    Default Vegan(-friendly) Doctors Near Philadelphia

    Anyone aware of vegan(-friendly) doctors in the Philadelphia area. I need to get a physical but would like to be seen by someone who actually knows something about nutrition. Any leads would be greatly appreciated!

    Check out an osteopath (DO) or naturopath. They have more knowledge and training in nutrition than do MDs. My osteopath has no problem with veganism and is willing to find vegan medicines/ supplements when possible. I'm not sure how much actual medicine that naturopaths can prescribe, but DOs can do everything that MDs do.
