ICP 9: Dr. Ted Barnett- High tech doctor with low tech solutions.
In this weeks episode, I speak to Dr. Ted Barnett, aka. Dr. Veggie. Ted is an Interventional Radiologist in Rochester, NY. By and large, a lot of what he does day in and day out is an attempt to counter the bad effects of people’s diets and lifestyles. He is the high tech doctor with low tech solutions and believes all doctors, especially those who perform procedures, should spend at least part of each day trying to put themselves out of business.
Dr. Barnett is one of those doctors who’s done so much for lifestyle medicine yet you’ve probably never heard of him. I’m so glad I am able to bring a guy like Dr. Barnett onto the Podcast because he deserves more recognition than he has gotten. He’s a self-less individual driven to make people healthier by providing evidenced based information and by treating the root cause of their chronic ailments. He is leading the charge in putting Rochester, NY on the map as a hub for plant-based and lifestyle medicine and wants to ultimately make Lifestyle Medicine mainstream medicine.
