About Dr. Scanlon

Philosophy of care

I place a strong emphasis on patient-centered care and preventative medicine with a holistic approach. I will enjoy working with you on a path of healthy lifestyle choices. I enjoy advocating change and helping you take control of your own health through shared medical decisions.

Why I entered medicine

I found the thought of helping others to be attractive and fulfilling. I honestly believe our greatest purpose in life is to serve others, and I find it joyful. Family medicine specifically allows me to serve all aspects of life. I address a wide variety of concerns and encourage preventative medicine – while establishing life-long relationships with people. I also enjoy providing immediate relief to many of my patient's concerns through procedures and osteopathic manipulative treatments.

Community involvement

I am thankful and humbled by the opportunity to support CURE International, a faith-based organization that brings hope and healing to children with correctible disabilities. Many of these children have been cast out by their immediate community, but thanks to the wonderful physicians and their facilities across the world, hope and healing can be restored through restorative and correctible surgeries. It is awesome to see the impact these changes have in the lives of the children as well as their caregivers.

Personal interests

I really enjoy my time outdoors. I love to go fishing whenever I can. I enjoy hiking, working out at the gym or at home if need be. I am open to always trying new things that pertain to my physical health. I love visiting the beach with family. Overall I try to maintain a very active lifestyle with my wife and children and enjoy making memories with them. I also love to cook and am a pretty adventurous eater. Another one of my greatest joys in life is my faith.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
