An Interview With Dr. Scarantino

How long have you worked at the Woman’s Health Pavilion?

I joined the Woman’s Health Pavilion in 1999 and since that time, have been dedicated and working hard to providing women with the attention and care that is often not found in many OB/GYN practices.

What is your work philosphy?

To provide quality health care for women in the 21st century requires a physician who is willing to devote the time and patience to listen to a woman’s needs and attend to her problems–something that many health care providers are not willing to do. I ensure when I see my patients that I couple undivided attention with sound medical judgement; I want to hear what your issues may be and offer you viable solutions, as we travel along your healthcare journey together.

What makes your job rewarding?

As a practicing obstetrician and gynecologist, I manage both pregnancy and gynecologic-related women’s healthcare issues. Clearly, for me, the joy of assisting a woman who is pregnant and guiding her through her pregnancy, culminating in the healthy birth of her child/children, has to be the pinnacle of my professional career. Having delivered over 5,000 babies, I can say that each and every time, it is a joyous experience and I am privileged to share in a couple’s pregnancy and birthing experience. Nevertheless, the same enthusiasm and attention that I offer my obstetrical patients I share with my non-pregnant patients in helping them with all of their gynecological needs.

What led you to the field of obstetrics and gynecology?

I cannot ignore the impact that being the son of an obstetrician/gynecologist has had upon my life. My father was an exemplary physician and gentleman and I recognized early in my life how much he cared for his patients and how much they respected him (it is always a joy to meet patients he cared for and children he delivered and have them tell me what a wonderful man and doctor he was). How could I not be drawn to a career such as that! It certainly had an impact upon my career choice and has been complicit in influencing my career path. I strive to and can only hope to be the physician he was and follow the path that he paved for me.

Do you have any special recognition in your field of work?

I have been recognized as an “outstanding physician” by numerous, independent organizations and have been appointed to Clinical Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Hofstra/Northwell School of Medicine. In addition, I am the acting Director of Obstetrics for The Woman’s Health Pavilion.

Do you have any special interests of areas of specialty in OB/GYN?

Outside of obstetrics, in gynecology, some areas of interest for me are: the adolescent patient, as I steer them through the tumultuous waters of their adolescent years, with all of the attendant hormonal and teen issues they face; managing abnormal Pap smears; menstrual cycle irregularities; transitioning patients through the peri-menopause; advanced and minimally invasive surgery.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

During the down-time that I have, I spend it with my beautiful family. I am truly blessed to have a supportive wife and four healthy children to enjoy life and all of its rewards.
