Who I am:
Dr. Tania Dempsey, MD, Founder of Armonk Integrative Medicine.
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 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.
