I'm searching for a new primary care physician in the San Diego area who is Paleo-friendly and uses integrative techniques (extensive blood/lipid/hormone/vitamin testing, encourages supplements, uses pharma drugs as a "last resort"). Does a registry exist to find doctors who won't force the FDA Food Pyramid down my throat?
I found one MD that's close to my target, but they're tightly aligned with Dr. Andrew Weil (aka Dr. Grains-N-Legumes). I'm hesitant to go there due to Dr. Weil's perceived hostility to the hunter-gatherer lifestyle.
BTW, I LOVE PALEOHACKS!!

Check out the Paleo Physician Network, coordinated by Robb Wolf and Loren Cordain.

The closest I've found is Jimmy Moore's link to low-carb doctors.

Check out fuctionalmedicine.org. Not paleo but headed in the right direction.

Although it will not find you a physician immediately, I would urge you to attend the First Ancestral get together http://ancestryfoundation.org/ Will happen sometime in 2011 in the Los Angeles area. Lots of the paleo bloggers will be there as well perhaps some physicians and other folks in the medical field.

Patrik may/will probably be there. No excuses since you have at least a year to plan!

I am halfway done with my Family med residency and would love to be in a registry such as this. I am looking into a niche practice where concerned, motivated patients actually want to change and get off meds. I might do a Sports Med fellowship too. I feel like I miss the boat on everything in life.
Currently reside near the Black Hills/Badlands of South Dakota!
