Plant-Based Doctor Directories

  • Plant-based Docs

    Plant-based Docs is a powerful smart-directory that will connect you with medical professionals committed to using a food-as-medicine-first approach to care.

  • Find a Doctor

    Find a Doctor offers a worldwide database for patients seeking physicians and other health care professionals who promote plant-based nutrition as part of their practice. Designed and maintained by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

  • Alternative method to find vegan-friendly doctors:

    You can find a vegan-oriented Facebook group for your town or state by searching for Facebook groups with “vegan” and your town or state in their name. Then you can search within the group for recommendations that have already been shared, or you can submit a new question to the group asking for recommendations of vegan-friendly doctors in your area.
