In Their Own Words

 Dr. Orestes Gutierrez

By: Maddy Henson

Dr. Gutierrez is a holistic, primary care physician based in Eugene, Oregon. He owns his own practice and is Navy and Mayo Clinic trained. Gutierrez’s connection to the, highly carnivorous,  Cuban culture makes him an unlikely source for practicing a plant based diet. Yet, he has been vegan for almost 20 years.
