Dr. Michele Blackwell
A little bit about me.
I am Board Certified In Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine as well as in Obstetrics and Gynecology, currently practicing general Gynecology, having retired from the practice of Obstetrics in 2013. I have been in practice since 1998, having worked in academic environment for the first 10 years of my career, and making the move into private practice in 2009. I am now able to focus on providing more individualized health care for both women and men as we age and go through hormonal changes associated with aging. I am fascinated by the aging human body and ways to improve quality of life as we age and prevention of diseases. With that in mind, hormonal imbalances can occur as early as the third decade of life. I am constantly learning in an effort to improve the quality of women’s and men’s’ lives.
I believe that there are many hurdles in traditional medicine to overcome in educating both physicians and the public about how the key to health lies in nutrition and lifestyle and hormone balance. I am very passionate about helping my patients be “well.” My practice philosophy has changed tremendously over the years. I am committed to providing my patients with effective, personalized healthcare, using Bio Identical hormones that are customized to each individuals’ needs, not just plugging numbers into computer models. Through my education with the Academy of Anti Aging Medicine I have also learned to safely provide bioidentical, customized hormone replacement therapy to my patients in the perimenopausal and menopausal years, as well as treating thyroid disorders in women of all ages.
