Long Island New York OBGYN Front Photo



Dear Dr. Sadaty,
Thank you so much for not believing my claim that what I was feeling was "just that I had a big dinner." Your expertise and professionalism almost assuredly saved my life. While my road has been complicated a bit from the embolus, I am truly amazed at how quickly I was recovering from your excellent surgery.

Your caring and sweet demeanor kept me calm during a very difficult time, and I am very grateful. I know you will continue to be not only the wonderful doctor you are, but also the compassionate clinician, who will make many women after me feel as confident as I did in those trying times.

You are truly a life-saver!!

Thanks for everything.

With Love,
S. P.

Expecting In Cold Weather
Wearing a seat belt is a must - even with that big belly - especially when icy roads make even the best of drivers somewhat unpredictable. How to wear it right? Place the horizontal strap across your hips and under your belly, and the diagonal strap over your shoulders and between your breasts, says Anita Sadaty, M.D., an ob-gyn at North Shore University Hospital, in Manhasset, New York. If it's stormy out, or road conditions are hazardous, don't drive unless it's necessary."

Dr. Anita Sadaty has appeared in numerous newspapers, magazines, and professional publications, to discuss many diverse Obstetrics and Gynecology issues.

Dr Anita Sadaty quoted by Remedy's Health MagazineDr. Sadaty was quoted in an article on Healthy Aging: One minute you're cozying up with your partner to watch your favorite TV series, and the next, you're screaming at him to give you the remote. Your moods seem to go from blissful to boiling in a heartbeat - or, you become irritable, anxious, and capable of bursting into tears without much provocation - welcome to the world of midlife mood swings.

While no one knows exactly how many women experience these ups and downs during middle age, it's clear that they are quite common. One study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that the prevalence of mood swings varied from 11 percent to 21 percent during perimenopause (the stage leading up to menopause) and from 8 percent to 38 percent after menopause (the phase that begins one year after your last period).

Here is a reason you may be feeling emotionally volatile: Your hormones can't decide if they're coming or going

Emotional health is intimately linked to our hormones. "The female hormones estrogen and progesterone interact with brain neurotransmitters such as serotonin and GABA," explains Anita Sadaty, M.D., clinical assistant professor at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine. "Both of these brain neurochemicals are implicated in depression, PMS and anxiety reactions," she adds.

During perimenopause, estrogen and progesterone production are out of whack. You can have excess estrogen one day and very little the next. "This leads to a whole host of emotional symptoms, such as depression, irritability, anxiety, and panic attacks," says Sadaty. During menopause, the lack of estrogen and progesterone can cause mood swings as well, she adds.

Dr Anita Sadaty named Best OBGYN Long Island NYDr. Anita Sadaty was named one of the best Obstetrics and Gynocology physicians on Long Island, New York in the 2014 Edition of Best Of L.I. The honor was based on surveys and reader feedback and also took into account Sadaty's successful track record in hormone therapy and other women's wellness issues.

Dr Anita Sadaty quoted in Parents MagazineDuring pregnancy your center of gravity shifts, which increases your risk of falling — especially on icy sidewalks. To help avoid taking a spill, Dr. Sadaty advises wearing flat, rubber-soled footwear with a tread (avoid leather-soled shoes, which are especially slippery). Hold on to handrails whenever they're available, and try not to carry anything in front of you, which throws o! your balance and occupies your hands, making it more di"cult to cushion a fall. If you do slip, take your time getting up. Gently turn to one side, then get to your hands and knees, and if possible, use something for stability — such as a car-door handle or a stair rail — as you bring yourself upright. Then give your doctor a quick call, just to be safe. "Luckily your baby is extremely wellprotected in the womb," Dr. Sadaty assures.

Winter is cold-and-flu season, and pregnant woman are especially at risk because the body naturally suppresses the immune system in order to protect the baby, which is essentially foreign tissue. So wash your hands frequently and avoid anyone who's sick. Get plenty of zzz's too. "Studies suggest that the number of infection-fighting T-cells goes down when you don't sleep enough," says Dr. Sadaty. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists also recommends getting an influenza vaccination during flu season, as women are more prone to serious complications from the flu during pregnancy. (Just avoid the nasal spray flu vaccine, which isn't recommended for moms-to-be.) If you do get sick, you can safely treat your symptoms with acetaminophen, throat lozenges, pseudoephedrine, saline nasal sprays, and cough medicine, according to Dr. Sadaty. Stay away from cold-and-flu combos, which may contain drugs that aren't safe while you're expecting. You can also relieve stuffiness by adding a few drops of lavender oil to hot water and breathing in the vapors. Other remedies: sipping warm tea with honey and lemon to soothe your throat and eating chicken soup, which is thought to have anti-inflammatory and mucus-thinning e!ects, Dr. Sadaty says.

Anita Sadaty MD on NBC Health SegmentFDA Approves Easy-To-Use Ovulation Test
Test Uses Saliva, And Is Considered More Accurate Than Conventional Tests
March 21, 2002 -- NEW YORK -- The Food and Drug Administration recently approved a new saliva ovulation test that can give women who are planning to get pregnant a better idea when they are most fertile. The Donna Ovulation Predictor works like this: The woman would lick a little plastic disk, put it into a lipstick-size holder, and wait a few minutes. When the saliva is dry, the tester can look through the lighted microscope lens, and look for a distinctive fern pattern -- a well-known hormonal effect.
"As you approach ovulation the estrogen level in your body increases. This then increases the salt content in the saliva," said Dr. Anita Sadaty, an obstetrician and gynecologist. "So when you place the saliva and it dries on the microscope slide, under the microscope, you can see a crystallized salt pattern. You know it is a fern pattern that appears as you approach ovulation."health cast In addition to being somewhat more convenient than the urine needed for other ovulation predictors, the Donna gives women a three- to four- day advance notice of ovulation -- an advantage when trying to plan a family. "The advantage is for women who have irregular cycles," Sadaty said. "Women who have erratic cycles, or lengthily cycles, they really have no idea when they're going to be ovulating." The Donna is not reliable, though, for women who are taking hormones such as birth control pills or fertility drugs.

Anita Sadaty MD on Preconception.comCouples with fertility problems can often improve their chances of conceiving by accurately predicting when and if the woman is ovulating. Available in more than a dozen different forms, ovulation predictors are making it easier for women to detect when they are ovulating. With so many varieties on the market, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you.
"It's hard to believe that a device so simple and inexpensive can give women the power to accurately and effectively predict their most fertile time of the month," says Dr. Anita Sadaty, an obstetrician and gynecologist in Great Neck, N.Y. "I predict that Donna will save thousands of women the anxiety and discomfort of costly infertility treatments and medications, allowing them to conceive safely and naturally on their own."
