Guest Profile

Dr. Tara Allmen

Dr. Tara Allmen

Dr. Tara Allmen is one of America's leading experts in menopausal medicine. She is a Nationally Certified Menopause Practitioner and highly respected in the medical community.

After earning her bachelor's degree from Johns Hopkins University and her medical degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, she completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, San Francisco.

Dr. Allmen started her professional career in a private obstetrical practice but ultimately decided to follow her passion for menopausal medicine. She joined Columbia Presbyterian's Center for Menopause, Hormonal Disorders and Women's Health in 1999, focusing her practice on perimenopause and menopause.

In the last decade, Dr. Allmen has educated thousands of medical professionals around the country on menopausal medicine. She has also been featured on television, both in the United States and internationally.

In 2006, Dr. Allmen established The Allmen Foundation, a non-profit organization. The Foundation supports causes primarily involving women's health, childhood education and animal welfare. The North American Menopause Society, the leading non-profit organization dedicated to menopausal women's health, refers to Dr. Allmen as a "Visionary" contributor.

Having identified the frustrations of many women regarding getting objective, scientifically-based advice on menopause or access to professionals who specialize in menopausal medicine, Dr. Allmen created Menopause in an Hour.

Dr. Allmen lives in New York City with her husband, Lawrence M. Kimmel, their two children, and a small dog named Sadie.
