I need a doctor, and one that's sympathetic to my diet would be good.

Are there vegetarian/vegan doctors in austin that anyone can recommend?

I'm in the same situation Tiffany.  I'm just going to go to the nearest doctor, and cross my fingers.  If he or she is an ass, I'll go to another one, until I find a good one.  If I do, I'll let you know!

i haven't been to any general health doctors in austin other than the ones at the university. they've been really cool about my diet there though, and encouraging as far as herbal and self-treatment.

wish i could be of more help...good luck!

I love my doctor... Her name is Sophie Hunt, last time I saw her she was vegetarian. It's been awhile though. But she's super sweet and caring.

If anyone goes to her, tell her I said HI! excited

Hello all!  This is my first post!  happy  

I'm a nurse, and a veggie patient.  It's tough out there for any new/old vegan!

I started out 3 years ago going to a nutritionist to advise me about vegan nutrition...she had a lot about the glycemic index (which IS very good info), but not much on vegan nutrition as a whole.

As for my doctor, I asked for a referral to the nutritionist and he didn't do much but laugh at me...grr...think I'll try YOUR doc, too!

Your pal in Buda,

Martha

Well I saw Sophie Hunt and she really was nice doctor! She's raising her new baby vegetarian. I would definitely recommend her. She did say she loves Casa de Luz.

ChrisB, I told her you said "Hi", and she said "Oh I know him, he's vegan"
