Dr. Patsalis was my Primary Care doctor for over a decade when he worked for Henry Ford in St. Clair Shores. He was the most kind hearted, patient doctor I have ever had, and as a three time Cancer survivor, I’ve had my share. My friend and I were casually discussing awesome doctors and I brought up his name as being my favorite and she told me she had heard of his passing. I couldn’t believe it so I had to Google it for myself, and here I am. I am so very saddened to hear this news especially now 10 months later. I’m devastated that he didn’t make it to retirement. He of all people deserved it. What a loss to the world this is. May he enjoy the abundance of Heaven. May his family be comforted in knowing how many people loved this man, as I did. Rest In Peace kind servant.

When I prepared to adopt my daughter from Thailand, who was 5 years old at the time, I asked Dr. Patsalis if he knew what medical care she would need upon arrival home. He said, "I don't know right now, but I will know by the time she is here." I believe this story illustrates the type of doctor and person he was: humble, hard working, and with a heart of gold. He cared for me and my children for decades and I am truly saddened to hear of his passing. The loss of Dr. Patsalis is tragic. My condolences to his family and friends.

Dr Patsalis was a colleague practicing here on the Eastside of Detroit, always a pleasant guy, and a kind, caring, great doctor. One of the guys who always seemed to have a smile on his face. God Bless him and his family

Dr. Patsalis will be greatly missed. I worked with him at Wayne County Jail, as a Nurse Practitioner. He was my supervising physician, manager and mentor. He was approachable and had a kind heart.

I’m deeply saddened by this news. Im lucky I was able to give him a hug goodbye and thank him for sharing his knowledge /experiences with me a month ago when I left the position. He will be missed by the many people he has touched.
