Dr. Karen Zino

Dr. Karen Zino is now practicing medicine at Riverside Obstetrics & Gynecology, a full-service medical practice in Greenwich combining the most advanced medical care with natural options for women. After working for a number of years as a physician assistant in the Tri-State area in the fields of primary care and women’s health, Dr. Zino completed her OB/GYN training at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and Monmouth Medical Center, a Drexel University affiliate in New Jersey. The medical team at Riverside Obstetrics & Gynecology includes Russell Turk, M.D., who founded the practice in 2004, and Louise Napoli, N.D., a doctor of naturopathic medicine. What sets Riverside apart is the practice’s personal approach to women's healthcare, blending state-of-the-art medicine—including minimally invasive gynecologic surgical procedures—with holistic therapies. Riverside’s medical team works with patients to develop a highly individualized treatment program, both for those recovering or simply trying to achieve lifelong health and wellness. For example, the physicians conduct an extensive consultation to determine whether menopausal patients are candidates for bioidentical hormones. They counsel patients interested in a natural pregnancy about safely incorporating things like herbal medicine, optimal nutrition and supplementation, homeopathy or an exercise regimen into their pregnancy. They also guide them in achieving a low-intervention birth, avoiding a C-section or safely undergoing vaginal birth after C-section.

Riverside Obstetrics & Gynecology is located just off exit 5 of I-95 at 1200 East Putnam Avenue, Riverside, CT. Visit or call 203.637.3337 for more information or to make an appointment. Most insurance is accepted.
