Dr. Barbara Plucknett, M.D. began her voyage of medicine in 1991, where she earned her Medical doctorate at Pennsylvania State University. At that time, Dr. Plucknett felt a strong attraction towards the practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology and elected to focus her specialty on helping women with reproductive health issues and pregnancy. Dr. Plucknett completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Medical Center of Delaware in 1995, followed by fellowships at Greater Baltimore Medical Center and the University of Maryland Medical System. Currently, Dr. Plucknett is an active fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and is expertly trained in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine (FAAM).
Dr. Barbara Plucknett, founder and Medical Director of Whole Body Health MD and an active member of BodyLogicMD’s network of integrative medicine and bioidentical hormone experts, is a skilled surgeon and gynecologist and has helped pave the way as a leading innovative Urogynecologist. After 16 years of private practice, Dr. Plucknett recognized the physical manifestations that aging and stress can wreak on the body, and decided to take a different approach. Instead of solely treating symptoms, Dr. Plucknett transitioned in anti-aging and integrative medicine where she focuses on the root cause of her patients’ ailments and delivers treatment options that help improve longevity, regain youthful energy, achieve hormonal balance, and provide opportunities for actual disease prevention.
In January 2012, Dr. Plucknett joined Dr. Kenneth Varano at BodyLogicMD of Philadelphia. Shortly after, she opened Whole Body Health MD in Wayne, NJ where Dr. Plucknett dedicates her practice to helping women and men find relief from hormonal imbalances such as menopause, andropause (the male menopause), adrenal fatigue and thyroid disorders. Dr. Plucknett uses a tiered methodology to wellness, combining customized nutrition and fitness regimens with bioidentical hormone therapy.
