Fifteen years this coming August, Dr. Lino Ossanna founded and opened his medical practice Women’s Health Now in Queen Creek. He specializes in obstetrics and gynecology. He has more than 20 years’ experience in health care. In fact, he was the first practicing OB/GYN in Queen Creek.
Ossanna began his career as a pharmacist and then completed medical school and training in OB/GYN at the University of Buffalo. Ossanna also has received additional training in minimally invasive procedures. He is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology.
Ossanna is often asked to speak on issues such as menopause, treatment of menstrual irregularities and options for birth control. He has been named one of the nation’s top obstetrician and gynecologists by the Consumers Research Council.
But it’s not all work for Ossanna. He is and avid scuba diver and he is a member of the Cousteau Society.
“We are a local medical practice,” Ossanna said. “We will have been in practice in Queen Creek for 15 years come this August. When we had our grand opening in 2007, the Independent sent a photographer to take the grand opening ribbon cutting with the mayor at the time.”
That photo was recreated with Queen Creek Council Member Dawn Oliphant.
