Who’s Fearless? Dr. Tania Dempsey

Who I am:

Dr. Tania Dempsey, MD, Founder of Armonk Integrative Medicine.

My company:

As an Integrative Physician, I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of multisystem diseases including Autoimmunity, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and Chronic Infections, such as Lyme Disease.


My fear:

My biggest fears are going out on my own when others doctors were joining larger groups and building a fee for service practice without accepting insurance.

How I overcame it:

An important part of my practice is educating my patients as well as those that cannot see me. As a result of overcoming my fear of putting myself out there on social media, I am now able to reach over 10,000 patients through the educational content I put out on Lyme Disease, Bartonella, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and more. I overcame my fear of going out on my own and starting a private practice when everyone said I couldn’t do it.

What happened next:

When I started my practice in 2011, I had a handful of patients that followed me from my former group practice. Within 3 years I had over 500 patients and a 6 month waiting list.
