Many women suffer in silence and think they need to just learn to deal with their menopausal symptoms. With a focus on science and evidence based guidelines, you can get the care you need to feel your best.
A fresh approach to menopause health
Dr. Menn has a special interest in menopause management and has dedicated a significant amount of her practice to helping women deal with this transition. Dr. Menn is active in the The North American Menopause Society and became a NAMS Certified Menopause Practitioner in 2009. After going through premature menopause herself, Dr. Menn took the time to become educated on the nuances of caring for perimenopausal and menopausal women. She found that many women were not getting the care they really needed from their often rushed yearly appointments with their providers. Dr. Menn believes that menopause is an excellent time to "pause" and take a deep look into your health and self care. There is not a one size fits all approach to menopause management and Dr. Menn takes an integrative and holistic approach. Dr. Menn can help patients manage hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia , mood changes, sexual dysfunction, weight changes, breast health and more.
