Dear Patients, Colleagues and Friends,
It is with deepest sadness that we inform you of the passing of our beloved founding partner, Dr. Gloria Edis, on January 28, 2013. She died peacefully after a relatively short illness. All of us at Scarsdale Pediatrics will miss her more than any words can say.
After opening Scarsdale Pediatrics in 1980, Dr. Edis helped to raise more than a generation of children from birth into adulthood. Her calming and reassuring style of treating patients was something that could not be taught in medical school. She possessed a great combination of intelligence, dedication, caring and empathy.
Dr. Edis was a great mentor to us. We all learned how to truly take care of families in our practice - not in the medical sense, but in a holistic sense of being available when we are needed. She fostered an atmosphere of always trying to satisfy our patients and their families. She would never say no to adding extra appointments for sick children at the end of a long day or to any other accommodations requested by families. As much as wanting to keep her patients healthy and heal the ones who weren’t, she wanted to please everyone all the time.
Dr. Edis was also a role model to many young women. Not only did she graduate from NYU Medical College in 1963 when there were very few women in the medical field, but she finished at the top of her class. She founded this practice over thirty years ago, also at a time when men outnumbered women significantly in medicine. As an entrepreneur, she started the practice with nothing and built it into one of the more thriving medical groups in our area. Her tireless and relentless work ethic can truly not be duplicated. She once showed us an article about a 90 year old pediatrician who was still seeing patients. She said that that was going to be her some day. We really had every reason to believe her and are saddened that she won’t realize that dream. Nevertheless, since her greatest joy (next to spending time with her children and grandchildren) seemed to be taking care of patients, she was truly blessed to be able to do so for over thirty years.
Our office will continue to function at full capacity. You may call to make appointments with Dr. Lee, Dr. Bookner or Dr. Halpern. We are still available by phone 24/7/365.
Condolence cards for the family can be sent to our office and we will forward them to her children. This is not an easy time for us, nor will it be for those of you who knew and loved Dr. Edis. However, we will all persevere, as we know that’s what Dr. Edis would have wanted. After all, this is her practice and you are her patients, and she wouldn’t ever want anyone to be unhappy.
