George Pavlik, hematologist and oncologist who gave everything to patients

George Pavlik, 89, a Pitt School of Medicine graduate who taught as a clinician and professor at the school for many years, died on March 27, 2020, of complications from multiple system atrophy.

Also a hematologist and oncologist at the former St. Francis Medical Center and UPMC Passavant-McCandless for more than 40 years, Pavlic cared deeply about his patients and brought comfort to them, keeping his home number listed in the phone book and making middle-of-the-night house calls when necessary.
