Benefits of seeing a Dietitian

Our dietitian will assess your current diet, your risk factors, and your lifestyle, in order to better understand your needs.  She can then make recommendations and design an eating/nutrition plan that suits your needs and helps you deal with your problem.  An emphasis is placed on healthy eating habits and lifestyle changes as the cornerstones to reducing risks and preventing/controlling diseases.

Follow up appointments can be scheduled to monitor your progress, answer questions, provide support and to make changes as required.

The dietitian will make your physician aware of her recommendations at the time of your visit.
