About the Harvey Center

Make The Harvey Center your first choice for comprehensive proactive healthcare

If you believe that “prevention is the best cure,” you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to The Harvey Center, the oldest, most established functional and holistic medicine center in Sarasota.

Fred Harvey, MD, has served the Sarasota community since 1996. A skilled physician with 30 years of medical experience, including 20 years in Functional Medicine and Holistic Medicine, Dr. Harvey is triple board-certified in Internal Medicine, Geriatrics and Holistic Medicine.

His center has a strong focus on preventive care and wellness; The Harvey Center offers unique treatments for unique health challenges in people of all ages. Dr. Harvey offers personal, one-on-one care with a great bedside manner that makes patients feel comfortable. He listens and takes the time to provide a thorough consultation, diagnosis and treatment.

“I entered this area of medicine after I became disenchanted with cookbook medicine that focuses on naming a disease, blaming the disease and taming the disease with drugs and surgery. I found traditional medicine to be very good at treating severe illness, but woefully inadequate when it came to treating people with chronic illnesses.”

“I want to help people thrive and live healthy, vital lives. I want to help people prevent diseases, avoid unnecessary surgeries and achieve real wellness. Integrative Medicine combines the best of Western Medicine with alternative and holistic therapies. I want to help the whole person, not just an illness. And I believe that optimal wellness is much more than the absence of illness. It’s functioning at 100% of your abilities for the rest of your life. I love giving my patients the tools and treatments to achieve that.”

Introduction to Function Medicine with Dr Fred Harvey and the Harvey Center Team

This is a 1/2 hour one-on-one consultation as an introduction to Functional Medicine, and the opportunity to discuss one health concern with Dr. Fred Harvey.
From this brief consultation, patients learn about the benefits of a functional medicine approach, how their lifestyle choices affect their wellness and some specific options to address the health concern shared from Dr. Harvey. From this intro consultation, it is our sincere hope that you will decide to pursue your optimal health with the Harvey Center team.

The next step would be to schedule a full medical consultation appointment for accurate diagnosis and launch your care plan implementation. The Harvey Center 2 hour consultation will go in depth into past medical history with a 22 page new patient intake packet. Upon completion of the 2 hour appointment, specific testing, supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes are often implemented with our team. Dr. Harvey will develop and explain your customized wellness plan to address your health concerns and strive for your optimal health - often working in conjunction with our dietitian and your primary care physician.
