Dr. Takacs focuses in women's health at Gateway Natural Medicine in Berthoud, CO. She became interested in women’s health after seeing many friends and family members suffer from various conditions. Learning that symptoms like cramping during menstruation and hot flashes during menopause are abnormal, is what gave Dr. Takacs her desire to treat women.  She hopes to educate women on female conditions, explaining why they occur, as well as tips for prevention.
