It's been over 4 years since my last doctors visit and I was in search of a new ob/gyn. I went to Dr. Scarantino's Rego Park/Forest Hills location. The front staff was friendly and competent. I was immediately seen. Both thenurse's and Dr. Scarantino's professionalism and bedside manner were excellent. He listened to my concerns and offered detailed yet easy to understand explanations. I will go back to him and highly recommend his services!

After waiting for more than 2 hours I finally saw the doctor. He was pleasant, professional and offered clear explanations. Furthermore, he was very thorough with his examination and took into consideration any concerns that I had. However,more than one time I contemplated leaving due to wait time! Two hours is absolutely unacceptable to wait for a doctors appointment! The medical secretary up front was sweet , but as for the rest of the staff they were not the friendliest.

I was a patient of Dr. John Di'Iorio for almost 40 years, and seeing a new doctor can be overwhelming. My visit with Dr. Scarantino was one of my best experiences. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Scarantino and my examinationwent very smoothly and he showed compassion and was very gentle during his examination. The staff that I dealt with was also very compassionate and made be feel very comfortable. Thank you for making my experience an easy one.

Dr. Scarantino was highly recommended but I have to say, that I would not go back to his office. #1 front desk receptionist was not friendly or welcoming. She had attitude and could had smile and been a little nicer. #2It was my first time seeing Dr. Scarantino he choose to not do a pap smear. I believe he should have. I dont have a history of any problems but since it was the first time seeing him I think he should have made sure everything was ok with me. Also, I told him and the nurse that I did not get my period in about a month or so and they didnt take my blood for testing or anything they just assumed it was because I am taking birth control, which could be but they are not sure and didnt test me to make sure. I liked the quickness and effectiveness of the office but customer service should have been better. I forwarded my insurance information via zoc doc and had not receive my insurance card as of yet when I went into the office, the rude front desk person tried to give me a hard time and then another person that I believe was the Manager said she did receive my informatin and that it was ok but to next time please bring the card and I can understand that. I just didnt bother to print out the card because since I sent my information online and I did not have a card I assumed it was ok. Front desk lady could have handled the situation a little kinder. Dr. Scarantino seems like a nice and professional doctor but I would not go back to his office I would not recommend him. sorry. Staff needs attitude adjustment.

It was my first time ever going to an OB-GYN so I was extremely nervous. The woman at the front desk was nice about everything and even whispered my personal information, I liked that they weren't shouting my information across soit can be heard by everyone, because I know a couple of offices that do that. The nurse was okay, not much to say about her. And finally, the doctor. Dr. Scarantino, was nothing but nice, and respectable. Being that it was my first time ever, he thoroughly explained every thing he was doing step by step, and also told me when I might feel uncomfortable and why I'm feeling that way, which I liked, I love informative doctors, that talk you through the whole process. I would definitely recommend this place.

The doctor was very nice and had great bedside matter, very informative, answerEd all questions. Unfortunately, I can't say the same about his Stagg at the reception area. The 2 women had nasty faces and attitude which is the last thingyou need when you are going to see an MD and not just for routine checkup but because you're not feeling well.

I was very happy with my visit with Dr Scarantino. Going to a GYN is very intimidating and he and his staff made me very comfortable. He spent time with me (no rush feeling) to explain everything I needed to knowabout my exam and a plan moving forward. He had a sonogram room in his office, so I was able to get that done and there's a lab just down the hall, so I was able to get my bloodwork done there immediately following my appt. Everything done in one place! Plus, super friendly staff and doctor! I highly recommend!!

My visit to Dr. Scarantino was great. The wait time was about 25 minutes. The front desk girl and the med asst. were very nice and professional. When he came into the exam room he introduced himself and his PA whowere both very professional. During the visit his bedside manner was excellent. He was thorough and not quick to rush me out. I would definitely revisit that office again.

Everything went well, he and his staff were very knowledgeable, though I felt a bit like a second-class citizen with the doctor himself. It seemed like his primary focus was on prenatal care and I was was just going in forbirth control. But overall I would recommend, as everything else was great.
