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.”
