What People Say About Dr. Tara Allmen, MD

Dr. Allmen quite literally saved me. She truly cares about her patients and takes the time to get to know their healthy history, challenges and current concerns, and then works diligently with patients to map out a customized plan of action. While I was half way around the world and had some concerns and questions about a treatment plan, I emailed her and much to my surprise, she responded almost immediately. Even though it was 6am on Saturday morning in NY, she cared enough about me and my health to call me and discuss everything with me for half an hour. I couldn't believe it! No doctor has ever done that for me. She really went above and beyond the call of duty, and her expert advice has helped prevent an unpleasant fate that I once thought was unavoidable. She's truly amazing. And her book Menopause Confidential is absolutely brilliant and has taught me so much. She's incredible!

It is impossible to overstate what Dr. Allmen, with her experience, knowledge, brilliance (and humor), has done for me since I began menopause. Before you see her, you have to read her incredible book- Menopause Confidential; and she is even better in person! Everything Dr. Allmen advised me to do worked as she predicted. And, she is always on call to answer questions by email or phone. It is so sad that there are not other doctors like her, but there probably couldn't be. She is that good.

Dr. Allmen is one of those doctors that still starts every consultation with a conversation about you, and what is going on with your body. Three years after moving to Florida I still travel to New York to see Dr. Allmen, she truly is irreplaceable for me. Sent from my iPad

I started seeing Dr. Allmen for menopause-related complaints several years ago. It was a breath of fresh air to have a doctor take my symptoms seriously, and help me find the right course of hormone replacement therapy to alleviate mood swings and low libido. Moreover, Dr. Allmen is easy to talk to, witty, and makes the OB/GYN visit actually a fun experience!

My first visit with any GYN was 51 years ago, so I've seen quite a few. By far, Dr.Allmen is my absolute favorite! Over the past 20 years she has helped me thru menopause, ovarian cysts, & all the everyday issues of being a woman of a certain age. I'm not just a collection of lady parts to her, I'm a person. She's concerned about my heart, brain, colon, sleep, exercise, etc. A few years ago shewrote a book, Menopause Confidential, which I recommend to all women & the men who care about them

Having worked with Dr. Allmen for many years now, I cannot say enough to recommend her if you are looking for a doctor who doesn’t ever keep you waiting, treats you like a person, not just a patient, is incredibly bright and knowledgeable, available anytime via email, and is generally just easy to talk to about any issue you may have.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Allmen for about 4 years now. I value her expertise as a gynecologist but also her guidance on overall health is a major plus. She also takes time to get to know you and your lifestyle. I’m very happy that I was able to find her. I would also highly recommend her book.

Dr. Allmen went above and beyond to help me. I was a new patient, had not even met her yet, but she heard the urgency in my email and came in to meet me the next day on a holiday . She knew right away how to help me. She is AMAZING!!

After a long search for a smart gynecologist specializing in menopause issues, I'm grateful to have found Dr. Allmen. She is extremely knowledgable, always up to date, takes the time to explain pros and cons, and was willing to make a call to my hematologist and present 'my case' at a conference before we decided on a treatment plan. She takes the time to prep so she knows who you are before you walk into her office for an appointment, will speak with you in depth...plus, she's fun and charming.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Allmen for 3 years now. She is extremely knowledgeable and has helped me tremendously. She really cares about her patients and takes the time to get to know you. Her advice is genuine concern for your overall health, not only GYN care. As an added bonus she has an amazing sense of humor and makes you feel super comfortable.

I found out about Dr. Allmen by reading her book. I decided I wanted to become a patient for I knew that her approach and humor in regard to all things menopause was just what I needed. She is smart, and compassionate and did I mention funny. I have never experienced the service I have received by Dr. Allmen by another doctor. If I could give 10 starts I would.

Dr. Allmen has simply been Godsend in this sea of mismanaged healthcare system. I have not seen a doctor that gives so much importance to the "patient" rather than blindly following the system. She focuses on addressing the medical issues and has helped my Mom revive from a severe episode of anemia that she has been suffering for years. My mom always says "Dr. Allmen gave me my life back." She is very accessible through phone and emails and I have never seen this dedication with any other doctor
