I found out about paleo from Dr. Lorenzato in Foster City, at Mariner Medical Center. He also advocates the Mediterranean diet but at least he's supportive of paleo.

Check out Paul Abramson MD 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. He's here in San Francisco, and is "out of network" for insurance, but had a biller who submitted claims after the fact for me.

BTW, it's Chris Kresser (with an e).

My friend has reported good experiences with Dr. Thomas Cowan in San Francisco. He's more Weston Pricey than pure Paleo, but from talking to her I don't think he'd disagree with most aspects of most "paleo" diets.
And yes, Dexter beat me to it, I was going to suggest Chris Krisser as well. But he's a doctor of Chinese medicine. He's low on the woo factor actually and explains Chinese medicine from a scientific perspective. So you'd have to be comfortable going to a Chinese medicine doc instead of an MD/DO or what have you. But given what most physicians know about nutrition, I'd see Dr. Krisser.
