Dr. Karen Plymel, MD, ABOIM, ABAARM, FACOG

I began my career in a small, rural town in the south and have since been recognized as a top physician in the Detroit area for over 15 years. As my career progressed, I embraced the importance of treating patients with a holistic approach while appreciating the unique composition making up each individual.  

My belief in an integrated approach to medicine shifted my focus to metabolic medicine, which led to accreditation through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. This field of patient care presents unlimited opportunities to help my patients work toward their goals of optimal health. 

By employing cutting edge testing methods to arrive at the underlying causes of health issues I am able to treat each patient with a personalized approach. My years of clinical experience combined with my continued acquisition of medical knowledge help me to identify the root cause of my patients symptoms.


I use my traditional training in combination with alternative therapies to treat my patients' with a personalized approach and develop a plan to optimize their healthy outcomes. 


I am known best for my work in male and female bio-identical hormones, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, preconception, CIRS, leaky gut, leaky brain, nasal pathogens, mold and environmental toxins.
