Ah good to know, a year ago I went to Mariner Medical, wish I had known about Lorenzato.

Wow, I wish I knew. That's where I go too, but I was given another doctor as my main physician, and she's been difficult with stuff (for example, she didn't know what reverse T3 was, and she wouldn't test for that when I asked). Now that you mention this name instead, that's the doctor I will be seeing from now on.

Dr. Lorenzato at Mariner Medical Center in Foster City actually recommended the paleo diet to me a couple years ago. He talked to me like I was an intelligent human and answered my questions. He'll run bloodwork, too. Highly recommended.

I don't know him personally in any way.

Kathleen H. King, DO, is moving there from Sacramento. :-(((

She is very Ancestral. More Paleo than I am. She's not sure yet where she will practice.

Yup, I know of a doctor who encouraged me to go Paleo about a year ago

http://www.cpmc.org/dr-jane-m-hightower.html

She is very into diet tweaks to alleviate minor health conditions (minor in my case, at least). Big on sauerkraut, kombucha, meat, veggies, little fruit, no gluten, etc.

Check out Dr. Paul Abramson at My Doctor Medical Group: http://mydoctorsf.com. He's Paleo-friendly and has even presented data from his own personal Paleo experiments at a Quantified Self meetup.

I go to Dr. Swan at http://www.wholefamilymd.org/index.php and I really like her. I believe she is a pretty non-judgmental vegetarian herself. This guy http://www.wholefamilymd.org/index.php Thomas Cowan is a big wig in the Weston A Price scene and I've heard good things about him.

This group of family practice physicians are great - they do not accept insurance, but will provide a superbill for you: http://www.wholefamilymd.org/index.php. All of them are great and are trained in traditional, osteopathic, and other alternative methods.

What kind of doctor? I know a naturopath in Berkeley who can possibly help with some things- do you need blood work, etc.?
