Ratings for Dr. Tara Allmen
I was a gyn patient of Dr. Allmen many years ago and loved her. Alas, she moved on to other things (i.e., taking care of perimenopausal and menopausal women). How fortunate was I a few years ago to be reading an article about perimenopause when I came across her name. She has been a guiding light through a challenging time and I would, and have, recommend her to anyone who is on this journey. In fact, I keep a copy of her book, "Menopause Confidential," on my nightstand for reference!
I feel so fortunate to have found Dr. Allmen. I was suffering from a laundry list of perimenopausal symptoms, and neither my regular physician nor my gynecologist seemed to know anything about it. Finally I found my way to Dr. Allmen’s office, and she knew just what to do. Not only is she super-knowledgeable, she also has a great sense of humor. All my stress and confusion is gone, and I feel great! Now I am confident that I can successfully navigate this phase of my life and beyond.
I consider myself one of the lucky ones, I relocated to NYC last year and my biggest fear was to find a GYN who could help me through menopause as I had in Baltimore, MD. I was referred to Dr. Allmen. From my very first encounter, a phone call to meeting her in her office and then buying her book has been the best thing that has happened to me. When I left her office, I was in tears; so happy and relieved she knew exactly what I was going through. I followed her verbal orders in the office, but bought the book to get the rest of the goodies to get me through my menopause process. I have recommended to my family and friends, it is a MUST read for all women. there were times while reading the book, I was laughing out loud. I have been following Dr. Allmen's advice for almost 1 year, I feel great, I am losing weight, mentally clearer. I am so, so thankful for being able to meet Dr. Allman and now have my bible to get me through menopause. Thank you Dr. Allmen!!!
Dr Allmen is not your typical doctor. She is funny, full of energy, caring, explains everything in plain talk, no nonsense. She spends as much time as needed with you. I went to her 6 months after I got early menopause following surgery at age 35 and I finally got out of brain fog, insomnia and night sweats.
I met Dr.Allmen when my life was in a whirl wind . I was diagnosed with Brca 2 gene mutation and carrying a black cloud on my shoulders . I needed someone to talk to and she has been my guardian angel ever since . She connected me with surgeons to speak to even just to give me reassurance and knowledge for all my decision making . She has always gotten back to me during every situation. She's personable , professional , witty and up beat . No matter how exceptionally busy she is creating books (Menopause Confidential is a Bible in woman's health ) she finds the time to returns emails and phone calls . She takes the anxiety off because you know you are in great hands and she has a positive approach, and she educates all of her patients . I'm grateful for her and feel for anyone that doesn't have a Dr. Allmen! ~LBell
Dr. Allmen is like a breath of fresh air. Generally I dread going to doctors and the experience is usually equally dreadful. Not so with Dr. Allmen. She is knowledgeable caring and has helped me with my issues. My previous gyno was not helpful at all and certainly not as knowledable about menopause issues. Highly recommend.
Dr. Allmen is a wonderful, caring and accessible doctor. She always responds quickly, is very knowledgeable about women's health and can definitely calm your fears and frazzled nerves during the menopause transition. I wholeheartedly recommend her to any female who is overwhelmed, confused and in need of answers when trying to manage this difficult mid-life issue. She also has a great sense of humor which is a breath of fresh air from many other physicians I have seen over the years.
