Michael Augustino, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., has been an established board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist in the Broward and Dade areas for over 25 years. He received his medical degree from State University of New York at Buffalo and later completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital. Dr. Augustino has worked in various group practices throughout his career, but feels that many have become so impersonal, which is why he decided to open Gentle Gynecology and Obstetrics.
After over 30 years of working with women, Dr. Augustino is now beginning to provide care for a second generation of patients and returning patients. Along with Obstetrics and Gynecology, he has taken a special interest in counseling and treating women with hormone therapy. Dr. Augustino has gone through an elaborate training and special certification to bring Bio-Identical Hormone therapy to his patients in order to compensate them for the loss of ovarian function.
In addition to practicing OB/GYN, Dr. Augustino has served the community as a voluntary professor and educator, lecturing engaged couples as they prepare for marriage. He has also served on the executive board of the hospital at which he currently practices, Memorial Hospital West. When asked what he does to improve the patient experience, Dr. Augustino responded with, “I feel as a dedicated ob gyn practitioner, the relationship between patient and physician can be better established with personal care. That is of the utmost importance in regards to healthcare.” Patients can feel confident visiting Dr. Augustino, who has been awarded Best OB/GYN of Weston 10 years in a row!
Dr. Augustino is the proud father of three adult boys. When he’s not with patients, he enjoys exercising and playing sports.
