Michale “Mickey” Barber, M.D.

Dr. Michale “Mickey” Barber offers an integrative approach to age management medicine while providing the patient with an assessment of hormonal balance and overall health and disease risk. Her philosophy for successful aging includes maintaining energy, health, and sexual vigor through shared responsibility of the patient-doctor team. Dr. Barber not only teaches her patients about hormonal balance but practices such balance herself. She has competed in Masters level figure competitions at the age of 48 placing second and ten years later competing to a standing ovation. Given a strong family history of heart disease and cancer, she takes her health very seriously and is a living example of the benefits of the program.

Dr. Barber has been CEO/CMO of Cenegenics Carolinas for ten years and recently founded Better Life, an Age Management and Wellness Center. She graduated from The College of Charleston, completed medical school at The Medical University of South Carolina, did her residency at Tulane University, and finished her fellowship at Harvard. She also was an assistant professor at Tulane University. During her training and career in academic medicine, she received several awards for clinical performance and teaching skills. Throughout her academic and private practice, she passionately pursued her interest in health, nutrition, exercise, and mind-body medicine. Further studies and certification in Age Management Medicine allow her to combine her unique interests and training to empower her patients to live vigorous, healthy lives at any age. In November 2012, Dr. Barber was awarded the top honor in her field and presented with the Alan P. Mintz Award for Clinical Excellence in Age Management Medicine.

She has been featured on television across the country and in publications including The Charleston Mercury, Shape Magazine, The Senior Sun, The Charleston City Paper, The Charleston Regional Business Journal, The Charlotte Business Journal, and Vogue. She is a Maria Shriver “Architect for Change.” She also writes a featured column for Man about Town, a local Charleston publication. Dr. Barber is a sought after lecturer on age management and hormone replacement.

Dr. Mickey and her husband reside in Isle of Palms and share a blended family of five wonderful children and three adorable granddaughters. She is a sports enthusiast, golfer, Saints fan and enjoys working out at the beach.
