Dr. Allmen is a highly competent doctor. She works from a comprehensive, research-based model with an approach that is warm and humorous. Dr. Allmen is very responsive to my communication and follows-up immediately with pending issues (i.e., prescriptions for diagnostic testing, various referrals, testing results). I've been her patient for three years and plan to remain so!

I have been seeing Dr. Allmen for almost four years now. She is always professional and extremely knowledgeable about women's midlife experiences. She is very easy to talk to about private subjects and she injects humor into the conversation making it less uncomfortable. Her exams are thorough and gentle which I appreciate. She listens and helps sort out my chronic health issues so I feel very confident that I am in good hands in her care!

I reached out to Dr. Allmen during the pandemic when my doctor of 40 years retired. I never expected such a smooth and easy transition. She is warm, welcoming and extremely smart. Dr. Allmen has a beautiful and immaculate office, there's no wait time, and she is attentive to all of your needs. She takes plenty of time to listen, she's funny and totally understands the uncomfortable dynamic of a women who is experiencing the harsh symptoms of menopause. Her book Menopause Confidential is a must read. It covers everything you need to know about your changing body. I highly recommend Dr. Allmen!

Dr. Allmen is incredibly compassionate and thorough. She came highly recommended by a world renowned bone metabolic specialist. I had early onset osteoporosis. Dr. Allmen has attended to my bone health needs as well as my midlife needs. I live in New Jersey but drive to NYC to get my once annual visit with Dr. Allmen. She is worth the trip.

Dr. Allmen is probably one of the leading experts in the field of menopause and how is affects women. She has a great personality and she is quick witted and that makes it easy to discuss some of the more embarrassing and emotional aspects of being premenopausal or in menopause. Like a lot of women who live In the suburbs I have been to very good physicians, but they aren’t as versed on this topic. So my advice is she is worth the trip. She is extremely responsive to getting back to you. She is easy to arrange an appointment with. She doesn’t Keep you waiting. She wrote a book, it’s on Amazon and you will understand how she makes this relatable and a normal journey .You leave her office feeling renewed and hopeful that you can enjoy your active life.

Dr. Tara Allmen is a knowledgeable physician whom I highly recommend. A patient of Dr. Allmen for four years, I could not be happier. I first discovered Dr. Allmen when exploring the possibility of beginning HRT as I was in the early stages of menopause and was experiencing the associated side effects. Dr. Allmen who is an expert in this phase of life, was able to answer my questions and assist me in making the right decisions as I navigated this uncertain time. From the beginning of our work together, I have found Dr. Allmen to be prompt, responsive and thorough. I have never had to wait in her office, and she spends a generous amount of time with me each visit. Dr. Allmen is up-beat, positive and pro-active. Her intelligence and sense of humor make our time together a pleasure. She has opened a new office which is lovely, comfortable and spacious. Office staff is pleasant and helpful. I could not ask for more.

I have been a patient of Dr. Allmen's for sixteen years. I have always found her to be a caring and knowledgeable doctor. She takes the time to listen to your issues, evaluate them and give a reasoned solution. Her office is not convenient to my home but I would not switch doctors.

Dr. Allmen has been my doctor for about 13 years. Even though I have moved from New York I still make time for yearly visits with her. I have tried to see other doctors but her specialty makes her a rare breed that is well worth seeking. I advise others to take advantage. You will be rewarded as I was.

Dr. Allmen has been my gynecologist for several years. I have a more holistic interaction with her in my annual visit that I have with any other health professional all year. She updates me and tracks my general health needs, as well as helping navigate all post-menopausal issues.

I found Dr. Allmen to be very responsive. We chatted over phone and by email prior to and after my appointment. She put my mind greatly at ease when she studied my medical records and heard my concerns and confirmed that I am indeed right smack in Perimenopause and that there is a new normal with irregular periods and new symptoms. She asked that my husband come as well which I loved. Due to two years of intense caregiving for my mother and then her subsequent death I had also gained a lot of weight and was experiencing depression and anxiety. This resulted in a dramatic spike in my blood pressure. She refused to start birth control so I could ride out Peri but she saved my life as I now have a cardiologist and got my BP under control. I thank her so much for that wake up call that started my journey back to health.

Dr. Tara Allmen helped make menopause a non-event for me!! Menopausal guidance is her specialty. She likes to ask questions and understand you as a whole person. Dr. Allmen has a vast knowledge of all gynecological issues and a very engaging personality. Her appointments run on schedule with minimal time in the waiting room. I absolutely trust her to consider both the big picture and analyze the small details. I also recommend her book, Menopause Confidential. It is a great reference for so many midlife women’s issues and gives a sense of her upbeat humor and personality.
