Manhattan Primary Care Doctor Recommendations

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created February 07, 2012 at 5:58 PM

Does anyone know of a primary care doctor in NYC that understands the Paleo lifestyle? I'm just looking for a check-up. Is there a resource/network for finding doctors like this?

Thanks!

Yes, I got full blood work done on a fairly regular basis. I'm not sure what VAP is, but probably doable. He is not purely paleo per se, but many of his patients are paleo or primal. He prescribes medication as a last resort and focuses more on diet and supplements. When I was last there, he was not part of any insurance plan, but they submit to yours so you can get reimbursed. I am diabetic, and was very well controlled when I was his patient.

Del can you tell us something more about Dr. Berkowitz? Is there some special thing he did to help you? What do you like about him?

Is he cool about ordering blood tests that many other doctors sometimes refuse to order, eg VAP?

My uncle is a massage therapist in NYC, want me to ask him?

My uncle has had quite a few Paleo conversations with me, and might have a suggestion.

Hunh, is this good networking or a dangerous 'crossing the streams'*?


*"crossing the streams" is what my wife and I call it when parts of our life that had not encountered each other before, can now start interacting.

Yes! Keith Berkowitz! I live in LA now and miss him so much! He is very low carb/primal/paleo friendly. Here is a link to his site:
