“Dr. Scotti believed in practicing medicine with kindness, in giving his patients hope, and in helping the sick to find humor amid the darkness. His natural curiosity and insatiable thirst for information resulted in several decades of accumulated knowledge that led him to become a renowned diagnostician, who was able to solve even the most difficult and complex medical mysteries.
Never rushed in a world that seems to keep accelerating, he took the time to give each of his patients his all, and would never
leave the examining room until his job was truly finished.”

Loved ones of Dr. Angelo Scotti in his obituary

“Born to humble beginnings on the west side of Red Bank, Dr. Scotti enriched the lives of all who were fortunate enough to have known him —whether that be as one of the tens of thousands of patients he so skillfully treated over his 56 years as a practicing physician, or as one of the extremely lucky few to have been a member of his family, especially those who were raised by him,” family said in his obituary. “However, this was most evident to his wife, who has known for over half a century, that she married a truly remarkable man.”

His education and training histories included academic work at Harvard University, The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, the Mayo Clinic, the Center for Disease Control and multiple board certifications, Dr. Scotti returned to Monmouth County to use his background and experience to treat people in his own community. 

He is survived by: his beloved wife, Geraldine; his sons David, Daniel and Michael; his granddaughters, Alexandra and Samantha (husband Jason); his great-grandchildren, Lucas, Ella and Olivia; his sister, Diana; and Diana’s daughters, Michelle and Nanette (deceased).

All services will be held privately. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
