Athlete Physicians

Saoirse pointed out this New York Times article that describes how athletes often seek out physicians who are athletic.

Knowing this, how can I put it to work for me? Hmmm....

That's an interesting article. I don't know that I go so far as to seek out athletic physicians, but I definitely note it if it comes up in discussion that they are. I've tried to find a vegan general care physician, but haven't had much luck there (it's a hard thing to search for - but my town is small enough that word-of-mouth gets around pretty fast).

Very interesting. My physicial doesn't seem to have a clue about nutrition, let alone nutrition for athletes. I haven't invested much time in finding a new Dr (I'm much more of a grumbler). But, if you could find a way to market yourself as such, I bet the clients would come running. ha ha...running!

I defintely think patients seek out like minded individuals if they are athletes or veggies! Definitely something to think about if you advertise.

I actually just discovered your blog in my attempt to find a vegetarian or vegan-friendly general care physician in Los Angeles. There has got to be one out there, but I'm having a hard time tracking one down. I know that I'm not alone in the desire to find a doctor who would be informed about and accepting of my diet. If Dr. Shenkman or anyone posting/reading here knows off a veggie-friendly Los Angeles GP, please let me know! helen.jupiter *at* gmail Thank you!
