My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Developing a trusted partnership in wellness between doctor and patient is at the core of my MDVIP practice. In a welcoming office environment, patient visits will be unhurried to allow sufficient time to listen and attend to your health concerns. This enables me to more completely incorporate your viewpoint, needs and goals; whether we are working toward maintaining a healthy life-style or discussing the diagnosis and treatment of an acute or chronic medical condition. I am dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and personal primary care service available. I strive to assist you in navigating our country's complex medical system and I will steadily encourage you to be an active participant and partner in optimizing your health.

Bruce and I are hiking on a glacier located on Mont Blanc in the Swiss/Italian Alps. This was less than two and half months after I broke my ankle in Greece and had ankle surgery back home. I am grateful for the referrals Dr. Scanlon gave me that made the surgery and healing process go so well.

I switched to MDVIP and Dr. Scanlon a couple of years ago because I felt that I was not getting the kind of medical care I wanted. I was seeing a number of specialists, but no one was keeping track of what the other was doing, and I was afraid that something would fall between the cracks. Now, I feel that there is one qualified medical professional overseeing all of my medical care. If I am… See more

As you will note in the photo Dr Scanlon and I have a much different view of the world. I see it from on high while her view is more down to earth. In my case I have suffered all my life from a cyclops condition which Dr Scanlon has caringly treated. Before her medical intervention I had one large eye in the middle of my forehead.

I know that is hard to believe but true. Needless… See more

So happy you are my doctor - thank you for everything you do!!

from Dr. Dianne N. in MD March 11, 2018 for Sharon A. Scanlon, MD, FACP

Dr. Scanlon has been my personal physician for a long time now, so she already knows my very complicated background before I even go in for my annual physical :-) Having her know that background is very important to me, and helps her identify any specialists that I might need on an on-going basis. Most recently I had contracted walking pneumonia without realizing it. Took me probably toooo… See more

from Nancy in MD March 9, 2018 for Sharon A. Scanlon, MD, FACP

I have known Dr. Sharon Scanlon as my doctor for many years. Her wellness philosophy has evolved with her practice. I first learned about the Mediterranean diet from her years ago, before everyone was talking about it. She is always helping me by looking ahead with life changes coming up. A salute to Dr. Scanlon!

from Neal in MD March 6, 2018 for Sharon A. Scanlon, MD, FACP

Our family loves Doctor Scanlon. Her positive outlook on our lives and the input that she provides at every opportunity have made staying well much easier. We would not be as healthy as we are without her guidance, so if Doctor Scanlon suggests that we do something, we do it!! She makes us feel as though we are the most important people in the world, actually like VIPs, and thus her being a… See more

from Roberta in DC February 27, 2018 for Sharon A. Scanlon, MD, FACP

Dr. Sharon Scanlon has been my doctor for 30 years. Throughout all that time she has consistently been, thorough, thoughtful, knowledgeable, helpful, warm, approachable and a good listener. She knows me and my body's quirks and issues. I can't -- and I don't want to -- imagine having another doctor.

from Dale in MD February 28, 2018 for Sharon A. Scanlon, MD, FACP

Even though my 98 year old mom is in an Assisted Living facility, Dr. Scanlon has always made time to visit her when the need arose. We never had to beg. Dr. Scanlon would visit my mom for any need or problem, at any time. Dr. Sharon Scanlon is fantastic and is absolutely THE BEST.

from Donna in MD February 28, 2018 for Sharon A. Scanlon, MD, FACP
