Vegan Doctors/Physicians In Tucson

Hi Everyone,
A close relative of mine is a lifelong carnist and doesn't go a meal without including animal protein in it. He is now in his 50's and suffering from the typical diseases that come from this sort of eating. He is very active, so physical fitness isn't really the issue. He has a family that loves him and would like him to be around and healthy for the next couple of decades or so.
His "conventional" doctor(s) have him on several medications and refuse to entertain the idea that nutrition plays a role in his ailments. Does anyone know of a doctor in Tucson who will be at least open to the notion, or better yet , a proponent of a plant-based diet for health/disease prevention?
Thanks, and sorry if I included " tmi."
Deb

Hi Deb,

Dr. Ted Crawford is local:
http://www.drherbivore.com/­

He's a D.O. not an M.D. not sure if that matters. You can see an appearance by him and a patient of his on a local TV show here:

He's speaking at the event on Saturday, so I'm thinking he may be getting some calls come Monday from people looking for appointments.

Healthy You also started a Google Group for "plant-based" medical professionals in Southern AZ, I'll get that group address from them, there may be others. There's the Raw Cardiologist in town too:
