Serving the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire of Georgia and South Carolina.
Dr. Jami Scanlon’s desire to help children and work with the sciences created a clear path for the rest of her life. It was never a question for her: she was meant to become a pediatrician. After earning her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in Old Westbury, New York, she completed her residency at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, New York and was ready to start her journey.
Since then, Dr. Scanlon has been working as a pediatrician, helping children be the healthiest they can be. In addition to being board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, Dr. Scanlon is also an active member of several medical societies such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Georgia Chapter of Pediatrics.
“I really love getting to know the families,” Dr. Scanlon said when asked what she loves most about her work. “When you’re treating children, you also have the extreme privilege of watching them grow and turn into amazing people.”
One particular patient will always stick with Dr. Scanlon: an 11-year-old who was diagnosed with cancer. This patient’s incredible drive, persistent strength, and caring personality are what inspire Dr. Scanlon to work her hardest every day.
Outside of the office, Dr. Scanlon loves to run, work out, and listen to rock and pop music. Her husband, twin boys, and their rescue-dog "Bella" keep her busy otherwise.
“I would choose this job over and over again if I had too, no matter if I’m reflecting on the past or looking to the future,” Dr. Scanlon explained. “I am in the right place, and I am extremely happy.”
Dr. Scanlon and the staff have all been so wonderful when it comes to the care of my children. Thank you so much for listening intently and being so thorough.
Dr Scanlon is wonderful and so good with my daughter!
Very good visit, office was very clean. Dr. Scanion is the best with the kids, they just turned 5 and have been going there since birth. The nurse was very good with them too.
Service was good, everyone was friendly and the doctor took the time to get to know my child to establish care. It would have been nice to see some updates made the facility though.
Always a nice and efficient experience.
We love Dr Scanlon!
My experience is always great when we have an appointment. Thank you South Coast!
Dr. Scanlon is so compassionate, patient, inclusive and respectful. We are so grateful to have her on our care team.
Dr. Scanlon is a blessing!
We love Dr. Scanlon and her nurse Paula Larry! She is thorough, fast and easy to talk too! She is one of the reasons we come to South Coast in Rincon. Thanks Paula!
Dr. Scanlon and Nurse Paula are absolutely brilliant and beautiful souls and Iâ€™m so glad I chose this particular Southcoast office! Dr. Scanlon interacted with my children, particularly my 2 autistic boys, in such a warm and welcoming manner. She really understood them and took the time to get to know us as a family. That was not really not heartwarming but extremely comforting considering weâ€™re new in town. I can not thank her enough!
