Information about the menopause service

Dr Theodora Kalentzi, an experienced GP with a passion and advanced training in menopause care, has set up a menopause service at her private GP clinic. This is an enhanced service for women who are going through or are worried about the menopause.


At the clinic, you receive personalised care. You are given time to discuss your symptoms and concerns in detail. You have a full assessment, which may include tests such as blood tests and a DEXA bone scan. We go through with you the risks of osteoporosis, cardiovascular events and breast cancer and what can be done to reduce these risks.


We discuss management options , what you can do for yourself, the range of treatments available including hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and any associated risks and benefits.


We explore with you what suits you best based on your background history, symptoms, beliefs and lifestyle. Not one treatment works the same for every woman nor one size fits all. Sometimes you may need to try 2 or 3 treatments to find the one best suited for you.


Our objective is to help you take control of your symptoms in the most suitable and safe way. The overall aim is to find the option that feels right and works for you.

The clinic

Why the interest in menopause

I was a medical student when I first witnessed someone with debilitating hot flushes and sweats. It was my mother. She was in her early 50s suffering in silence, overloaded with juggling the competing demands of running a business and looking after her family. 


It was very sad that she felt unable to talk about it because the norm was just to put up with it.


Fast forward 30 years and the menopause remains a challenge, still misunderstood by many. More than ever, it carries the dreaded perception that ‘we are getting old’ in a society that celebrates youth and not maturity.  Read the full story

Menopause is the end of having the ‘time of the month’. Could it be the start of having ‘the time of your life’?

You are worried, you are unsure, you are confused. Is it the menopause? You may still have periods, they may be irregular or they may have stopped. You know something has changed which seems to be affecting your work, your family or your relationships.


You may notice changes in your body, emotions, or mental state. Your hair is thinning on your head and is growing on your face, your memory becomes foggy, your sex drive is a thing of the past, you become sweaty out of the blue, your mood changes like the British weather.


Maybe you have been taking HRT and you are worried about breast cancer and what happens to your symptoms if you stop the treatment.


Whether you are approaching or have gone through the menopause you may be thinking ‘this is it’, ‘I am getting old’, ‘my best years are gone’, ‘I don’t feel feminine anymore’.


But it needn’t be like that.


You may spend more than a third of your life in the menopause and you deserve a good life. Nowadays, there are various treatments and ways to manage your symptoms, there is more evidence about the treatments to help you decide what is more safe and appropriate for you.


Menopause shouldn’t put a pause in the way you live your life.


When you have been busy juggling a career, looking after a family/partner, focusing on the daily stresses and the menopause hits you, what better time to start a new chapter, what better time to look after you.

Feedback from our patients

Considerate, knowledgeable and approachable Dr. I found Dr Kalentzi very knowledgable and approachable. She was very thorough in finding out about my symptoms and recommended relevant treatment. Her bedside manner and consideration for my comfort were very good. I will definitely see her for a follow up appointment and would recommend her.

Dr Theodora Kalentzi is so lovely and empathetic and put me at ease immediately. She is fantastically knowledgeable and talked through all the options with me. She is willing to discuss and prescribe all the latest innovations and discuss all the pros and cons. I cannot recommend her highly enough and I feel so grateful to have found her.

Came away fully informed about HRT and what is right for me. I have been frustrated with seeing doctors through the health system and the various opinions and advice. Prime Medical gave me as much time as I needed to question and fully understand HRT. I saw Dr Theodora Kalentzi and she listened, questioned and was very open about the different treatments, pros and cons for HRT treatment. I feel confident in the approach that I have chosen based on what I have learnt and look forward to my follow up visit and progress in a few months.

I had an appointment with Dr Kalentzi to discuss the symptoms I was having following the menapause. She was very thorough in investigating my overall health and symptoms, and very patient answering all my questions. I asked to have some blood tests to check various levels of hormones, iron, B12 and thyroid, Dr K helped group the blood tests together to make it the most cost effective. I received the results two days later and they confirmed the low levels of progesterone and oestrogen that Dr K suspected and I have started the HRT she prescribed. I also had a smear test and it was great to have it all sorted in one appointment. I would highly recommend Dr Kalentzi and won't hesitate to see her again.

My appointment with Dr Theodora Kalentzi regarding menopause was brilliant. She took the time to listen to all my symptoms, we went over my medical history thoroughly to make sure HRT was the right treatment for me, she explained different treatments and let me decide what I would be most comfortable with, and I went out of the clinic knowledgeable and confident that I made the right decision, not only in the treatment which was prescribed, but the doctor I chose. Thank you Dr Kalentzi for an excellent consultation.
