Overland Park, KS — Sara Talken, MD, is being recognized by Continental Who’s Who as a Pinnacle Physician for her distinguished career in Obstetrics and Gynecology and in acknowledgment of her work with Specialists in Women’s Care.
A highly trained, board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist, Dr. Sara Talken specializes in comprehensive women’s health care, from well-woman exams and routine gynecology to pregnancy care and management of menopause and mid-life issues and conditions. She has been in practice since August 2019 with Specialists in Women’s Care, providing care to patients at their offices in Olathe and Lansing, KS.
Dr. Talken and her fellow team of physicians at Specialists in Women’s Care offer their patients board-certified expertise with more than 100 years of combined experience to meet the needs of women at every stage of life. The clinic’s mission is to ensure that women have close access to quality healthcare from doctors they know and trust.
Alongside her clinical practice, Dr. Talken is affiliated with Overland Park Regional Medical Center. The 343-bed hospital has been serving the healthcare needs of the Kansas City metropolitan region since December 1978. A fun fact is that Dr. Talken was born at the hospital where she now delivers babies.
Dr. Talken knew from a young age that she wanted to become a doctor and work in women’s healthcare. Widely known as a passionate, caring physician, she makes a point to listen closely to her patients’ concerns and help get to the bottom of whatever medical issues they might be experiencing. “I love working with OB-Gyn patients because I love the continuity of the profession,” the physician says. “I want my patients to know that I’m part of their team. Whether it’s them having a baby or struggling with (menstrual) period issues and pain, my number one goal is their health and safety. They can always trust me and know that I’m going to take excellent care of them.”
In pursuit of her career, Dr. Talken earned her Medical Degree at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. She then completed her residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center. She served as Chief Resident and received both Student Excellence and Medical Student Teaching awards.
Outside of work, Dr. Talken enjoys spending time with her family. She is married with two young children, ages 3 and eleven months, so much of her free time is spent doing “little-kid” activities. One of their favorite family outings is visiting the zoo.
