Scott was one of my very best friends while in medical school. We shared many rotations together and really bonded in the trenches. My wife, Lynn, and I were present at his wedding to Donna. What wonderful memories! We all moved on after medical school and lost touch with each other which unfortunately so often happens in life. I remember Scott as a wonderful doctor and friend. My heartfelt condolences to Donna and his family.
