Looking For A General Doc Near San Francisco

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My GP is closing her practice this month, and I'm sort of stranded without one now. (So is my partner, who saw the same doc.) she was great, even if she didn't believe I have a gluten problem. She blamed everything on fibromyalgia. So I'd like a chronic pain and illness literate doctor, preferably one who subscribes to a "health at every size" philosophy, as much of the mistreatment I've received over the years had everything to do with their fat-phobia and disinterest in practicing good medicine.

It was so hard to find this doc, and she's the ONLY one who treated me with any dignity... I feel so stuck!

Hopefully this time around I'll find someone even better who knows about celiac and DH, too.

Anyone local by any chance? I'm in east bay (Berkeley or Oakland -ish) but would go to SF for the right doc.

Actually, have you considered seeing Dr. Vikki Petersen or her husband? They have a practice in Sunnyvale and wrote the book, "The Gluten Effect." You'd have to check to make sure they take your insurance....but I understand they're great!

Here's her site:

BTW, I and other celiacs sometimes meet up at Mariposa Bakery in Oakland on Saturdays. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just let me know. I live in Martinez.

We are using HealthNOW, and we love Dr. Preeti! We have made tremendous progress in coping with our gluten intolerance since starting our work with them a year ago. We had to fly in to see them, but they have been so very helpful. If we lived anywhere near there, I would be seeing Dr. Rupa too - she was awesome for helping us assess and overcome some of our issues too. I wish I could see Dr. Rupa regularly, but we live many states away! We regularly consult with Dr. Preeti and love how much helpful advice she has been able to provide us on an ongoing basis.

Good luck finding your new doctor!
