not follow through. Called to make an appointment for my annual physical. They said they would call in a pecriotion for blood work. Like I expected they did not call it in, a wasted trip to the lab. I guess I'm looking for a new Dr that has a professional staff. A shame because Dr Scanlon is great

I highly recommend Dr. Scanlon. She sets the standard for "quality of care" in my opinion. She genuinely cares about her patients and helps add to the quality of life of her patients through excellent care and ease of use with respect to communication, education, and understanding how to live a healthier life. Dr. Scanlon is a "super-doctor."

Dr. Scanlon is amazing! She truly cares about me and takes time to listen to any and all concerns and help find solutions. After visiting various primary doctors over the years, I can say Dr. Scanlon is the absolute best and easiest to work with. She is a great person and I highly recommend her!

Although when you actually get time with Dr. Scanlon, you get her undivided attention for 10-15 minutes, she must get her staff from the rudest and most inefficient population. You can call 10-15 times and be promised a return call, a prescription called in or a question answered, the chances of that actually occurring is minimal. Staff treats you as if you were a nuisance.
