Welcome to Vegan Primary Care

Finding the right Primary Care doctor can be difficult, no matter who you are. But when you’re a vegan, it can be even harder. That’s why we created Vegan Primary Care. A telehealth practice licensed to help you in most US States, providing care from a vegan doctor’s perspective.

As board-certified physicians, we provide many of the same services as any primary care doctor you see in person – writing prescriptions, ordering imaging or lab tests, and making referrals. But rather than rely only on the Western model of medicine, which manages chronic conditions with pills, we believe in plant-based care that seeks to achieve optimum health through a whole-foods plant-based diet, enjoyable exercise and maintaining quality relationships.

Our focus on individual treatment is evident in everything we do. We value the doctor-patient relationship, and get to know you personally. Initial appointments are 1 hour with 30 minute follow ups so you never feel rushed.

We look forward to helping support and maintain your long-term health. Contact us so we can get started.

Meet Dr. Scott Harrington, DO

Vegan Primary Care is the creation of Dr. Scott Harrington DO. He is a board-certified Family Medicine physician with over 17 years of experience. He started his career using standard methods. Then he personally adopted a plant-based diet in 2012. Since then, his energy levels, exercise endurance and recovery time dramatically improved. His weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels all normalized. This convinced Dr. Harrington to focus on teaching patients what he learned. The plant-based diet had impressive effects with his patients. Many patients suffering with chronic illnesses improved dramatically. Many patients were able to stop all their medications.

No. This is an identified glitch that we are working on. All appointments are listed in the Eastern Standard Time (EST) timezone. Be careful, if you live in California (Pacific Time) you are 3 hours behind the time where the practice is located in Florida (Eastern Standard Time). At this time you will have to adjust your appointment time to the associated EST in Florida. For example, if you live in California and want to be seen at 7:30 AM (PT), you will choose the appointment for 10:30 AM (EST). We are very sorry about this glitch and are working hard to fix it.

Don’t worry, Dr. Scott Harrington will call you if there is a technical issue. Before the visit, check go to the Elation Passport portal to see your medical chart and ensure you can log in. To see if your device (phone, tablet or computer) is working properly for a video visit you could perform a test Zoom call with friends or family. Download the Zoom app before your visit. 

We ask that you are ready and logged on to the telemedicine appointment 5 minutes prior to your scheduled time.

Our no show fee is $25.

As a Family Doctor I am trained for all age groups, from newborns to seniors. However, I am unable to provide vaccinations for children under 3 years old. For this age group I can still provide care for many ailments but it is best for you to have a provider that can give your child their required vaccinations. After 3 years of age, local pharmacies can provide vaccinations. 

Telemedicine is being relied upon more and more, but sometimes you need to have an in-person exam. In Primary Care, many times a visit is about listening to your concerns, providing lifestyle recommendations, as well as ordering tests and specialty care. With video visits, I will be able to see many exam findings but not all. The heart, lung and ear exam are are not possible through basic video visits. In cases where the exam will change the diagnosis, I recommend being seen at a local urgent care facility for a same day appointment. There are devices for purchase that make these exams possible (heart, lung, ear) such as the Tytocare device. I will be partnering with TytoCare to provide you full service telemedicine if you purchase a TytoCare device.

Please allow seven business days for routine test results. If you haven’t heard from us within that time, you should check the patient portal. If there is an abnormal result requiring urgent attention, you will be contacted as soon as the result is reviewed.

For a routine lab order request, please send us a message in the portal. Please allow 48 hours to process.

Oftentimes Specialty referrals are a part of the medical visit. If you have a referral requirement, then request this via the portal in advance of scheduling your specialty appointment. Referral requests can take up to one week to process.
