  1. To the family of Dr. Pasciolla, my deepest sympathy. I went to Dr. Pasciolla for many years for back problems. He was always upbeat, happy and pleasant. I missed him when he retired and would occasionally but into him around town. He will be sorely missed. God bless you all. My prayers for you all. Donna Prue

  2. We have fond memories of Dr Pasciolla as his patients and his friends . My husband and I started at his group yoga at Prime Climb on Sunday evenings shortly after moving to Wallingford and became patients at his practice on Hall Ave. for 9 yrs prior to his retirement. We would see him volunteering at the Wallingford community dinner on Thanksgiving. and his congenial personality always made everyone feel at ease.
    A very spiritual man he could mix wisdom and humor, always encouraging inner peace and positive thinking. To his beloved family our sincerest condolences.
    Bill and Patricia Stark

  3. Boys, Carollyn,

    I was a patient of Dr. P since 1993 up until he retired and was lucky enough to still see him after his retirement.
    He was a wonderful chiropractor and a wonderful person.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless. I will Miss you Dr. P.
